January 14: Gallery Preview "Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg"

Please join New York University’s Grey Art Gallery for a preview of its new exhibit, "Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg." The exhibit, which will be on display from January 15-April 6, 2013, is the first major New York exhibition of Ginsberg’s photographs—spontaneous, uninhibited snapshots which capture the poet and his contemporaries and celebrate “the sacredness of the moment” through image and text.

The presentation at the Grey Art Gallery will be supplemented by original manuscripts, typewritten poems, correspondence, drawings, and sketches produced by Ginsberg and the individuals he photographed, including literary luminaries such as William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, and Jack Kerouac.
