RICHARD PETERSON: ARTISTS & RoCKERS

 

March 30–June 24, 2012

Curated by Adam Lerner, this exhibition presents Richard Peterson’s portrait photographs of musicians and artists from the 1970s to the present, including Bruce Conner, Debbie Harry and Joey Ramone. The exhibition also includes recent portraits of artists at MCA Denver. Pairing recent and historical work, the exhibition captures Peterson’s persistent ability to find the unconventional heroics and idiosyncratic elements of his subjects.


The exhibition at MCA Denver is sponsored in part by MCA Denver’s Director’s Vision Society members and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The museum would like to further thank the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
