About the Exhibit
The unique talents of photographer ROSE HARTMAN are celebrated in our latest Art in the Arthouse exhibit. Over the past four decades, Hartman has photographed the rich, the famous and the stylish in some of the most legendary settings of NYC nightlife, from STUDIO 54 to the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala to her pioneering work behind the scenes of 7th Ave.
These iconic and historic images are being shown in conjunction with the acclaimed documentary feature,The Incomparable Rose Hartman, by filmmaker OTIS MASS. Even now, Hartman still doesn’t let much get in the way of her shooting – whether the latest fashion show or provocative art opening. She’s been called a lot of names but “irascible” may best define the woman whose sharp eye and sharper elbows have been penetrating the world of fashion and its personalities, documenting luminaries from RALPH LAUREN to HALSTON.
Hartman’s photography has been widely exhibited in some of the most prestigious art spaces in the country including the Whitney Museum,the Museum of the City of New York, and Dia:Beacon. The artist, who turned eighty this past May, continues to work and live in New York City’s West Village neighborhood.
