After closing her physical space, Gallery Carte Blanche on Valencia St. in San Francisco last year, Gwen Lafage took a little break before focusing her energy on her online presence, www.gallerycarteblanche.com. With the strong desire to discover new photography and uncover new talents, she launched a call for Art at the end of 2013. The submissions came from all around the world--from her Bay Area doorstep to her native Europe, from Michigan to Indonesia. Amazing stories inflated her inbox, and the urge to show them to the world--not only online but on a wall, became inevitable. The idea of the first Carte Blanche Pop-up exhibition was born.
Together with Patrick Aguilar, co-owner of San Francisco publisher Owl and Tiger Books, they went through the overwhelming quantity of submitted projects to try to make sense of what emerging, contemporary photographers have to tell us.
These are stories of hope and expectation; fictional narratives questioning our relationship to the reality we live in. They explore the interaction with their surroundings, wherever they go, wherever they live. They investigate the subjectivity of storytelling and the ambiguity of truth. They show us the beauty and the ugliness of our humanity, finding sense where there isn’t any, playing with our perceptions. You know what I’m seeing? Maybe you do, maybe you don’t. Come and see for yourselves. The exhibition is up for a very limited time. Here are your 3 chances: - Opening party with food, wine and fun, Friday April 18th, 5-9pm - Opening hours with cookies and love, Friday 18th and Saturday 19th, 2-5pm - On appointment with a big smile, from Sunday 20th to Monday 28th
Don’t miss it! This is a unique opportunity to see an amazing international photography exhibition and rediscover the Gallery Carte Blanche collection that you love!
