MoAD, San Francisco is presenting “Love or Confusion: Jimi Hendrix in 1967” through August 27, 2017.Composed of photographs taken of Jimi Hendrix in 1967, this exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the infamous Summer of Love and the entrance of Jimi Hendrix as one the greatest guitarists of all time. As Jimi Hendrix walked out onto the stage at Monterey Pop, he was also stepping out for his American Rock and Roll debut. Playing with The Jimi Hendrix Experience, he introduced himself to California at the festival before the US release of his first album. In a moment that solidified Hendrix as a rock idol, his performance was enlivened with rock theatrics, sexual flamboyance and magnetic guitar riffs. An integrated band with a black front man, The Jimi Hendrix experience represented racial and sexual freedom as goals of the 1960s counterculture.The exhibition is on view at MoAD, 685 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA.For details, visit:             Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.
