Steven Kasher Gallery is proud to present Weegee: Naked City. The exhibition is presented in conjunction with two major specifically-focused Weegee exhibitions, Weegee: Naked Hollywood at MoCA and Weegee: Murder is My Business at the ICP. They  will present over 140 Weegee prints that explore the full emotional, satirical and aesthetic range of Weegee’s photographs of New Yorkers and other urbanites. The exhibition features multiple prints from each of Weegee’s major subjects: Song and Dance, Drink, Party, Spectacle, Circus, Love and Sex, Crime and Disaster, Citizens, Celebrity, Art and Weegee Himself. The exhibition will also feature audio and film recordings of Weegee’s voice, one of the great guttural Jewish New Yorkese hybrids of spoken English.
Also at SKG: Vivian Maier through February 25th.
