Step Into The Studio
Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania
Wednesday, November 30 @ 6:30pm
118 South 36th Street, Philadelphia
Step into the studios of New York School artists with Greg Dinkins of the New York Stereoscopic Society. In this special 3-D presentation, Dinkins will take the audience for a walk through 1950s New York via the stereo photographs of Max Margulis (1907-1996). Margulis, known for his work as a musician, writer, teacher, and co-founder of Blue Note Records, was also an avid stereo photographer. Photographing primarily from 1949 to 1957, he found inspiration in the street life of the Lower East Side, the studios of artists such as Willem de Kooning, and trips to Mexico with his friend Aaron Siskind. Dinkins has restored and remounted hundreds of these stereoviews, presenting them here alongside anecdotes gathered from interviews conducted with family and friends. 3-D glasses will be provided! Admission is free.
