The show

Like every summer, the National Gallery of Umbria opens its doors to music, entrusting the Podiani room to the programming of Umbria Jazz and other local music festivals and setting up a photographic exhibition dedicated to music and musicians.

This year, from 25 June to 30 August 2020, it will be the turn of a great photographer, such as Art Kane (1925-1995), creator of some images firmly entered in the collective imagination.


Visionary and experimenter Kane also dealt with reportage, fashion, editorial photography, but in the Perugia exhibition there will be only the work on music, represented by the famous shots of the Who, Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison and Harlem (1958), the photography of Jazz 'most famous in the world', to which an entire room will be dedicated, where it will be possible to reconstruct the genesis of that small miracle that saw for the first and last time all fifty-seven jazz musicians of the caliber of Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie portrayed together , Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins.
