Taschen Gallery’s newly opened 6,000-square-foot space curates exhibits to coincide with its impressive lineup of tomes. The inaugural show, “It’s Just a Shot Away: The Rolling Stones in Photographs,” displayed almost 100 photographs through 50 roller-coaster years with the rock ’n’ roll legends. This pop-culture-packed showcase was just a prelude of things to come: Says Taschen founder and publisher Benedikt Taschen (who also resides in L.A.), “We have a number of shows in the works from counter- to high culture. This should be fun.” 8070 Beverly Blvd., L.A., 323-852-9098; taschen.com.
