'Lollapalooza Nation: The Rise of Alternative Rock in the 1990s'

When: Thu., Sept. 16, 7:30 p.m. 2021

Painter John Newsom, who curated the current exhibition "Expedition," has said that one source of inspiration for the group shows he organizes is Lollapalooza, the groundbreaking festival that transformed the music scene when he was a student at the Rhode Island School of Design. In this Zoom presentation, he and music historian Theo Cateforis, author of Are We Not New Wave?: Modern Pop at the Turn of the 1980s, discuss the forces that gave rise to the festival and its lasting legacy a quarter-century later.
