Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Announces Plans to Exhibit Photographs By Legendary Producer Eddie Kramer
August 8 2001.
“From the Other Side of the Glass” to open in October
CLEVELAND (August 8, 2001) - The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has announced plans to open “From the Other Side of the Glass,” a collection of photographs by the legendary record producer Eddie Kramer on October 4, 2001 in the Museum’s Circular Gallery. The exhibit will run through early 2002.
“This exhibit originated when Eddie was here for the opening of the Jimi Hendrix Surround Sound Theater and Exhibit in September 2000,” said Jim Henke, Vice President of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. “These photos capture the artists in unguarded settings. This exhibit provides an inside look at the business for our visitors.”
“I never thought that these casual pictures would ever be anything more than personal remembrances. Only today, at the insistence of friends and colleagues, have I begun to appreciate the historic value of these rare images,” said Kramer.
Kramer has produced and engineered for some of the biggest names in rock music. From 1967 to 1972, Kramer captured over 1,000 images documenting many of the recording sessions, live performances and social interactions he experienced with the various artists with whom he worked. The Museum will exhibit nearly 50 of his photographs that capture such artists as the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Santana and Jimi Hendrix.
The not-for-profit Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum exists to educate the world about the history and significance of rock and roll music. The Museum carries out this mission through its efforts to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret this art form.
A media kit, complete with photos, will be available closer to the exhibit opening.
