Manhattan – Chelsea
450 W 15th St (bet. Ninth and Tenth Aves.)
Manhattan, NY 10014
This large Chelsea studio and event space (former location of the MTV Video Music Awards after-party) also hosts an art gallery specializing in the work of photographers who document celebrity, fashion and pop culture. Expect exhibitions like Roxanne Lowit's candid backstage images from Dior runway shows or a collection of never-before-seen shots of the Rat Pack—or the occasional break from type, like a show of the work by Japanese Shinto sculptor Shinjo Ito.
