PAINTING TO THE STAR
New York, Sept. 24 – Nov. 8, 2020.
Padre Gallery in New York is proud to present the solo show “Painting to the Star”, featuring photographs by Javier Porto. Curated by Pablo Villazan. Rober Mapplethorps studio in Manhattan New York at 24 Bond Street was the setting where in 1984 Javier Porto took the photographs that make up the show “Painting to the Star”, a set of images that allow us to witness a historical moment. We can see the main protagonists of the cultural and artistic movement of NY in the 1980s working on a common project, the cover of interview magazine.
