50th anniversary of 1967’s “New Documents”

#tbt in honor of the 50th anniversary of 1967’s New Documents. This modestly scaled exhibition, featuring work by three (then) young and relatively unknown photographers named Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand, had a lasting influence on modern photography. As curator John Szarkowski explained in his introduction to the exhibition, the three represented a new generation of photographers with markedly different aims than those of their hortatory predecessors of the 1930s and 1940s: they had “redirected the technique and aesthetic of documentary photography to more personal ends. Their aim has been not to reform life but to know it". The exhibition established all three photographers as important voices in American art; their achievements continue to encourage more nuanced understandings of the medium. In celebration of the 50th anniversary, the Museum is publishing Arbus, Friedlander, Winogrand: New Documents, 1967 by curator Sarah Meister, who will also introduce a public conversation between artists Max Kozloff, Tod Papageorge, and Martha Rosler next Monday, February 27th.

Choose life.
Choose a job.
Choose a career.
Choose a family,
Choose a fucking big television
Choose washing machines, cars,
Compact disc players, and electrical tin openers.
Choose good health, low cholesterol
And dental insurance.
Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments.
Choose a starter home.
Choose your friends.
Choose leisure wear and matching luggage.
Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase
In a range of fucking fabrics.
Choose DIY and wondering who you
Are on a Sunday morning.
Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing
Sprit-crushing ga me shows
Stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth.
Choose rotting away at the end of it all,
Pishing you last in a miserable home
Nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish,
Fucked-up brats
You have spawned to replace yourself.
Choose your future. Choose life.

The Origin of "What's its mission" (How Did This Get Made Podcast, episode #124 "Hackers," Nov 27, 2015)
  • JASON: June, your animosity--not animosity--but your legitimate fears of technology are compelling.
  • PAUL: June, tell Jason what happened when I brought home BB-8.
  • JASON: Oh? You brought home BB-8? The robot?
  • PAUL: The robot from "Star Wars"--
  • JUNE: First of all, I didn't know what the fuck it was! You just brought it home. It arrived!
  • JASON: You didn't know what it was? You say that in a way that, even to look at it, you wouldn't conceptually understand what it was fundamentally.
  • JUNE: I HOPED that it was some sort of character or figurine.
  • JASON: As if he brought home Gizmo the Gremlin!
  • PAUL: All I know is, he placed it on our floor and it started ROAMING ABOUT and I didn't like it.
  • JASON: You didn't like it?
  • PAUL: What was the first question you asked.
  • JUNE: Oh, I don't remember.
  • PAUL: You said, "What's its mission?"
  • JASON: *laughing for prolonged period* What's its mission? WHAT'S ITS MISSION?!
  • PAUL: What's its mission.
  • JUNE: What is it here for?
  • JASON: Paul, did you go to the book [ie the booklet that comes with the robot] and be like, "Oh boy let me look at this"?
  • PAUL: No, I did the worst thing. Which was like, "Don't worry about it. It will monitor our house."
  • JASON: *cackling* It's just here to take pictures!!
  • JUNE: I think I have a healthy skepticism.
  • PAUL: And then you told me immediately, as I took it off the floor and what'd you say to me?
  • JUNE: I don't remember.
  • PAUL: You said, get that the fuck out of her or I'm going to throw it in the garbage. It is now hidden from June. BB-8 cannot be out in public with June.

“I think Shelley, in those early years– well actually, her whole stay on the show– I’d be hard-pressed to think of a more gifted comedic actress on television.  She rode a thin line between caricature and a real person, and rode it perfectly.  I never believed that she wasn’t that character… that she was just playing a part.  I believed that that was an actual human being there.  And man, she could wring a joke out of a straight line.  She could get a laugh out of a glance.  She was a joy to work with.  And smart.  Smart.”
