Brassaï (Gyula Halász), Diane Arbus, and Nan Goldin are considered some of the most influential photographers that captured 20th century life. They portrayed their reality in revolutionary ways, photographing their private moments and making them public. This exhibition, curated by Lanka Tattersall, is organized around on three renowned photobooks of the each artist: Brassaï’s The Secret Paris of the 30’s (1976), Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph (1972), and Goldin’s The Ballad of Sexual Dependency (1986). Brassaï (1899 - 1984), a Hungarian artist, lived through both World Wars and photographed the essence of modern life and his celebrity friends at the time, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Alberto Giacometti. Diane Arbus (1923 – 1971), raised in New York, was one of the few recognized female photographers of her time, famous for wandering the streets of the city with a 35mm Nikon and taking black and white portraits of marginalized people, from giants to transgender people, to circus performers. Nan Goldin, born in the 1953, photographed LGBT sub-cultures all over the world, highlighting queer bodies, as well as the AIDS epidemic and substance abuse happening within the community. This exhibition will be open to the public until September 3rd at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, California.
