Peter Hujar: Lost Downtown, Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York, presents Lost Downtown, the gallery’s first solo exhibition by acclaimed photographer Peter Hujar (1934-1987). The exhibition, organised in collaboration with PACE/MACGILL, features over 20 portraits by the late photographer, which offer a fascinating glimpse of New York City’s downtown scene during the 1970s-80s. Hujar’s portraits evoke the same spirit and starkness as August Sander and Diane Arbus before him: clear, austere, and engaging.

Until 27 February.
