Taking place on the 50th anniversary (to the day) of the opening reception for MoMA’s 1967 New Documents exhibition, New Documents: Fifty Years Later brings together three key figures who visited the landmark photography exhibition in 1967 and whose critical reflections have shaped our understanding of its legacy. The exhibition, organized by John Szarkowski, then director of MoMA’s Department of Photography, featured Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand, singularly important artists of the 20th century who were largely unknown at the time. In celebration of this anniversary the Museum is publishing Arbus, Friedlander Winogrand: New Documents, 1967, featuring new essays by curator Sarah Meister and critic Max Kozloff, and an abundance of previously unpublished archival material.
Sarah Meister, Curator, Department of Photography, MoMA, will frame the evening with an introduction that draws from her extensive research for the book Arbus Friedlander Winogrand: New Documents, 1967. This will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by art historian Rob Slifkin and featuring artists Max Kozloff, Tod Papageorge, and Martha Rosler, all of whom have written persuasively on related subjects.
Arbus Friedlander Winogrand: New Documents, 1967 will be available for purchase at the reception following the discussion.
Theater 3 seating for this program is sold out. Tickets for a live screening of the event in our Time Warner Theater are available to purchase for $5. This will include access to the reception following the discussion.
