F raenkel Gallery is pleased to announce our first solo exhibition of the wor k of Alec Soth. On view from February 5 &ndash\; April 4\, 2015\, Alec Soth: Songbook will feature approximately 20 new and never-before-seen photographs.

\n

Celebrated for his haun ting and influential portraits and landscapes in such acclaimed books as Sleeping by the Mi ssissippi\, Broken Manual\, and NIAGARA\, Alec Soth has recently turned h is lens toward community life in the country. From 2012 to 2014 Soth travel ed 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 obso lescent role of community newspaper reporter. From upstate New York to Sili con Valley\, he attended hundreds of meetings\, dances\, festivals and fami ly gatherings.

\n

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

\n

Al ec Soth (b. 1969) is based in Minneapolis\, Minnesota. His work has been pr esented at numerous museums\, including solo exhibitions at the Jeu de Paum e\, Paris\; Fotomuseum Winterthur\, Switzerland\; and the Walker Art Center \, Minneapolis. Among his many publications are Dog Days\, Bogotá \;\; The Last Days of W\; Fashion Magazine\; and the LBM Dispatch< /em> series\, with writer Brad Zellar.

\n

Soth has been represented by Fraenkel Gallery since May 2013. In conjunct ion with his exhibition at Fraenkel Gallery\, photographs from Songbook will be presented concurrently at Sean Kelly\, New York\, and Weinste in Gallery\, Minneapolis. To accompany the exhibitions\, Mack Books in Lond on has published the hardcover book Alec Soth: Songbook\, featurin g 75 tritone plates.

\n

There will be a book signing with the artist at the opening reception for the exhibition\, on Thursday\, February 5\, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. As a complement to the exh ibition\, Alec Soth will post new cameraphone photos on Fraenkel Gallery&rs quo\;s Instagram feed (@fraenkelgallery).

An exhibition of portraits made in the 1930s by photographer Ze&rsquo\;ev Aleksandrowicz (b. 1905\, Krakow\; d. 1992\, Tel Aviv). \ ;After his death\, his family discovered his life&rsquo\;s work&mdash\;over 15\,000 negatives. \;These images show their subjects in two distinct cultural contexts&mdash\;in the streets of Krakó\;w and in distant Pa lestine. In turn\, the photographs become the starting point for telling st ories about the relationship between these two worlds\, full of contrasts a nd contradictions.

Opening Reception
Thursday\, January 15\, 6-8pm

Artist Talk with Freddy Chandra\, Desiré\;e Holman and Ranu Mukher jee
Saturday\, February 21\, 2pm
Kala Gallery\, Berkeley

Kala Art Institute is excited to present an artist talk with Freddy Chan dra\, Desiré\;e Holman and Ranu Mukherjee\, featuring in our current exhibition\, Seeing Time - Time Traveller. This event is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Freddy Chandra &rsquo\;s work consists of site-specific installations and multi-panel wall compositions. Each installation is an immersive environment constructed as a place that encourages sensory understanding of physical space and tempor al duration. His compositions suggest a contingency in the rhythmic act of marking space and shifts that occur in our experience of time. Chandra comp leted his undergraduate studies in Architecture and Art Practice from the U niversity of California at Berkeley\, and obtained his MFA in Studio Art fr om Mills College in Oakland. He is an Adjunct Faculty at Mills College\, an d has previously been a Summer Session Lecturer at UC Berkeley. He is a rec ipient of a 2009 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant. He has also previously received a Kala Art Institute Fellowship\, a Project Sp ace Residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts\, and a residency at Dje rassi Resident Artists Program.

Desiré\;e Holman&rsquo\;s multi-sensory work positions theatrical tools like costumes or props\, in s ettings that illuminate ideas of identity\, knowledge\, and the complexitie s of the human psyche. Her new work Sophist explores everything spacy inclu ding astrology\, aliens\, auras\, harmonic convergence\, mysticism\, occult ism\, animal magnetism and other spiritual pseudo-sciences. In this new bod y of work\, Holman creates harmony between the real and fiction\, the ratio nal and instinct\, and the past and future. Holman holds a Masters degree f rom the University of California at Berkeley. She was awarded a San Francis co Modern Museum of Art SECA award in 2008 and in 2007 the Artadia: The Fun d for Art and Dialogue award. Solo exhibitions of her work include the Hamm er Museum in Los Angeles and the Berkeley Art Museum&rsquo\;s MATRIX progra m.http://www. desireeholman.com/ \;

Ranu Mukherjee&rsquo\;s hybrid fil ms\, textiles\, works on paper and performed projects explore the construct ion of culture and probe ways that contemporary life is shaped by creolizat ion and nomadism. She actively collects her source material or nomadic arch ive from the public\, and composes her work with this material engaging vie wers through a culturally hybrid and visibly crafted aesthetic. Mukherjee r eceived an MFA in painting from the Royal College of Art\, London and a BFA in painting and film from the Massachusetts College of Art. Mukherjee's wo rk has been exhibited and screened internationally in New Delhi\, Jakmel\, London\, Los Angeles\, Vancouver\, Berlin\, Turin\, Belfast\, Capetown and Budapest. She is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris. \;http://www.ranumukh erjee.com/
