The exhibition features more than 200 photographs and film documenting the team’s history and character, and will debut a new and innovative video installation, NHL in 360°. The installation will give audiences a glimpse of the thrill that hockey players experience during the game—the required skill, brute physicality, and elegance of skating at great speed.

Where:
Albright-Knox Art Gallery
1285 Elmwood Avenue
Buffalo, New York 14222

Background:
Forty is a visual journey rich with memories of long ago. It reveals the passion, beauty, and grit of professional hockey. The speed, physicality, and excitement of the game are captured through the lens of photographers Ron Moscati, Robert Shaver, Bill Wippert, and others. These great sports photographers also give us a behind-the-scenes look at Sabres coaches, staff, arena workers, and fans.

NHL in 360° is a state-of-the-art video installation. An innovative, multimedia experience that enhances the visual journey depicted in the photographs presented in the exhibition. This combination of technology gives a first-hand perspective of how a player sees and hears the game.
