New Documents: Fifty Years Later | MoMA LIVE

On the 50th anniversary of the opening reception for MoMA’s 1967 “New Documents” exhibition, “New Documents: Fifty Years Later” brings together three key figures who visited the landmark photography exhibition in 1967 and whose critical reflections have shaped our understanding of its legacy. The exhibition, organized by John Szarkowski, then director of MoMA’s Department of Photography, featured Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand, singularly important artists of the 20th century who were largely unknown at the time.

Sarah Meister, Curator, Department of Photography, MoMA, will frame the evening with an introduction that draws from her extensive research for the book “Arbus Friedlander Winogrand: New Documents, 1967.” This will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by art historian Rob Slifkin and featuring artists Max Kozloff, Tod Papageorge, and Martha Rosler, all of whom have written persuasively on related subjects.
