Liz Deschenes and Sol LeWitt at Fraenkel Gallery

Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, CA is pleased to present simultaneous exhibitions of three important wall drawings by Sol LeWitt, with new photographs by SVA faculty and artist Liz Deschenes. Deschenes’s recent work, loosely inspired by LeWitt, will appear with the wall drawings in the gallery’s Geary Street space.

Installed in the same galleries, Liz Deschenes’s new imageless photographs use photographic means to explore conceptual possibilities cracked open by LeWitt. Her photograms are a direct record of atmospheric conditions during the process of their production: light, humidity, and the outside temperature, among other factors, determine the surface of the final works.

The exhibition will run from September 7 through October 28th 2017. For more information please click here.
