From Musée Magazine’s “Art Out” feature:
Regardless of whether her subject is a stranger on the Bowery, Grace Jones at a club opening, or a child in Bushwick putting on roller skates, Meisler maintains a perspective and voice as a photographer who does not shy away from the absurd and joyful. As the artist puts it, she has a ‘queer, quirky eye.’
A public school teacher for 31 years, Meisler only revealed her vast photographic archive upon retiring in 2010. This exhibition offers a peek into the archive, including vintage and contemporary prints surveying the artist’s entire collection of images.
