Amy Arbus

ACP Lecture Series: Amy Arbus

High Museum of Art

Featuring work by: Amy Arbus

Tickets available soon:

Amy Arbus will choose photographs from her own archives and some of her favorite images by the masters, her colleagues and former students to provide a language for people to interpret images in their own way. Her choices will be based on portraits that speak to her because they have a story that needs to be told.

Amy Arbus has published five books, including the award winning “On the Street 1980-1990” and “The Inconvenience of Being Born.” The New Yorker called “The Fourth Wall” her masterpiece. Her most recent, “After Images,” is an homage to modernist paintings by the masters. Arbus' photographs have appeared in over one hundred periodicals around the world, including New York Magazine, The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine. She has taught photographic portraiture at Maine Media Workshops, Anderson Ranch, the Fine Arts Work Center and for twenty-three years at The International Center of Photography. Amy Arbus is represented by The Schoolhouse Gallery in Massachusetts. She has had thirty-eight solo exhibitions worldwide, and her photographs are a part of the collection of The National Theater in Norway, The Morgan Library and Museum, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The New York Public Library, The Museum of Modern Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
