The Grunge Revolution on display at Palazzo Medici Riccardi

Inaugurated in early March and immediately forced to close, the exhibition Peterson - Lavine Come as you are. Kurt Cobain and the Grunge Revolution reopens at Palazzo Medici Riccardi, from 2 July until 18 October 2020.

A visual retrospective to rebuild the grunge musical history and that of its most famous and controversial leader, Kurt Cobain, front man of the Nirvana. Eighty photos, including some unpublished, tell the American counterculture hero of the 90s, between the end of the Cold War and the bluff of the New Economy.

The exhibition is divided into two sections: on one side the shots of Charles Peterson, official photographer of Sub Pop Records, focused on the origin of Nirvana, the concerts and the grunge scene in Seattle. On the other hand, the images of Michael Lavine, a famous advertising photographer, taken from more sophisticated services and photos for magazines. A powerful and unprecedented combination emerges, capable of transporting the audience into the amazing grunge era, where fans were the first proponents of the musical and social revolution.

The exhibition can be visited every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m., by reservation.
