> The Jimi Hendrix Exhibition

The Jimi Hendrix Exhibition was produced by Exhibit A, London.
The exhibition collected the quintessential images of Hendrix to include work by the
most important photographers and artists of that time. Many of the images had rarely
been seen and included photographs by Linda McCartney, Terence Donovan and Jim Marshall
as well as the famous Rick Griffiths' eyeball print, which was commissioned by Hendrix.
Jimi's own quotes captioned the exhibition.

Video and audio components were also added, to make the exhibition a complete Hendrix Experience.
