GITTERMAN @ VON LINTEL
February 17, 2023
Gitterman Gallery will present a selection of vintage photographic works in the viewing room of Von Lintel Gallery from February 17th through 19th as a part of Photo Forward Los Angeles (produced by Photographic Arts Council LA). In addition we will be participating in the special event sponsored by FRIEZE Saturday, February 18th from 5–8 pm.
Gitterman and Von Lintel have had a long collegial relationship and share representation of several artists. We have a similar passion for both art historical and contemporary work and take great pleasure in seeing the dialogue between art from different periods and how each adds in their own distinct manner.
The selection features work from the early 1930s to the early 1970s by Laure Albin-Guillot, Chargesheimer, Pierre Cordier, and Jean-Pierre Sudre. Each artist used alternative photographic process to create works of abstraction.
Gitterman Gallery will also present a selection of figurative photographic work including early work by Allen Frame from when he and many of his artist friends lived in downtown New York in the late 1970s and 80s. They are intimately observed unposed scenes that were influenced by his love of film and theater.
In addition, we will show a rare group of color silver dye bleach (Cibachrome) prints from 1979 of Mary Ellen Mark’s Falkland Road series. As a champion of people on the edges of society, Mark sought to bring to light the injustices toward sex workers on this street in Bombay.
