It's not only Rock 'n' Roll, Baby! Opens at Bozar Expo in Brussels
Brian Eno, 55 Million Crystals. Permanent Installation. Swarovski Kristallwelten, opened December 2007.

BRUSSELS.- It's not only Rock 'n' Roll, Baby! Brings together for the first time a series of important works by musicians from the 1970s to our days, including Patti Smith, Brian Eno, Chicks on Speed, Fischerspooner, Devendra Banhart, Pete Doherty,... This exhibition, electrified by a unique collaboration with the Rock Werchter Festival, shows for the first time the other history of rock: the story of born musicians and artist in the world of art. Some twenty music icons are brought together for the first time, not to give a concert but to present their visual works. This is not about a movement, but about artists who have all followed individual roads, approaching art and music with an undivided soul. They show that these two means of expression are indivisible, despite their differences. It's not only Rock 'n' Roll, Baby! or how the voice of rock emerged in the visual arts.

The artists:
Alan Vega, Antony, Bent van Looy (Das Pop), Bianca Casady (Cocorosie), Brian Eno, Chicks on Speed, David Byrne, Devendra Banhart, Fischerspooner, Jonsi Birgisson (Riceboy Sleeps), Kembra Pfahler, Kyle Field, Laurie Anderson, Miss Kittin, Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeah's), Patti Smith, Pete Doherty, The Kills, The Residents and Yoko Ono!
