4 Artists-Curators/4 Galleries

July 1 - August 21, 2010

Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to announce THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WANTED, a  collaborative exhibition in tour locations. Over the past winter and spring, tour artists were  given free rein to explore the racks, print cabinets, and storage areas of four San Francisco  galleries. From the same pool of works each artist has assembled an installation for one ol  these galleries; Katy Grannan for Fraenkel Gallery, Shannon Ebner for Altman Siegel Gallery, Jordan Kantor for Ratio 3, and Robert Bechtle lor John Berggruen Gallery. Katy Grannan's  installation at Fraenkel Gallery will be on view from 1 July through 21 August 2010.

Katy Grannan's own work in photography examines the desire other subjects to offer  themselves up to the camera lens. The exhibition she has assembled for Fraenkel Gallery  includes the work of painters, sculptors, and photographers such as Robert Adams. Richard  Avedon, Robert Bechtle, Diane Arbus, E.J. Bellocq, Jim Dine, Lee Friedlander, Peter Hujar,  Jordan Kantor, Henri Matisse, Barry McGee, Nathan Oliveira, Richard Misrach, Linda  Ridgway, William Wiley, Garry Winogrand, and several works by unknown photographers.  Grannan lives in Berkeley, California.

Other artists whose work will be on view across the four galleries include Lutz Bacher, Bernd  and Hilla Becher, Alighiero e Boetti, Miriam Bohm, Vija Celmins, Gregory Crewdson, Maureen  Gallace, Charlie Harper, Matt Keegan, Los Carpinteros, Henry Wesset, Tom  McKinley, Richard McLean, Manuel Neri, Trevor Plagen, Mitzi Pederson, Robert  Rauschenberg, Will Rogan.
