The vintage photographs in this exhibition are from the famed collection “Street Cops” photographed in the late 1970s by award-winning fine arts and documentary photographer Jill Freedman. A petite powerhouse, Freedman quite literally inserted herself into active crime scenes in order to take these gritty photos at a time when New York City was just as gritty. Freedman prowled the streets of Manhattan with her camera during the age of the ‘70s blackout and subsequent rioting and looting, when New York was allegedly “broke” and drugs, crime, and homelessness were rampant.

This exhibition marks the launch of the third volume of Helguera’s “Artoons”, published by Jorge Pinto Books. This event is sponsored by the Department of Art and Music who invite you to celebrate the exhibition with an opening reception on Wednesday, February 9th, 2011 from 5 – 8pm.
“But enough about me—now let’s talk about my work”: Artoons by Pablo Helguera offers an ironic, insightful, and humorous look at the contemporary art world, a prestigious and insulated sphere ruled by highly idiosyncratic systems of power and influence.
