Exhibition: Raghubir Singh at the Met Breuer
Over the course of his four-decade career, Indian photographer Raghubir Singh (1942–1999) engineered a style of color street photography that stood, in his own words, “on the Ganges side of modernism.” A version of that quote lends its name to this retrospective, which features 85 of Singh’s vivid photographs. The show traces the entirety of Singh’s career, from his early days as a photojournalist to his last works, from the late 1990s, many of which were unpublished. Singh’s photographs will be paired with works by his colleagues and friends, as well as examples of Indian court paintings that inspired his use of bold hues.
Met Breuer, 945 Madison Avenue, 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
