Paige Powell went to New York City from Portland, Oregon in 1980, and quickly became a fixture in the downtown art scene, a close confidante of Andy Warhol and a member of his inner circle, including the likes of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, whom she dated.
Published by Dashwood and brought to life by Gucci, PAIGE POWELL is a four-volume slipcased hardcover set highlighting three different aspects of Powell's work: Beulah Land, her life in New York and the visual diary art installation that Powell created in 1984 at an art space in the East Village; Animals, a theme close to Powell's heart as a lifelong animal activist; Artists Eating, documenting the dinner parties and social gatherings that were part of Powell's life in 1980s New York while working for Interview magazine; plus Paige Powell, an accompanying book about the photographer and her life.
