It was the most private opening in New York, "Richard Avedon" at the Gagosian Gallery. His grandsons William and Michael provided us with pictures and commentary.
“Richard Avedon: Murals and Portraits” opened Friday May 4th at the Gagosian Gallery in New York. This exhibition, developed in collaboration with the Richard Avedon Foundation, features four of Avedon's immense photographic murals depicting cultural and political icons of the '60s and '70s. These are complemented by a range of similarly themed portraits installed on a visionary spatial composition designed by architect David Adjaye.
