SCENE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE 1980'S NEW YORK ART SCENE
This exhibition presents a nice selection of artists' photo portraits, made in New York in the 1980's- some of them are also included in the volume “Scene”, published by Powerhouse Books. The lively and personal portraits' gallery brings back the flavour and brilliance of those years when in New York artists, gallerists and critics experimented new life styles and relations which with time have became established cult objects and models.
The photographs chosen for the exhibition are mostly linked to artists depicted with their works which are now part of the permanent collection, thus providing viewers with an interesting connection between the photo subject and the art works they were making at the time.
The exhibitions runs until September 28, 2014.
