Sebastião Salgado's "Kuwait" Opens At Sundaram Tagore Gallery (New York) March 30, 2017 (Salgado Will Be At The Opening)
Sebastião Salgado's Kuwait runs at Sundaram Tagore Gallery (547 West 27th St., New York) from March 30 to April 20, 2017. There will be a reception, with the artist, from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 30. Salgado will be signing copies of two of his books--Kuwait: A Desert on Fire (Taschen, 2016) and Genesis (Taschen, 2013).
It isn't hyperbole to write that Salgado is one of a handful of living photographers who can be called "the greatest living photographer." His work is somewhere between fine art and journalism; they are beautiful and often horrifying.
The Kuwait series are photographs taken near the end of the Iraq War, when the desert was full of burning oil wells. These images first appeared in The New York Times Magazine back in 1991 and won the Oskar Barnack Award. The award recognizes work that highlights the relationship between humans and the environment. Anyone aware in 1991 remembers the hellish images from the oil fields after Saddam Hussein's troops set them alight.
In conjunction with this exhibit Sundaram Tagore opens select images from Salgado's Genesis series at their other location--1100 Madison Ave. beginning April 1, 2017.
Also? If you haven't seen the documentary, Salt of the Earth? Go get a copy.

Tompkins is a pioneering feminist artist known for her depictions of sexuality, desire and the female body. The pieces to be shown have never been shown in New York. These include the artist's large, Fuck Paintings, a new installation of Pussy Paintings and new works on paper. Her work often uses porno images as a starting point.
These are works that makes you look at images and subjects (oddly) seen as taboo. This is a must-see exhibit.
