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.
