6. “REBEL REBEL: REMEMBERING KARLHEINZ WEINBERGER (1921–2006)”
Anna Kustera

Through May 25
The late Karlheinz Weinberger photographed a gang of working-class Swiss teens who shocked their conservative postwar milieu by styling themselves after James Dean and Elvis. This small but spirited tribute pairs his work with shots by Ryan McGinley, Collier Schorr, and Walter Pfeiffer. McGinley and his contemporaries can’t match the weirdness of Weinberger’s niche (pompadoured biker gangs on bucolic Alpine hilltops!), but theirs is a different form of rebellion: taking clothes off instead of donning denim and chains.
