Anarchy to Affluence
66 Fifth Ave. Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries
This exhibition examines interiors, furniture, graphics, fashion & illustration produced in NYC between 1974 -1984, a period in which downtown artists, musicians, playwrights & designers created some of the most avant-garde work produced in America during the last century. This period was a time of anxiety & uncertainty in NYC. It was also a time of unprecedented creativity, marked by the birth of Punk, both as a style & a fm of music; the rise of fashion designers such as Patricia Field, Stephen Sprouse, & Betsy Johnson; & a movement toward industrial austerity in interior & graphic design, as practiced by designers such as Massimo & Lella Vignelli

Che! Revolution and Commerce
Alberto Korda's 1960 photograph of Che Guevara is claimed to be the most widely reproduced image in the history of photography. The portrait has shed many of the details of its subject and maker in its endless reproduction on posters, T-shirts, and kitsch objects, but has remained remarkably durable as a symbol of revolution and youthful rebellion. Through a presentation of contact sheets, original magazines, posters, photographs, and more, this exhibition examines the power of the image and the history of its circulation.
The Body at Risk
explores ten significant photographic projects from the last one hundred years that depict the vulnerabilities of the human condition. The exhibition shows how individual lives are shaped by a range of challenging circumstances, including war, disease, poverty, pollution, domestic violence, age, and labor. It provides insight into the social context in which the photographs were taken by integrating perspectives from anthropology, sociology, political history, photographic history, and news coverage along with writings and interviews by and with the photographers. Among the sixteen renowned photographers represented are Donna Ferrato, Lori Grinker, Lewis Hine, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Gideon Mendel, Sebastião Salgado, and W. Eugene Smith.
