If you like photography (who doesn’t?) then you’ll want to find yourself at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for their new photo installation, The Pictures Generation 1974-1984, running now till August 2, 2009.  Modern photography, little to no entrance fee, bumping into art-loving foreign men…hell yes! Don’t forget: the entrance fee is a “suggested donation,” so you can pay them as little as you like.

This is the first major museum exhibition to focus exclusively on “The Pictures Generation.” Educated in the self-reflexive and critical principles of Minimal and Conceptual art, this tightly knit group of artists brought those lessons to bear on a return to recognizable imagery, exploring how images shape our perceptions of ourselves and the world. Featured are 160 works in all media by thirty artists.
