Robert Frank: Books and Films 1947-2016

RoseGallery, 2525 Michigan Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90404

Robert Frank is considered the inventor of street photography. Conceived by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl, this exhibition shows Frank’s work in photos, books and films. The form of presentation is as simple as can be: Frank’s images are printed on sheets of newsprint and hung directly on the wall. In addition, Frank’s films are shown which are so often overshadowed by his photographic work. When the show is over, the images are going to be completely destroyed. When this idea for an exhibition first reached Frank in his small, crooked house in the Canadian village of Mabou, he said: "Cheap, quick, and dirty, that’s how I like it!"
The exhibition’s next venues will be Appenzell, Switzerland and Tokyo, Japan before continuing to visit about 40 additional cities around the globe in 2017. 

Robert Frank: Books and Films 1947–2016 at Bergamot Station is realized by Steidl in conjunction with UCLA College. The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Steve Tisch Foundation and Shoshana and Wayne Blank.

Exhibit runs through April 15, 2016.

Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty presented by regen projects

OCMA, 850 San Clemente Dr, Newport Beach, CA 92660

For over three decades Marilyn Minter has produced lush paintings, photographs, and videos that vividly manifest our culture’s complex and contradictory emotions around the feminine body and beauty. From the oversized paintings of makeup-laden lips and eyes to soiled designer shoes, Minter’s work brings into sharp, critical focus the power of desire. As an artist Minter has always made seductive visual statements that demand our attention while never shirking her equally crucial roles as provocateur, critic, and humorist. Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty features over 25 paintings made between 1976 and 2015, three video works, and several photographs that show Minter’s work in depth.

Exhibit runs through June 10, 2016.
