THE NEW YORK
John Lennon: The New York Years, which spans 1971 to 1980, is an extraordinary, intimate portrait of John Lennon through the lens and the pen of one of the people who knew him best-his friend and personal photographer Bob Gruen. From the One to On concert at Madison Square Garden to Lennon's return to New York from his "Lost Weekend," from the birth of Sean Lennon to recording sessions for Lennon's last album, Double Fantasy, the images from their decade of friendship, some of which have never before been seen, fill the galleries of this exhibition.

Studio 54 by Rose Hartman traces the radiant history, social politics, and trailblazing aesthetics of the most iconic nightclub of all time. Behind the velvet rope, partygoers of all backgrounds and lifestyles could come together for nights of music, dazzling lights, and the popular song and dance “The Hustle.”
Anton Corbijn spent a week traveling the Mojave Desert, looking for the perfect location. Over several days in late 1986, the band and Anton traveled the American Southwest in a bus, staying in small hotels along the way. They started in Reno, NV and went through Bodie, Twentynine Palms and all around (and in) Death Valley. Corbjin was struck by the Joshua Trees and told the band of the story of the trees name. Bono liked the origin of the tree’s name and its religious significance (early settlers named the plant after the Old Testament prophet Joshua, as the tree’s stretching branches reminded them of Joshua raising his hands in prayer). The rest is history.
These shots capture the very essence of what going out was, is, and should be, all about. They showed the true democracy of the dance floor where anyone could be a star, as long as they had the right attitude and flair. The images in this show are a document of an incredibly exciting and creative time, not only in music, but also in social, political and fashion history too. All the photographs featured were shot by Bernstein. Manhattan was the epicenter of disco and Bill Bernstein captured it all.
