Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to present The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand, an exhibition inspired by Geoff Dyer's new book of the same title, published by University of Texas of Press. Touching on themes and subjects that Winogrand explored over the course of his celebrated career, the images offer what Dyer claims for Winogrand's photography: an education in seeing. The exhibition will be held at 49 Geary Street, 4th floor, from February 21 to March 16, 2019.
The exhibition largely emphasizes lesser-known works from the 1960s and 1970s: New York street scenes as well as photographs from sports events, zoos, national parks, beaches, airports and other places where Winogrand explored the chaotic and surreal social interactions that make up everyday life.
Winogrand, who died in 1984, was exhibited as part of Fraenkel Gallery's second season in 1980. The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand will be the gallery's 12th Winogrand exhibition, each of which has emphasized a different aspect of the artist whom John Szarkowski of the Museum of Modern Art called "the central photographer of his generation." The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand precedes the broadcast premier of Sasha Waters Freyer's award-winning documentary Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable, which will be shown on PBS's American Masters in April.
