Press Release

Displayed concurrently with iseeyou in the gallery’s third viewing room is CITY VIEWS: André Kertész, Curated by Michael Wolf, featuring a selection of Kertész’ New York images which share a certain voyeuristic quality and reflect the artist’s sense of isolation in his adopted homeland. From the privacy of his Fifth Avenue apartment, Kertész hones his telephoto lens on anonymous city dwellers. Capturing passersby on the streets below, in the windows of adjacent buildings, sunbathing on rooftop gardens or walking in Washington Square Park, these images reveal the artist’s attempt to connect and reflect.
