Lee Friedlander Framed by Joel Coen
If you’re a fan of Lee Friedlander’s photography and Joel Coen’s films, this is the show for you. There’s no overarching theme for the exhibition, except for Coen’s proclivity for odd and unusual compositions. That should be good enough, but you’ll also get a snapshot of American life and a mini-retrospective of Friedlander’s six-decade career. Actor Frances McDormand, who’s also Coen’s wife, had a hand in selecting the 45 photos on view. The show is exhibited simultaneously at San Francisco’s Fraenkel Gallery.
531 West 24th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan
