Diane Arbus Untitled
Inaugurating their collaboration as co-representatives of The Estate of Diane Arbus, David Zwirner and Fraenkel Gallery are pleased to announce the first complete presentation of Diane Arbus’s Untitled series. The sixty-six images were made at residences for people with developmental disabilities, places Arbus repeatedly returned to for picnics, for dances, and at Halloween between 1969 and 1971, the last years of her life. On view at David Zwirner’s 537 West 20th Street location, the exhibition will include several images that have never before been exhibited.
Please note that there is no photography allowed within the exhibition.

It is a little agonous, a thousand misses but when it all of a sudden works I recognize it is what I wanted without precisely knowing I wanted anything. I am like someone who gets excellent glasses because of a slight defect in eyesight and puts Vaseline on them to make it more like he normally sees.
