GJEP’s ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery will host an Allentown First Friday reception on November 6th for Orin Langelle’s newest photo exhibit, The End of the Game–The Last Word From Paradise, Revisted The reception will take place from 6-9 p.m. at the ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery (148 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14201)
With the support of the Peter Beard Studio, ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery presents this exhibition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of artist Peter Beard’s book, The End of the Game–The Last Word from Paradise. Beard’s controversial views on ecology are just as relevant today as they were then.
The exhibit features photos by Orin Langelle documenting the art scene in Manhattan in the 1970s. The photos showcase Beard and the people that surrounded him (including Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Andy Warhol, Truman Capote), prior to and during Beard’s one-person show at the International Center of Photography in Manhattan in 1977, and his 40th birthday party at Studio 54 in 1978.
Bear’d groundbreaking ICP exhibit, based on his book, documented the rapid decline of elephants and other wildlife in Africa caused by destructive conservation models that led to overpopulation and starvation.
The exhibit includes advance copies of the 50th Anniversary edition of Beard’s The End of the Game.
Wine and Hors D’oeuvres will be served. Free and open to the public.
Exhibit runs through Friday December 17th, when it will close with a Solstice Party from 6-9 p.m.
