The Brooklyn Museum recently had a show "Who Shot Rock and Roll: A Photographic History 1955 - present"
This is on-line and was from 1999 "it's Only Rock and Roll: Rock and Roll Currents In Contemporary Art" is organized by Exhibition Management Inc. and is curated by David Rubin, Curator of Twentieth Century Art at the Phoenix Art Museum. The exhibition begins with Pop-inspired works from the 1960s by such artists as Derek Boshier and Peter Blake, demonstrating the manner in which artists integrated images from rock-and-roll culture in their work even in the early years of rock's ascendance. It continues with works from the later 1960s that suggest how a rock-and-roll "style" began to take visual form, manifested in Andy Warhol's silkscreen portraits of performers like Mick Jagger or Wallace Berman's psychedelic-era inspired collages. Since this time, rock and roll has inspired artists in disparate ways, as in Annie Leibovitz's memorable portraits of rock stars, Christian Marclay's conceptually based art incorporating such objects as album covers and recycled records, or Pruitt-Early's explorations of contemporary male teen culture and aesthetic values. In combining these diverse works, the exhibition also provides a fascinating look into the varied currents of contemporary visual arts over the last three decades"
