In today’s hyperconnected social world, images of others have become a ubiquitous part of everyday life, but what is it about other people’s parties that intrigues us so much? Is it idle curiosity or something more? This exhibition, featuring photography from artists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Larry Fink, Danny Lyon, Mary Ellen Mark, and Andy Warhol, calls attention to the highs and lows of our most social occasions, investigating the human impulse to capture party moments through photography and our desire to live vicariously through images of others.

Funding has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Location: David Filderman Gallery
