For The Conservatory’s first exhibition of original art, we partner with Soho’s Staley-Wise Gallery, preeminent specialists in works by Horst, Herb Ritts, Slim Aarons, Arthur Elgort and other masters of fashion photography. Rather than celebrate those creators of beautiful fictions, our inaugural artist is the “brilliant realist,” American paparazzo Ron Galella. Best known for photographing (and feuding with) Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Sean Penn and, no surprise, Donald Trump, Galella shot hundreds of public figures over his five-decade career. You’re sure to recognize a face or two.
