Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg opened last weekend at the National Gallery in Washington DC and will be up through September 6. The coverage so far has been very positive. We’ll start off with Clair O’Neill’s NPR Story then over to Art Daily, and then, of course, The Daily Beast. The The Washington Post features a 13-image slide-show with a not-so-sweet review by Philip Kennicott, who seems to be asking: “if Allen wasn’t as good a photographer as Robert Frank, should we take him seriously?”
