New: Major Diane Arbus exhibition opening July 12 at The Met Breuer

Part of the inaugural season at The Met Breuer, diane arbus: in the beginning highlights never-before-seen early work of Diane Arbus (1923–71). The exhibition features more than 100 photographs 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 recognized, praised, criticized, and copied the world over.


The exhibition will be featured on the Museum’s website, as well as on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using #dianearbus and #MetBreuer.

Following its presentation at The Met Breuer, diane arbus: in the beginning will travel to SFMOMA (January 21-April 30, 2017).

diane arbus: in the beginning is curated by Jeff L. Rosenheim, Curator in Charge of the Department of Photographs at The Met.
Exhibition design is by Brian Butterfield, Senior Exhibition Designer; graphics are by Anna Rieger, Graphic Designer; and lighting design is by Laura Mroczkowski, Lighting Designer, all of The Met’s Design Department.
