Exhibitions with Artistic (and Political) Punch

Edward talks about current exhibitions at Bergamot Station with welcome artistic and even political surprises. 

24 August, by Edward Goldman

I stopped by Bergamot Station last week to check out a few exhibitions at various galleries and spent –– to my surprise –– more time there than I had initially intended. So let me take you on a short tour.

ROSEGALLERY has an unusual exhibition, Collectors' Favorites, which is comprised of over 70 photographs culled from private collections of members of the Photographic Arts Council – Los Angeles. This exhibition offers not only a rare chance to see works by such masters as Robert Frank, Irving Penn, Imogen Cunningham, and Edward Weston, but it also provides insights into the intriguing, and sometimes peculiar, preferences and choices made by these private collectors.

The exhibition is closing on September 3, but this coming Saturday, August 27, ROSEGALLERY will host a conversation between these LA photography collectors and Virginia Heckert, curator at the Getty Museum. This event is scheduled to start at 11:30am and is open to the public.
