Naked City is being held in coordination with two other Weegee exhibitions: Weegee: Hollywood at MoCA and Murder is My Business at the ICP. This is an exceptional time to engage the artist's oeuvre. Steven Kasher Gallery presents 125 prints from the artists favorite subjects, including song and dance, drink, party, spectacle, circus, love and sex, crime and disaster, celebrity and citizen, and the self.

All of our primal urges, hidden truths, and secret fascinations are revealed in Weegee's work. The honest and direct tone is striking and immediate. Our curiosity is satisfied completely and purely. Artist and viewer gaze with sincerity- never up or down regardless the subject or circumstance. Dated yet timeless, candid yet encouraged, basic yet invested with layer- Weegee's work continues to hold power. Exhibitions are not to miss, especially the broad-reaching display at Steven Kasher Gallery, which beyond silver prints offers viewers audio and film elements.
