Dennis Stock Lecture at the Center for Photography at Woodstock:
Saturday August 15 8pm
Exhibition of Dennis Stock’s work on view through September 25th: ”WOODSTOCK GENERATION”
From the website:
“The Center for Photography at Woodstock is pleased to announce its upcoming fall solo exhibition by longtime Magnum photographer, Dennis Stock. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the original Woodstock Festival, the exhibition Woodstock Generation explores the alternative communities and culture of the hippie movement, which culminated in three historic days in August 1969.”
On view from August 8 – October 25, the exhibition Woodstock Generation chronicles a chapter in American history: a time when the quest for new social systems drove young hippies into the most remote regions of the United States, forging a new way of life in the form of communes. Faced with the alienation they felt within a changing American culture and the conventions of their former generation, and filled with a utopian ideal and an anarchistic temperament, these young rebels created intentional communities on the fringes of society.
