Amy Arbus: On The Street 1980 – 1990
February 28 - April 19, 2014
Leica Gallery, 670 Broadway, New York
 Artist reception February 27 from 6-8pm

"Arbus's style is so casual it feels effortless, and every picture has wit, soul, and graphic snap. Roaming the East and West Village streets, she found and recorded many of the era's most idiosyncratic icons, including....Madonna, whose stained camel-hair coat and scarily prescient bowling bag still look like the very definition of downtown chic. Arbus clearly understands the power of clothes to express personality, so the best of her work is a seamless blend of fashion and portraiture." –Vince Aletti for The Village Voice
