There is a new Exhibit of the work of PETER HUJAR a quintessential East Village photographer in the 1970’s and 1980’s whose stark black and white images beautifully captured a shifting generation who would soon be almost decimated by the AIDS pandemic, which would kill him too.
The show, Peter Hujar: Speed of Life, looks at the work the legend left behind, three decades after his death. It is composed of 140 photographs drawn from the Morgan Library & Museum, New York, the most comprehensive public collection of the artist’s work. Curated by Joel Smith, the exhibition adopts the traditional retrospective format while staying true to Hujar’s vision.
