Final Week
Stanley Stellar: The Piers


Stanley Stellar: The Piers is the first survey of Stellar’s photographs documenting the Christopher Street piers from the 1970s and 1980s, and the inaugural exhibition at Kapp Kapp’s new gallery space at 86 Walker Street in TriBeCa. Marking Stellar’s third solo exhibition with Kapp Kapp, this body of work examines the brief freedom of The Piers in a New York City that restricted queer life to the cover of night; The Piers, as Stellar witnessed, birthed a gathering place for sunbathing, sex, community, and art.
