Massimo Giachetti’s City as Stage Exhibit is Now Online
MAS is pleased to present the latest exhibition in the Doris C. and Alan J. Freedman Digital Gallery: City as Stage, a collection of work by photographer Massimo Giachetti.
With a unique eye for the interplay between character, background, and foreground, Giachetti’s photographs capture New Yorkers interacting with the public realm in a way that unmistakably recalls actors upon a theatrical stage. From behind the lens, Giachetti captures the art and spirit that imbues even mundane moments, when played out in extraordinary spaces. As a collection, the works remind us of the millions of stories quietly unfolding every day on street corners, train platforms, plazas, and parks across the city.
Relaunched in 2020 in a new digital format, the Doris C. and Alan J. Freedman Gallery highlights the work of artists based in or inspired by New York City, whose work deepens our understanding of the relationship between people and the built environment.
