The Picture Show was a photography exhibition celebrating filmmaking, the moviegoing experience, and the enduring influence of cinema on artists. It also paid homage to The Real Estate Show (1980) and The Times Square Show (1981), two large-scale group exhibitions that critiqued the systems of power based on the control of property while embracing the romance of decay. In the spirit of those shows, whose position outside the gallery system was as much a presence in the exhibition as the work itself, The Picture Show took place in the lobby of the Brooklyn Heights Cinema, a historic movie theater slated for demolition to make way for a residential complex.
