Groundbreaking exhibition of photographs by Robert Frank sheds new light on his legendary work, The Americans

Released: August 27, 2014

In 1955 and 1956, Swiss-born photographer Robert Frank (b. 1924) traveled throughout the United States on a Guggenheim Fellowship, photographing ordinary people in their everyday lives. His book The Americans—83 photographs, mostly from those travels, published in 1959—repudiated the bland good cheer of the magazines with an image of the country that was starkly at odds with the official optimism of postwar prosperity. The book became a landmark of photographic history; but Frank soon turned to filmmaking, and the rest of his early photographic career was largely forgotten. An important gr...

"Luciano Ventrone: The Thrill of the Real" to Open at Hollis Taggart Galleries

Released: August 21, 2014

In his upcoming showing at Hollis Taggart Galleries, Luciano Ventrone presents a paradoxical thrill in his paintings.  Luciano Ventrone: The Thrill of the Real (Sept. 4-Oct, 4, 2014) examines the foundation of Ventrone’s skilled technique and his deceptively classic still lifes.  Comprised of twenty paintings, one of the most striking themes is the artist’s uncanny precision.
