On Sunday, October 9th, “Golden Years,” an exhibition of rock-and-roll concert photos by Ed Rosenbaum at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn opened as a part of Pioneer Works’ “Second Sundays” program. The exhibition, on display in the acclaimed exhibition and performance space’s third-floor galleries, will run through November 13th.
“Golden Years” features 20 never-before-seen images of musical icons David Bowie, Lou Reed, Elvis Costello, AC/DC, Aerosmith, The Pretenders, Blondie, Peter Gabriel, and many others. These photographs were taken by Ed Rosenbaum at rock-and-roll concerts in the New York area in the late ’70s and early ’80s, and they are being shown for the first time in this exhibition.
The exhibition directly relates to Golden Years: Photographs by Ed Rosenbaum, Esopus’s fall limited-edition artwork that will ship to Premium subscribers in late October. The 56-page, foiled-stamped and clothbound 10"-x-15” book features all of the photographs presented in the Pioneer Works exhibition as well as 20 additional images by Rosenbaum of Patti Smith, Frank Zappa, Carlos Santana, and others.
A closing reception and book-signing event with Rosenbaum in attendance will take place on November 13th from 5pm to 7pm.
