Pier 54 Exhibition ~ a collaboration with High Line Art ~ 27 female artists, one photographer, one historic pier

I spent the summer working with High Line Art to photograph 27 female artists out on the disused – soon to be torn down – Pier 54, in part a response to a 1971 show at the MoMA entitled Pier 18, which included works from 27 male artists and photographed by Harry Shunk and János Kender.
