Launch is on September 29th and will continue through October 20th.
Iconic photographer and chronicler Allan Tannenbaum in concurrence with Renaissance Woman, Anahid De Camillis and her company Deny LLC, will be reintroducing a collection of his work as a complete exhibition before the exhibition travels on to Italy and France. Mr. Tannenbaum’s real and surreal New York of the 1970’s will dress the walls of the ingénue scene for art: Pop Art Bar & Restaurant, Stone Bar, & Studio 3. This three-in-one location provides an ideal background for pictures defining that decade. Bonus: ample space for all to see, take in and, perchance, emulate the vibe and energy that were captured in Tannenbaum’s photography, even if to some small degree.
Perhaps best known for his exclusive opportunity to snap beautiful photos of John Lennon and Yoko Ono during their most private moments, this celebrated photographer is also identified by his youthful and exuberant capturing of practically everything representing the 1970’s era, from marijuana sit-ins in Central Park to the hot nights in Studio 54. His work behind the lens encapsulated those people and places that shaped the stories about New York when it was dangerous, gritty, exciting and sexy: a time before celebrities became obsessively protective of their privacy and the media didn’t have to wait outside to capture a look. He alone gained entry with his cameras and got behind the closed doors of nearly every scene alive with the creativity and lavish nudity of the 70s, and took it upon himself to provide future generations with the proof that once people were real and uninhibited.
Pop Art Bar and Restaurant, Stone Bar and Studio 3 are all located at 345 East 62nd Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenue on September 29th from 6pm to 9pm. Take the N or Q train to Lexington and 59th or the F train to 63rd and 3rd avenue. The exhibit will continue through October 20th every day between the hours of 11am and 7pm.
Anahid De Camillis and Lisa Askenase Konsker present an exhibition of photographs by Allan Tannenbaum from his classic book New York in the 70s. There will be new creative versions of his iconic images seen here for the first time.
