FraenkelLAB, opened in April 2016 and spearheaded by Frish Brandt and Jeffrey Fraenkel, is Fraenkel Gallery’s venue for adventurous artwork from any era and in any medium. Located at 1632 Market Street, FraenkelLAB 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.
