Juxtaposing nudes and seascapes with architectural interiors, The Hollywood Suites, Steve Kahn’s enigmatic series of photographs made between 1974 and 1978, is on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery.

The series will be the subject of an upcoming exhibition at the de Young Museum in San Francisco opening on September 29, 2018. Kahn is part of a generation of photographers that emerged in Los Angeles in the 1970s, including Robert Heinecken and Lewis Baltz, who deconstructed the medium with a conceptual and abstract approach. An opening reception with the artist will be held on Thursday, February 1, from 6-8 p.m.

The Hollywood Suites has been seen in solo exhibitions on the West Coast and in Europe and included in group exhibitions such as The Altered Photograph at P.S. 1 in New York in 1979. The exhibition at Howard Greenberg Gallery represents the first time the series will be seen in a solo show in New York, and is the artist’s first exhibition with the Gallery. A book on the series was published by Nazraeli Press in 2014.
