This event has ended.

This exhibition brings together works by three of the most important photographers of the 1960s: Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, and Lisette Model. The intense creative relationships between these three artists helped to generate a new look in photographic portraiture, an idiosyncratic approaches to both style and subjects. Even today, their works are shocking in their boldness, and at the time their works, widely seen in magazines as well as on gallery walls, were revolutionary. The fifteen now-classic works in this exhibition are drawn from the exceptional corporate collection of photography initiated at the LaSalle Bank of Chicago by Beaumont Newhall in 1969, and recently acquired by Bank of America. The exhibition is organized by Brian Wallis, Chief Curator at the International Center of Photography.
