February 5th, San Francisco: Opening Reception & Book Signing “Alec Soth: Songbook”

Alec Soth: Songbook
Reception: Thursday, February 5, 2015, 5:30-7:30 pm

“Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to announce our first solo exhibition of the work of Alec Soth. On view from February 5 – April 4, 2015, Alec Soth: Songbook will feature approximately 20 new and never-before-seen photographs.

Celebrated for his haunting and influential portraits and landscapes in such acclaimed books as Sleeping by the Mississippi, Broken Manual, and NIAGARA, Alec Soth has recently turned his lens toward community life in the country. From 2012 to 2014 Soth traveled the United States looking for signs of social life in our era of virtual social networks. To aid in his search, Soth assumed the increasingly obsolescent role of community newspaper reporter. From upstate New York to Silicon Valley, he attended hundreds of meetings, dances, festivals and family gatherings.

With Songbook, Soth has stripped these pictures of their news context in order to highlight the longing for connection at their root. Fragmentary, funny, and sad, Songbook is a lyrical depiction of the tension between American individualism and the ongoing desire to be united.”

The exhibition will be on view February 5 – April 4, 2015.
The accompanying publication, Songbook, was published by MACK, January 2015.

Lecture by Kalup Linzy

Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 7:00 pm
Free and open to the public. No RSVP – Seating is on a first-come, first-served.

“Brooklyn based Kalup Linzy is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes videos, performances, and music. His satirical narratives – inspired by soap operas, telenovelas and Hollywood melodramas – deal with race, sexuality, gender, class, and the art world. Serving as writer, director, cinematographer, editor, and actor, he performs (often in drag) a series of memorable, defiant characters; he has been described as the heir to artists and performers as diverse as Cindy Sherman, RuPaul and John Waters. Simultaneously salacious and poignant, Linzy’s works fuse dramatic intensity with melodramatic irony and gut-busting comedy. In summer 2010, he appeared on the long running ABC soap opera General Hospital alongside James Franco in a storyline that incorporated performance art. Linzy has released three full length albums and two EPs. His latest project, Romantic Loner (2012/13), includes an album, a feature film, two short films, live performances and an ongoing series of collages.”

September 29th, San Fracisco: Film Screening: “Fred Lyon – Living Through the Lens”

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
Film Screening, Fred Lyon – Living Through the Lens
Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 2:00 pm
Tickets: Regular $10 | YBCA Member, Student, Senior, Teacher $8 | YBCA You FREE

“This world premiere is an intimate exposé of San Francisco photographer Fred Lyon, who is still going strong after seven decades behind the camera. Though Lyon is one of America’s leading advertising, interior design, architectural, food, wine, and travel photographers, he is best known locally for his mood-soaked street photography of San Francisco in the ’40s and ’50s. Lyon photographed the transformation of his treasured hometown into a center for optimism, prosperity, and growth after World War II, a truly extraordinary documentation of the City in black-and-white. Fred Lyon: Living Through the Lens tells the story of this prolific, innovative artist. (2013, 52 min, digital)”

Director Michael House and Fred Lyon will be present for the screening.

Artist Talks: Sage Sohier with Frank Yamrus

Tickets available at door: $10 general | $5 students

Sage Sohier, About Face: Facial Paralysis: “Many of us find fault with our faces: vanity, aging and insecurities all take their toll on our self-image, and few of us achieve our notions of perfection; but, we have the luxury of taking for granted our ability to show emotion through control of our facial expressions. more»

Frank Yamrus: “In 2007, and after a short respite from taking pictures, I returned to my camera as a way to process my upcoming 50th birthday. My work always had an autobiographical persuasion but in this series I placed myself in the crosshairs of my own camera. Created over six years between my 47th and 53rd birthdays, I used life’s “big” moments— marriage, fatherhood and the loss of loved ones— as cornerstones to understanding my life’s decision but relied on the smaller moments— working in the yard or enjoying cotton candy— to help present a more congruous life. more»

Artist Talk by Sharon Harper
Introductory Presentation by Christina Seely
Friday, May 10, 2013 at 7:30 pm
Tickets: $10 General | $5 Students (available at the door)

Sharon Harper’s work jettisons this idea of the photograph as a seamless window to reality and replaces it with a magic mirror, a transformative surface that is capable of making the invisible visible and the intangible tactile. Her photographs, which often involve the sky as a test bed of human perception, have less to do with what we see than what we don’t see or, perhaps more accurately, what we want to see or try to see, but can’t.”
—Stephen Pinson, Curator of Photography at the New York Public Library

Christina Seely is a photographer and educator based in the San Francisco Bay area. She currently teaches at California College of the Arts in the photography, interdisciplinary and graduate programs.
