Photographed by Sub Pop Records founder Bruce Pavitt, Experiencing Nirvana provides an inside look into the early touring life of Nirvana, the Seattle grunge band whose spirit came to define the 90s. In this exhibit, Pavitt captures intimate moments of Kurt Cobain and his new band as they travel through Europe in 1989. By the time they reach London for a Sub Pop showcase, the relatively unknown Seattle group are proclaimed “Sub Pop’s answer to the Beatles” by the influential British press. Within two years, Nirvana would become the biggest rock act of their generation. This is the photographic story of the breakthrough that almost never happened.
