Must Read

ARTS_WATCH_02

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".
