Mitch Epstein: Recreation
For five decades, Mitch Epstein has taken the American scene as his subject. His iconic images of the nation at leisure in a pre-selfie, pre-digital era will be on view at Yancey Richardson through April 8, 2023. Titled “Recreation,” the exhibition portrays American celebrations, rituals, competitions, travel and other pursuits from the 1973 to 1988. With a wry and subtle wit, Epstein presents a late 20th century America seeking fun and relaxation in ways that are compelling, joyful, and sometimes questionable.
Yancey Richardson Gallery, 525 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10011
