About this Event:

Experience the Times of Bill Cunningham will bring the beloved documentarian’s career and keen eye to life with a range of dynamic experiences  — from a grand staircase where guests’ outfits will be digitally transformed into a one-of-a-kind fashion statement worthy of a Cunningham snap to an ever-changing gallery revealing the surprising links between the sartorial trends captured by Cunningham and today’s latest street styles. 


Unfolding over two stories, 18,000-square-feet, and six distinct spaces, the multi-sensory installation will feature large-scale reproductions of Cunningham’s most iconic photos, video and audio interviews, artifacts like Cunningham’s iconic Biria bicycle and his trademark blue French worker’s jacket, and sounds that capture the energy of New York City’s streets. Along the journey, guests can pose on a simulated city crosswalk where Cunningham took many of his photographs, or take a seat on a bench made of milk crates and a foam mattress; a nod to the photographer’s bed in his Carnegie Hall studio apartment.
