poster for Richard Avedon "Performance"

This event has ended.

Although Avedon first earned his reputation as a fashion photographer, he is most known for his reinvention of the genre of photographic portraiture. The concept of "performance," in both life and art, was one of his central concerns. He photographed actors and comedians, pop stars and divas, musicians and dancers, artists in all mediums whose public lives were essentially performances. The exhibition features approximately 60 gelatin silver prints made over the course of more than 5 decades.
