    About The Work

    This photograph features an image of Elvis Presley at his last ever concert in New York City on June 9, 1972. Depicting the music legend with his arms, clad in a white cape, outstretched like an angel, the filmstrip bursts into a flame of red light, seemingly foreshadowing Presley's descent into addiction, and eventual death in 1977.

    Elvis Presley, Madison Square Garden, New York, June 9, 1972. Last New York Concert was created for the Art Affair: Chinatown 2010, which benefited the Guggenheim Museum's Young Collectors Council Acquisitions Fund. Featuring works by Lizzi Bougatsos and Jonas Mekas, the Art Affair celebrated two generations of contemporary artists who work in many media including film, photography, collage, and installation.

    The sale of this work will benefit the Young Collectors Council. Over the past ten years the Young Collectors Council has raised funds to purchase more than 120 works of art for the Guggenheim's permanent collection. The YCC and its Acquisitions Committee is the only group of young professionals in New York City that has made a lasting commitment to support emerging contemporary artists and to expand the collection of a major, internationally recognized, museum.
