In celebration of the 50-year anniversary of the 1964 New York World’s Fair, Onishi Project and Kipton Cronkite are pleased to present World’s Fairs: Lost Utopias, the debut exhibition of Jade Doskow’s groundbreaking 7-year photography project. The exhibition will also include a 1968 triptych by Robert Rauschenberg and a dynamic group show---featuring Alexandra Posen, Greg Haberny, Naomi Reis, and Mark Freedman--- inspired by the cultural zeitgeist that surrounded this event.

Jade Doskow’s large-scale color photographs illustrate utopian iconic architecture and art remaining after the close of 1960’s world’s fairs, and the arbitrary nature of what has been preserved, discarded, or repurposed on these sites. In the cities represented here, New York dominates, in celebration of the 50-year anniversary. The crowning glory that still remains is the New York State Pavilion, an unusual, dynamic carousel-like structure designed by Philip Johnson.
