JOHN COHEN: THE 10TH STREET ART WORLD 1957-1963
December 2, 2016 – February 11, 2017

John Cohen (b. 1932) was a witness to this extraordinary era of experimentation and transition as well as a participant. After graduating from Yale University School of Art in 1957 (studying under Herbert Matter and Josef Albers), Cohen settled around the corner from Tanager Gallery on East 10th Street, across a courtyard from Willem de Kooning and next door to Robert and Mary Frank. In Jed Perl’s words, Cohen produced a “definitive photographic impression of a hell-bent, headstrong time” as one of a new generation of photographers “mixing gritty stylizations of film noir with a Dadaist playfulness”.
