Austria: Helen Levitt exhibition in Vienna

12 October 2018 - 27 January 2019

Helen Levitt "Enfants masqués" New-York, 1940

In the fall of 2018, the Albertina museum in Vienna will hold a large scale retrospective of the work of Helen Levitt (1913-2009), with 130 of her pieces.

Self-taught photographer after dabbling with painting, Helen Levitt starts taking pictures of lower-class neighborhoods like East Harlem, in New York City, in the 30s. While she captures everyday life, her most well-known photographs are of children chalk drawings. In 1943, she’s featured in a first solo exhibition at the MoMA.

Trailblazer in color photography, she’s the recipient of two grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, in 1959 and 1960, that allows her to dive deeper in her work. (Unfortunately those artworks have been stolen). In 1974, she is the first ever color-photographer exhibited at the MoMA.
