“From the earliest conversations about recreating The Newsstand at The Museum of Modern Art in Ocean of Images: New Photography 2015, artist Lele Saveri was insistent that the physical work alone was not enough. The community around The Newsstand—the artists, publishers, performers, illustrators, and photographers that produced work, staffed the booth, bought work, and participated in the events—was the real center of the space.”
This week is your chance to visit The Newsstand, which was originally housed in the Lorimer Street/Metropolitan Avenue subway station in Brooklyn. The exhibition Ocean of Images: New Photography 2015 closes Sunday.
