"It's Only Rock 'n' Roll, Baby!" is a group show from Brussels Beaux Arts Centre that documents the art works of successful pop and rock musicians whose first love were Fine Arts. Patti Smith, Yoko Ono, Pete Doherty and David Byrne all started their creative career outside the music world.
Former Roxy Music member and U2 producer Brian Eno examines the historic roots of the historic connection between pop music and UK art schools. Other artists featured in the programme for ARTE are: Chicks on Speed, Kembra Pfahler, Kyle Field, Bianca Casady from CocoRosie and electronic music pioneer Alan Vega from Suicide. Curator Jérome Sans opens the exhibition with a live performance of his own Electro act.
