Conversation: David LaChapelle in Conversation with Lyle Rexer at SVA Theater
As part of the “Dear Dave” conversation series at the School of Visual Arts Theater, which brings together an internationally renowned photographer with a critic, curator, writer or artist, David LaChapelle will be in conversation with Lyle Rexer, a New York-based writer and critic, in conjunction with Mr. LaChapelle’s current exhibition, “Earth Laughs in Flowers,” at Fred Torres Collaborations. If you haven’t been to the exhibition to see Mr. LaChapelle’s new large-scale still-lifes composed of flowers and human detritus, head to the gallery before the conversation–they’re in the same neighborhood. Before then, you can check out the slide show. —Rozalia Jovanovic
