      Peter Hujar – Speed of life

      The life and art of Peter Hujar (1934–1987) are rooted in downtown New York. Private by nature, combative in manner, well read, and widely connected, Hujar inhabited a world of avant-garde dance, music, art, and drag performance. His career paralleled the public unfolding of gay life between the Stonewall uprising in 1969 and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s. This retrospective exhibition presents a selection of 140 photographs that trace the journey of this complex artist over the course of three decades.

Life in the City

The photography and life of Peter Hujar (1934-1987) was deeply tied to New York. Based in a loft studio in the East Village, the artist captured striking images of the built landscape whilst celebrating the lives of individuals in crisp black-and-white portraits. Subjects included Susan Sontag, David Wojnarowicz, Fran Lebowitz, Sheryl Sutton and Gary Indiana – capturing the nuances of individuality and the creative spirit of the 20th century.


A solo show at Jeu de Paume, Paris, titled Speed of Life, shines a light on this work, highlighting the photographer’s engagement with the city and culture. The gallery notes: “Hujar inhabited a world of avant-garde dance, music, art, and drag performance. His mature career paralleled the public unfolding of gay life between the Stonewall uprising in 1969 and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s.”

The show opens 15 October. Find out more here.

Peter Hujar

Master Class
14 September–19 October 2019


Opening Reception
Sep 14, 2019
10 AM – 6 PM

For the public opening of 540 West 25th Street on Saturday, September 14, 2019, Pace/MacGill will present Peter Hujar Master Class. Featuring a selection of Hujar’s black-and-white portraits acquired by Richard Avedon in the 1970s, the exhibition examines the photographer’s idiomatic approach to portraiture that treated each photograph as a stand-alone object, capable of evoking complex emotions and expressions. The influence of Avedon’s acclaimed Master Class, a weekly seminar taught by Avedon and art director Marvin Israel at Avedon’s New York City studio and in which Hujar was enrolled in 1967, will also be examined through scholarly research. The Master Class included visiting speakers such as Diane Arbus and Lucas Samaras, and opened doors for a number of young photographers.

Avedon and Hujar remained friends following the workshop’s close and, over time, Avedon acquired the eight superb prints on view, each of which deftly captures Hujar’s avant-garde circle with penetrating sensitivity and psychological depth. The exhibition will also include Hujar’s four-part work made during the Master Class, ‘Nude Self-Portrait Series’ #1, #2, #3, #4 (1967).
