Private Tour & Curatorial Presentation of The Herb Ritts Exhibit
RSVP for the New England Chapter’s private and exclusive tour of this important photography show with James Leighton, Curatorial Research Associate at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Herb Ritts (1952–2002) was a leading American fashion photographer of the 1980s and 1990s, known for his beautifully printed, formally bold, and sensual black-and-white images of supermodels such as Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. This new exhibition of the photographer’s work revisits the artist, whose groundbreaking 1996 retrospective, “Herb Ritts: WORK,” remains one of the most popular exhibitions in MFA history. The Ritts Foundation has given the Museum a print of every image in the 1996 exhibition, and in 2007, supported the MFA’s first gallery dedicated solely to photography. The Museum’s Herb Ritts and Clementine Brown galleries host the new exhibition, featuring an array of Ritts’s photographs celebrating the human body and embracing the carefree California lifestyle.
The Museum is free Wednesday evenings so please enter through either public entrance and meet us in the Ritts exhibition by 5:45pm. Tour to begin at 6pm in the gallery.
Join us at Taste, the Museum’s cafe and wine bar, for networking, discussion and drinks after the event. Cash bar.
