Fotografiska New York will reopen to the public on Wednesday, July 29, 2020, pending Phase Four of New York City’s reopening plan. Beginning with the public opening on the 29th, Fotografiska will be operating on a reduced schedule and will be open Wednesday through Sunday, 11am to 9pm, and closed Monday and Tuesday for cleaning and private tours.
Admission to the museum will be on a timed entry basis, and an overall capacity of 25% will be enforced. Making reservations in advance is recommended to select your preferred time slot. Special pricing will be in effect for the duration of 2020: $24 general admission and $14 for seniors, students and military personnel. The museum will also offer free admission to First Responders and Frontline Healthcare providers through 2020.
The retail shop will be open, re-merchandised for safe and pleasant shopping, and will offer contactless payment options. Limited retail items are on display, and clean and untouched items will be available in the stockroom. Private personal shopping and convenient curbside pickup appointments are available on Tuesdays when the museum is closed to the public and reservations can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The Café on the first floor will also be open for carryout service and sidewalk tables.
Currently, the museum is featuring an online exhibit of ANDY WARHOL PHOTOGRAHS from the Hedges Projects, the leading private collection of photography-based work by Andy Warhol. Over the past fifteen years, Hedges Projects and its founder Jim Hedges have mounted nearly 100 events featuring Andy Warhol’s photos and films in partnership with leading galleries, art fairs, museums, online platforms, retail and hospitality brands, and private collectors. No other group has acquired and sold more Warhol photos in the world. Hedges Projects’ depth of experience and connoisseurship set the standards for education and awareness of Warhol’s photo-based works.
Fotografiska New York is located in the Flatiron district at 281 Park Avenue South at 22nd Street, near Union Square and Madison Square Park, and easily accessible through public transportation.
The Museum is the NYC location of the renowned Stockholm-based destination for the world’s best photography. Founded in 2010, brothers Jan and Per Broman built the concept of Fotografiska on the foundation of photography as a haven for innovation, inclusivity and free expression.
