1946: Trick mirror photographs people popping zits, picking noses

1946: Trick mirror photographs people popping zits, picking noses | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

For this assignment photographer Yale Joel set up a trick mirror in Times Square Theatre in 1946. It looked like an ordinary mirror to members of the public, but Joel was able to photograph those people through the glass. He captured a section of the New York community at their most informal, attending to items of personal grooming. Adjusting hats, stockings and hair, inspecting zits, teeth and noses.

Knud Lonberg-Holm: The Invisible Architect | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Ubu Gallery is pleased to present Knud Lonberg-Holm: The Invisible Architect, a debut exhibition devoted to this overlooked, yet highly influential, 20th Century modernist.

The exhibition, which consists of selections from the extensive archive assembled by architectural historian Marc Dessauce, will solidify the importance of this emblematic figure in early 20th Century cultural and architectural history. Metropolis Magazine, the national publication of architecture and design, will publish an article on Knud Lonberg-Holm to coincide with this groundbreaking exhibition.

MoMA | Vienna Unveiled: A City in Cinema

MoMA | Vienna Unveiled: A City in Cinema | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

MoMA celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Austrian Film Museum, Vienna, with a major collaborative exhibition exploring Vienna as a city both real and mythic in the history of cinema. Presented with additional contributions from the Filmarchiv Austria, and in association with Carnegie Hall’s Vienna: City of Dreams festival, the exhibition focuses on Austrian and German Jewish émigrés—including Max Ophuls, Erich von Stroheim, and Billy Wilder—as they look back on the city they left behind, along with an international array of contemporary filmmakers and artists—including Jem Cohen, VALIE EXPORT, Michael Haneke, Kurt Kren, Stanley Kubrick, and Richard Linklater—whose visions of Vienna reveal the powerful hold the city continues to exert over our collective unconscious.

Bill Cunningham and Editta Sherman: Who is he? Who is she?

Bill Cunningham and Editta Sherman: Who is he? Who is she? | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

In a happy accident on a Manhattan sidewalk in 1978, Bill Cunningham snapped photographs of Greta Garbo, oblivious to her identity, instead attracted to her distinct, nutria coat; countless photographs and over three decades later Cunningham’s keen eye has made him into a New York fashion institution. His weekly New York Times “Styles” section staples “On the Street” and “Evening Hours” are a bi-weekly digest of who’s who? in the Manhattan upper crust andwhat’s trending? on city streets. Prior to the Times, however, Cunningham found his two greatest muses, the city itself, and a close friend and fellow photographer, Editta Sherman, both of whom are the stars of the New-York Historical Society’s upcoming exhibition “Bill Cunningham: Façades.”

MoMA | Designing Modern Women 1890–1990

MoMA | Designing Modern Women 1890–1990 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Modern design of the twentieth century was profoundly shaped and enhanced by the creativity of women---as muses of modernity and shapers of new ways of living, and as designers, patrons, performers and educators. This installation, drawn entirely from MoMA's collection, celebrates the diversity and vitality of individual artists’ engagement in the modern world, from Loïe Fuller’s pulsating turn-of-the-century performances to April Greiman's 1980s computer-generated graphics, at the vanguard of early digital design.

Malick Sidibe at Jack Shainman Gallery

Malick Sidibe at Jack Shainman Gallery | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The photographs of Malick Sidibé remind us how the political content of an image can shift and evolve under the unpredictable influences of time and the arrival of new contexts. Currently on view at Jack Shainman Gallery, Sidibé’s work is a mix of black-and-white portraits and candid shots of local people from his native Bamako, Mali. The artist first began his work in photography by assisting a French colonial photographer and then later opened his own studio, Studio Malick, in 1962 in Bamako. Mali gained liberation from France in 1960, and Sidibé’s photographs taken throughout the ’60s and ’70s document a community of young Bamakois during this postcolonial transition and the subsequent socialist and military regimes.

Bringing together still and moving images, the MoMA exhibition A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio explores the use of studio space by photographers and artists beginning in 1826. “In this digital age in which a younger generation of photographers is going back to the studio, I felt it was important to acknowledge the role played by this space in photography’s history,” Quentin Bajac, the first non-American to head the New York museum’s photography department, told Time magazine.

Capa in Color

Capa in Color | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

This exhibition presents Robert Capa’s color work for the first time. Capa regularly used color film from the 1940s until his death in 1954. Some of these photographs were published in magazines of the day, but the majority have never been printed, seen, or even studied. Over the years, this aspect of Capa’s career has virtually been forgotten.

Magnum photographer Bruce Gilden opens up his archive of 'characters' | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

If Paul Giamatti has been dubbed our time's character actor, then Bruce Gilden must be our character photographer. Having grown up on the mean streets of Brooklyn in the 1960s, Gilden began his career snapping the larger-than-life 'characters' of his urban surroundings, from Coney Island's lobstered sunbathers to his local neighborhood tough guys.

Berlin : Fred Stein In an instant | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Fred Stein (b. 1909 in Dresden, Germany — d. 1967 in New York) has not received the attention he deserves. In his lifetime, he photographed the who’s who of the 20th century in his two adopted cities: Paris and New York. His lack of renown owes itself in part to his death before the surge of interest in photography in the 1970s.

Tod Papageorge Talks To Elizabeth Avedon

Tod Papageorge Talks To Elizabeth Avedon | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

This month, Galerie Thomas Zander presents its first exhibition of works by Tod Papageorge. On view is a series of seventy black and white photographs from the legendary New York nightclub Studio 54 that was frequented by the likes of Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Mick Jagger and Grace Jones. “Papageorge always had his camera at hand and between 1978 and 1980 he celebrated with the rich and beautiful, the artists and starlets; even today viewers can witness the eccentric and hedonistic party nights in his photographs. They revive the feeling of the disco era and express a profoundly urban spirit of directness, which condensed in New York at that time.”
