A famously social and artistically provocative figure at the center of the New York art world from the 1940s through ’60s, Larry Rivers (1923–2002) gravitated towards collaboration. His friendships helped knit together the worlds of poetry, visual art, writing, music, dance, and theater in postwar New York City. This exhibition presents archival materials from the newly acquired Larry Rivers Papers, including correspondence, source material, and photographs.
