April 20th – June 3rd, 2017
Steven Kasher Gallery is honored to be the first gallery to take on exclusive worldwide representation of Martha Cooper. Our exhibition features over 30 new editions of her legendary street art photographs. Also featured are new editions of 1970s and 1980s black and white photographs from her books New York State of Mind, Street Play and Tokyo Tattoo. Over four decades, Cooper has explored creativity as seen on the streets of New York and abroad, documenting DIY culture and how it shapes our understanding of “what is art?” Cooper has chronicled street art from its earliest days and has created some of the most iconic and well-known images of this global phenomenon. The show also includes Cooper’s recent environmental portraits of contemporary street artists at work.
