The exhibition features iconic and some, never-before-seen photographs by Hiram Maristany, and six contemporary artists—Nicole Cohen, Selena Kimball, Miguel Luciano, Steven Perez, Saul Williams, and Caroline Woolard—who have selected photographs from Maristany’s personal collection, and used them to create unique new works exhibited in the gallery and in various locations throughout the East Harlem neighborhood over the exhibition’s duration. Hiram Maristany is the colloquial neighborhood “anchor” as he has been documenting his native East Harlem for over 50 years and is coinied the official photographer of the Young Lords Party.
