FraenkelLAB is a new venue for adventurous artwork located at 1632 Market Street. The new space, spearheaded by Frish Brandt and Jeffrey Fraenkel, features 18-foot ceilings and a large glass façade that offers a striking presence on San Francisco’s main thoroughfare.
The wide-ranging works to be presented at FraenkelLAB may be from any era and in any medium, and the exhibitions often will include contemporary and historical artists not currently represented by Fraenkel Gallery. Presentations may encompass video, painting, film screenings, performance, installations, readings, or projections on the FraenkelLAB façade, which can be seen from the street through the evening.
Located in the burgeoning Hayes Valley neighborhood, near Mid-Market and Civic Center, FraenkelLAB is a close neighbor to Zuni Café, the renowned restaurant established in 1979—the same year as Fraenkel Gallery.
As a preview of its new programming, from January 13-17, 2016, FraenkelLAB presented Reanimation (Snow White), 2014, by British artist Oliver Beer. This animated video, on loan from the renowned Kramlich Collection, was projected from inside the gallery and viewable from the street.
