At 6.30 p.m. on Friday, 17 February, 2017, Spazio Damiani will be inaugurating the Fink on Warhol: New York Photographs of the 1960s exhibition by American photographer Larry Fink. Until 30 April, fifteen black and white photographs illustrating the dialogue between the social and political fervour of New York of the ’60s and the artistic and nihilistic figure of Andy Warhol and exponents of the Factory will be on display.
The photographs showing Andy Warhol and some of the top names from the Factory, including Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, Ingrid Superstar, Susanna Campbell and Gerard Malanga, were taken over a period of three days during the spring of 1966, when Larry Fink was commissioned to produce some pictures for the East Side Review. The shots documenting an America shot through by political and social tensions associated with the struggles for civil rights and the antiwar protest movement, instead cover a longer time span, from 1964 to 1968. The images on display, like the entire photographic corpus from which they come, are now coming back to light for the first time.
