10 June - 27 September 2010. This exhibition focuses on the powerful impact that photography can have on a city such as New York.
In modern society, carefully composed photographs have the power to make or break; indeed architects, photographers and urban regenerators are more receptive than most when it comes to noticing buildings, and photographs of buildings, either in need of improvement or worthy of acclaim.
Visitors to this show are offered the chance to find beauty in the most unlikely urban environments, including the city's de-industrialisation and subsequent neglect in the 1970s. 'Mixed Use, Manhattan' displays a number of important photographic series including Alvin Baltrop's 'Hudson River' (1975-86), David Wojnarowicz's 'Rimbaud in New York' (1978-1979) and, more recently, 'Tree + Fence' by Zoe Leonard.
Mon-Sat: 10.00-21.00. Sun: 10.00-14.30. Closed Tuesday
