Another West - curated by Richard Misrach

Opening Thursday September 12th, 5:30-7:30pm

Fraenkel Gallery

Fraenkel Gallery
49 Geary Street, 4th Floor
San Francisco, CA 94108 

Concurrent with Carleton Watkins, Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to present Another West, curated by American photographer Richard Misrach. Comprised of work by eleven established and emerging artists, the exhibition surveys contemporary approaches to the Western landscape, and offers a counterpoint to Watkins’s sublime vision. While Watkins was at times employed by railroad and mining companies that were transforming the land, the artists here use a variety of strategies to reveal the consequences and aftermath of the American concept of Manifest Destiny. Included in the show are works by Johnnie Chatman, Lewis deSoto, Mercedes Dorame, Mishka Henner, Nancy Holt, Zig Jackson, An-My Lê, Meghann Riepenhoff, Ed Ruscha, David Benjamin Sherry and Tabitha Soren. By presenting wide-ranging responses from artists with diverse backgrounds, the show illustrates shifting echoes of established traditions.
