Katy Grannan at Salon 94 Freemans April 1st, 2011 - May 14th, 2011
Posted 5/8/11

Salon 94 Freemans is the perfect setting in which to view Katy Grannan’s latest series of photographs, Boulevard. Located down a dark and narrow graffiti-filled dead end in the lower east side, the gallery, much like the people photographed by Grannan, exists on the fringes – an environment that makes the already hyper-realistic portraits of eccentric city dwellers all the more three dimensional.

As Charles Baudelaire wrote in “The Painter of Mode... [more]

“They Knew What They Wanted” invokes something in-between a hit-man’s overture and a ‘50s girl-group’s jukebox breakup. But instead the phrase serves as the title of an exhibition that spans four commercial galleries in San Francisco: Altman Siegel, John Berggruen, Fraenkel, and Ratio 3.
