Helen Levitt: In the Street

Jan. 27, 2017 10:00 a.m. - April 16, 2017, 5:00 p.m.

The Milwaukee Art Museum’s Helen Levitt: In the Street celebrates the honest, humorous and inventive work of prolific documentary photographer Helen Levitt. One of the best-known street photographers of the 20th century, Levitt observed people of every age, race and class without attempting to impose social commentary. The artist worked in New York City from the 1930s through the 1990s, capturing fresh, unstudied views of everyday life in the city’s urban neighborhoods. Concurrently on view in the Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts is James Nares: Street and Pendulum. The contemporary English artist employs innovative technology to turn a lens on everyday life and explore movement, time and rhythm. In both of these unique exhibitions, the streets of New York City inspired two very different ways of looking at the bustle and drama of life in the big city.
