The Contemporary Jewish Museum: Photographs by Allen Ginsberg - A History of the Beat Movement.
Review by RWM: How nice to see these photographs by Allen Ginsberg who as revealed here was not only one of the chroniclers of The Beats and it's most famous poet, but also maybe it's most influential photographer. One will see some of many of the famous images that they have seen before, except now collected in one place. Ginsberg as showcased here was in the tradition of other poets, but at a time of experimentation and outrage. He found a second family with those categorized as The Beats. He gives these rebels and sometimes outrageous folks some of the attention and recognition they deserve. Some of the most influential minds and artists of his generation on display.
Comment by AB: Fascinating and intimate photographs by Allen Ginsberg transport us back to the formative years of the Beat Era and of counterculture movements in general. Some are vintage, others are later printings original images, substantially hand-annotated by Ginsberg himself, thereby providing additional insight into circumstances contemporaneous with the visuals. Definitely worth seeing... and reading.

Comment by AB: The highlight of this survey of art by Brooke Westfall is a wall full of surprisingly accurate ink and watercolor renditions of miscellaneous inconsequential documents such as store receipts, pay stubs, certificates, and handwritten notes.
