diane arbus: in the beginning

Met Breuer, New York

NOW CLOSED

As part of the inaugural season at The Met Breuer, ‘diane arbus: in the beginning’ will open on July 12, featuring more than 100 photographs that together will redefine one of the most influential and provocative artists of the 20th century. This landmark exhibition will highlight never-before-seen early work of Diane Arbus (1923–71), focusing on the first seven years of her career, from 1956 to 1962—the period in which she developed the idiosyncratic style and approach for which she has been recognised, praised, criticised, and copied the world over.
