Bonni's Best- A Memorial Exhibition for Bonni Benrubi
New York, NY 10001
The Bonni Benrubi Gallery, along with the Benrubi and Powers families, will be celebrating the life of Bonni Benrubi with a special memorial exhibition to be held at the gallery. Bonni, who passed away on Thursday, the 29th of November, after a long battle with cancer, left us with one of the most highly regarded photography galleries and collections in New York. Bonni's Best will include special selections from the private collection of the celebrated dealer, as well as iconic images from the gallery's 25-year history. Please join the family and staff of the gallery on Friday, January 11th, from 6 - 9 for the opening and memorial. The evening will offer a chance to view the work, and celebrate Bonni's life and passion with her friends and family who knew her best. Bonni Benrubi (1953 - 2012) began working with photographs in 1977 at the Daniel Wolf Gallery, where she became director until 1987. Soon after, she began private dealing and opened a public gallery in 1992. She has championed the careers of many contemporary artists including Abelardo Morell, Massimo Vitali and Matthew Pillsbury. She was also deeply involved with American mid-century vintage material and has built extensive collections for many individuals throughout the world. The Bonni Benrubi Gallery continues posthumously today to celebrate and exhibit the vision of this exceptional and beloved presence in the world of photography. Please join us for the opening reception and memorial here at the gallery on the evening of the 11th of January.
