Organized through the lens of the 1960s, when interdisciplinary artistic experimentation flourished and traditional mediums were radically transformed, the Museum of Modern Art’s re-installation of its fourth floor galleries  includes, among other work: American Bonnie Maclean’s  poster “Bill Graham Presents (75) Yardbirds; Doors, Fillmore Auditorium, 7/25-30/67,” 1967. 7 x 4 1/2″ (17.8 x 11.4 cm). With his inkling for mixing genres at the Fillmore and Fillmore East auditoriums beginning in 1965 (his first concert was a benefit for the San Francisco Mime Troupe, where  he was business manger), Bill Graham could also be said to be a product of the genre-crossing Beat Generation.
