The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter
Curated by Katy Grannan

June 4, 2015 – August 22, 2015

Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to announce The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, curated by Katy Grannan. This group exhibition will present photographs and other objects by 18 artists, all of whom are being shown at the gallery for the first time.

The title of the exhibition refers to Carson McCullers’ novel, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, and the poem that inspired it, The Lonely Hunter, written by Fiona MacLeod (aka William Sharp). The works selected for the exhibition resonate with pathos, obsession, and vulnerability, and speak to a fundamental source of artistic inspiration: the heart’s private longing.

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter will feature works by: David AlekhuogieZak ArctanderElizabeth BickMatthew ConnorsDru DonovanJ.W. Fisher, Curran HatlebergFumi IshinoDwight MackintoshChristopher MinerBryson RandHeather RasmussenJudith ScottDavid M. SteinRay VickersDidier WilliamAlice Wong, and Ying Ge Zhou.

The artists’ ages and backgrounds vary widely; likewise, the works presented in the exhibition will encompass a wide range of media, including contemporary color and black-and-white photography, figurative and abstract painting, line drawing, mixed-media works, artists’ books, video, and sculpture made with found materials.
