  • Changing exhibition with each Photography Museum that is kanji's I think. I think it is very interesting if you are interested to exhibit at. Photo taken from the usual, well who might be interesting.

  • This was a very interesting spot to visit. The exhibitions were very emotionally charged with horror, heartbreak, humor and more. I love the entrance area with the computer where you can browse decades of photos. Very interesting.
  • Nice space over two floors and Maman coffee bar on the first floor. Experience seems to depend on the current exhibition (Public, Private, Secret goes until January 2017), as this takes up most (if not all?) of the museum. Public, Private, Secret was thought-provoking even I didn't always "get" it. I came on a Thursday night, when entry is pay what you wish, because it's near my apartment and seemed like something new and interesting to check out. Don't really feel the need to go back unless they have an exhibition that's particularly compelling to me. Note: Never been to their Midtown location. *Pay what you wish on Thursdays starting at 6 PM. Last entry to the galleries is 45 minutes prior to close (9 PM on Thursday, 6 PM other days, closed on Monday).
  • Awesome! Excellent affordable contemporary art space. Got a discounted combo ticket with the New Museum. I thought the gallery flow was a bit awkward, but maybe because of the volume of people. I wouldn't go here with my parents, but I enjoyed going myself! Looking forward to the next visit.
  • It's not a place you go to stare at and be dazzled by visually-pleasing, well-crafted photos, although some of them can be described that way. The photo installations (and some videos) offer insights on popular culture and socio-political issues, past and present. I found myself enjoying the commentary as much as the photos. Pay-as-you-wish every Thursday evening.
  • Fantastic exhibit, nice bright cafe open to the public. Online classes are excellent.
