I know, I know, you’re sick of art fairs, but the AIPAD Photography Show is smaller and more manageable, I promise. Look, less than 100 exhibitors!
March 18 – 21, 2010
Park Avenue Armory
643 Park Ave & 67th Street
New York, NY 10065
Some of the Saturday afternoon “special events” look interesting. Here’s a partial list:
2:00 p.m.: STREET SEEN: The Psychological Gesture in American Photography, 1940-1959
This new exhibition, on view at the Milwaukee Art Museum from January 30 through April 25, 2010, examines a unique and pivotal moment in American photographic history. The first major examination of street photography of the 1940s and ‘50s in nearly 20 years includes work by Lisette Model, Robert Frank, Louis Faurer, Ted Croner, Saul Leiter, and William Klein – and uncovers a crucial time in American art, when global media was in its adolescence and photography was just beginning to achieve recognition in the contemporary art world. A highlight will be the New York debut of Time Capsule, a recently discovered short film by Louis Faurer.
