ALIFE Presents to Host “Clayton Patterson LES Captured”

Must Read


There will be an opening reception for an exhibition featuring documentarian and community activist Clayton Patterson this evening at Alife Presents (7-10pm at 157 Rivington Street). The exhibition, in association with KINZ + TILLOU FINE ART, focuses on Patterson’s 30-year documentation of the Lower East side and it's dramatic transition. The exhibition features select photographs; a digital showcase of Patterson’s Front Door portraits; “The Documentarian”, and a short from the widely acclaimed recent feature-length documentary, Captured. From documenting the 1988 Tompkins Square Park Police Riot—which earned him both jail-time and "Oprah airtime" — to photographing individuals posed in front of his gallery door on Essex Street, Patterson is known as the "eyes of the Lower East Side".
