86 Delancey is getting its rocks off.
Recent arrival Rox Gallery is putting the final touches on its next exhibit called “Who Shot Natalie White?” Those floor-to-ceiling windows are now adorned with some soft-core action, a full-frontal female nude and a steamy makeout sesh. But will the photos arouse … the ire of local decency police?
Possible public outcry notwithstanding, “Who Shot Natalie White” dives into the experience of Ms. White, a West Virginian model who became muse for many a lensman. Her beauty at age seventeen allegedly attracted the eye of photographer Peter Beard, and from there others followed. So the story goes.
This exhibit features Noel Arikian, Joseph Arthur, Peter Beard, Anna Bloda, Eneas Capalbo, Will Cotton, Michael DiDonna, Michael Dweck, Andrew Einhorn, Jan Frank, Paul Forsman, Elliot Goldstein, Anthony Haden Guest, Jeffrey Hagerman, Michael Hoerner, Ryan Keeley, Sean Lennon, Raphael Mazzucco, Joe Heaps Nelson, Max Snow, Spencer Tunick, Elizabeth Waugh, Darius Yektai, Olivier Zahm and Natalie White herself. Phew!
“Who Shot Natalie White” opens tonight at 6pm. It’ll be on display until May 12.
