Since the '60s, rock has, alongside other so-called popular cultures such as S.F., been one of the new areas explored by visual artists who find it a wonderful source of inspiration and energy. Derived from blues and country, country American music, rock is a typically teenage culture whose history moves between industrial fun and suburban revolt. Celebrated with nostalgia or parodied with virulence, its ‘religion’ haunts, from Pop Art, a complete side to modern art, with its electric and devilish distortions. From political revolt to identity crisis, not to mention artistic nihilism.
