Walking into Jack Shainman Gallery in Chelsea, you're greeted by red and black words across the wall "Gordon Parks I Am You Part 2" Stepping into the main room in gallery, you become surrounded by the multi-disciplainery artist's work. On one of the walls you see photos from the March on Washington. The wall next to that are more photos including one Rosa Parks looking both very calm and like she is ready to get to work. In the back room, a short film was looping. Diary of a Harlem Family was a prime example of Gordon Parks's ability to transcend different mediums. Peep some of the work at the gallery below. Don't forget to drop in and see the work for yourself.
Exhibition runs through March 24.
