The Big House
PETER HUJAR AT LA CIENEGA
Dries Van Noten is excited to present the work of photographer Peter Hujar at La Cienega, in collaboration with Marc Selwyn Fine Art Gallery.
The exhibition reflects on many of the key moments, places and personalities in Hujar’s extraordinary life – from portraits of Diana Vreeland, Divine, David Wojnarowicz and Susan Sontag to his more experimental compositions and still lifes. Each piece exemplifies the signature intimacy and emotional charge that characterize Hujar’s body of work.
Peter Hujar (1934 - 1987) has been described as one of America's most important and subversive photographers. Best known for his striking portraiture, his body of work also includes landscapes, nudes and street scenes. Many of his subjects were well-known in their own right, including painters, performers and writers. A 'quintessentially New York photographer', his work was and remains widely respected by artists and has influenced creatives across a wide range of disciplines.
