Event description

Description

Photographer Alfred Wertheimer enjoyed almost unrestricted access to Elvis Presley when Elvis was 21, the year before Elvis exploded onto the international music scene. Wertheimer’s fine art photographs, many unpublished, illuminate not only Elvis, but the culture and history of the time. Murray integrates art and music in his retrospective of 1956 that draws on his research and personal experiences used in preparing exhibitions across the country.

Chris Murray is a writer and the founder of Govinda Gallery in Georgetown, which represents rock music-related fine art photographers. Murray has organized over 250 exhibitions of many of the leading artists of our time, from Andy Warhol in the 1970s to Annie Leibovitz’s first exhibition in 1984. He was co-curator of the Smithsonian Institution’s exhibition “Elvis at 21” and is the author of more than 15 books on visual culture, including Alfred Wertheimer: Elvis and the Birth of Rock and Roll and Rolling Stones 50x20.
