This exhibition, drawn exclusively from the Metropolitan's collection, will feature some forty photographs that reflect the artist's fearless approach to the medium. Levinstein's graphic virtuosity -- seen in raw, expressive gestures and seemingly monumental bodies -- is balanced by his unusual compassion for his offbeat subjects from the demimonde. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=61072 Metropolitan Museum of Art Metropolitan Museum of Art
