ArtCurious Podcast creator, Jennifer Dasal discusses Weegee @ Anchorlight

When many think about the presentation of death in modern art, Andy Warhol's Death and Disaster series springs to mind as the epitome of pop exploitation. But Warhol wasn't the first artist to focus on the everyday tragedy of death as a subject to quite this revealing and ruthless extent. That honor might very well belong to someone else: an immigrant photographer working in Manhattan in the 1930s and 1940s. Join Jennifer Dasal, the creator and host of the ArtCurious Podcast, for a discussion about Weegee, the original tabloid photographer whose legacy looms large.
