Male From the Collection of Vince Aletti

Text by Collier Schorr.

From the collection of the renowned photography critic and curator Vince Aletti, Malecollects photographs, paintings and artifacts on the theme of the malebody, amassed over the last 30 years. Aletti's collection was firstpresented at New York's White Columns gallery in February 2008, and isa wild blend of anonymous and iconic art and photography from thenineteenth century to the present, a visual cacophony thatdistinguishes Aletti's taste and appetite as a collector. Among theknown photographers in the collection are Alexandr Rodchenko, NanGoldin, Marco Breuer, Aaron Siskind, Gary Schneider, Peter Hujar, BillJacobson, McDermott and McGough, Weegee, George Platt Lynes, LarryClark, Danny Lyon and Malick Sidibe. Alongside reproductions, agatefold page displays the works as they are installed in Aletti's NewYork home, and Collier Schorr contributes an essay recording the impact the collection has had on her own work and view of photography.


Schorrwrites: Art history, written mainly by men, has shied away from the male figure... Aletti's collection… creates a Cosmos: at once amicrocosm of gay male life, a personal fantasy, and the infinite,enveloping World.
