Behind the Curtain: Barbara Kasten @ Jessica Silverman Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 16, 2013
On view until January 26 is Barbara Kasten's Behind the Curtain at Jessica Silverman Gallery in San Francisco. These photographs depict beautiful abstractions of space, light, form, and color that are presented in an unusual gallery arrangement that is very low-lit, itself a worthy subject for one of Kasten's photographs. Definitely worth a visit if you can catch it before the last day.
