San Fran - Pier 24

After tonight's Photo LA opening, I'm headed up to San Fran for the weekend. I'm excited to see the Katy Grannan show at Fraenkel, the Cartier-Bresson show at SFMOMA, and to check out the new Pilara Foundation @ Pier 24:

Pier 24 is a contemporary photography space housing the permanent collection of The Pilara Foundation. In addition to hosting rotating exhibitions, the warehouse is focused on addressing and adapting to the constantly evolving concerns of the photographic community. Born out of the desire to reinvent the ways in which photography and photographic ideas are presented, Pier 24 is a distinctive environment where art has the freedom to be seen and thought about differently. Work is not only exhibited but serves as a catalyst to advance the creation, scholarship and understanding of the medium.

Be advised - you have to reserve a time to visit in advance, as only 60 spots are available each day.

(These are the same Hiroshi Sugimoto's that LACMA acquired last year - they're stunning)
