Allen Frame: Whereupon
September 13, 2022- November 5, 2022


NEW YORK, NY - The Gitterman Gallery is pleased to present Allen Frame: Whereupon. This exhibition is inspired by Allen Frame’s book Fever, which features color photographs of his friends in New York during the 1980s. In this new exhibition, the Gitterman Gallery presents never before seen black and white pictures from that same era in his career. Unposed, these intimate moments with his friends reflect Frame’s spur-of-the-moment style.  

Frames' passion and experiences in film and theater inspired many of his unstaged images. Throughout the 1980’s he adapted and directed the writing of artist David Wojnarowicz, which was presented across three venues in New York and Berlin. In Whereupon two of his friends are depicted in the photograph "Frank and Dan." Seated on a couch, one person appears to be turning toward something, creating a slight blur on the film as he twists, while the other is lighting a cigarette. The viewer is left wondering what will happen next in this unfolding moment. Through his images, Frame explores his relationships with each individual and the emotions they were feeling at the moment. According to Nan Goldin, “[Frame] doesn’t define his relationships with his friends—his subjects—as a series of seized moments of frozen time but as a flow of shared experiences, interactions, and emotions.” Through these images, Frame shows that even though photographs document a moment in time, there is always a before and after. The photographs are just the in-between.
 
Guests can view the work of Allen Frame from September 13, 2022, until November 5, 2022, at the Gitterman Gallery at 3 E 66th Street, New York, NY, 10065. Gallery hours are Tuesday- Saturday, 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

About the Artist
Born in Mississippi in 1951, Allen Frame grew up in the Delta town of Greenville. He is a big fan of Italian filmmakers of the 1950s and 60s, particularly Michelangelo Antonioni, because of his emphasis on mood, atmosphere, and character over plot, exploring psychological states of mind. In his foreign travels, he gathers old photographs, drawings, and paintings to use with his own work to make sprawling wall pieces that have been shown at Pratt Institute in 2018 and in his exhibition, Suddenly, at Gitterman Gallery in 2019. Frame’s contact with younger artists through teaching, curating, and writing have kept him at the center of New York’s photography world for 40 years. He was instrumental in the revival of the Camera Club of New York and transforming it into the cutting-edge Baxter Street. He is an Adjunct Professor of Photography at Pratt Institute (MFA) and also teaches at the School of Visual Arts (BFA), the International Center of Photography in New York, and online for Strudelmedia.
