Howard Greenberg Gallery, 120 Wooster Street, 334-0010
A show of work acquired this past spring from Ginsberg's estate, including drugstore-processed snapshots from the '40s and '50s along with his trademark later prints, each captioned at length in his inimitable scrawl. Here's the Beat generation from the ultimate insider's perspective, with appearances by Kerouac, Corso, Burroughs, and the legendary Neal Cassady.

MATTHIAS VRIENS+ALEXEI HAY
September 8-29
The Project, 427 West 126th Street, 662-8610

LAURENT MILLET
September 12-October 26
Robert Mann Gallery, 210 Eleventh Avenue, 989-7600
As much a sculptor as a photographer, Millet shows small images of his own mysterious found-object constructions, many of them suggesting the fragility of psychic shelter, along with an installation created on the spot.

Bruce Silverstein, 504 West 22nd Street, 627-3930

Roth Horowitz, 160A East 70th Street, 717-9067

Edwynn Houk Gallery, 745 Fifth Avenue, 750-7070

Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue, 535-7710
A major, career-spanning show of portraiture that the catalog describes as "an extended meditation on life, death, art, and identity in the form of a vast collective portrait of America in the second half of the 20th century."

ANTHONY GOICOLEA
October 10-November 9
Rare, 435 West 14th Street, 645-5591
New large-scale photographs made in New Zealand confound expectations by removing the artist and his many clones from the landscape, leaving only fugitive signs of human presence. Plus videos and drawings.

ABELARDO MORELL
October 10-December 7
Bonni Benrubi Gallery, 52 East 76th Street, 517-3766
Morell's fascinating, intimate investigations of the book as object are accompanied by new camera obscura inventions.

Julie Saul Gallery, 535 West 22nd Street, 627-2410
