Fotografiska just expanded to New York, opening a new destination for photography in the Flatiron District
Featuring five distinct solo exhibitions of photography by Ellen von Unwerth, Tawny Chatmon, Adi Nes, Helene Schmitz, and a partnership with TIME featuring the work of Anastasia Taylor-Lind.
Founded in 2010 in Stockholm, Fotografiska is guided by the principle of inspiring a more conscious world through photography. They’ve has built a safe haven of innovation, inclusivity and self expression by combining art, culturally eclectic event programming, great dining experiences, and curated retail into one destination.
Their exhibition model is unique and features a broad range of rotating photography shows, from easily accessible to hardcore conceptual, shot by grand masters and emerging talent alike. Fotografiska shows several rotating exhibitions at once, which are developed directly with photographers, galleries, estates and private collectors. Rising stars are displayed next to icons, and styles range across abstract, landscape, portrait, documentary and more. All that matters is the communicative power of the image. The presentation of photography includes over 200 exhibitions to date, such as David LaChapelle, Annie Leibovitz, Albert Watson, Sally Mann, Cooper & Gorfer, Ren Hang, and Christian Tagliavini.
In addition to the three exhibition floors, Fotografiska New York will be home to the restaurant Verōnika, brought to life by STARR Restaurants. Verōnika is a nod to Veronica, the patron saint of photography, and the interior is inspired by the moody qualities of the medium in its earliest forms as well as the tone, texture and timbre of the ”grand cafés” that populated Europe before the turn of the 20th century. Helmed by executive chef Robert Aikens, the menu draws inspiration from northern France, Austria and Eastern Europe, in an eco-conscious manner that prioritizes seasonality and sustainability.
The 4,200 m2 six-floor historic landmark building is located at 281 Park Avenue South.FotografiskaFotografiska New York
