Approaching the Unreal
APA SF Curator's Voice Exhibition
extended through October 25, 2014

In recent years, quite possibly the last decade, we have been fascinated with the playful and evocative narratives that fine art photographers and digital art image-makers have been telling. From the gallerist perspective, it fascinates us to observe art collectors as they navigate through the gallery; spending time with a particular artwork, and almost become spellbound while questioning the reality of it all. We find this interlude from reality provides a new light for visitors to re-evaluate their suspension of disbelief.

Approaching the Unreal, is a juried exhibition and curated by gallery director, Bryan Yedinak, and gallery manager, Danny Sanchez.

Approaching the Unreal exhibition: September 4-27, 2014

Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir
November 6 through January 31, 2015

Modernbook Gallery is pleased to wrap up our 2014 exhibition schedule with, Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir. Through his brilliant eye for light, composition, and his patience for the ‘decisive moment,’ Mr. Ho created striking images that continue to resonate through the decades. Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir revisits this lost era with a combination of never before seen images and introduces new-montaged photographs.

Complementing the exhibition will be Mr. Ho's new book by modernbook editions, Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir containing 101 images. This book will complete the trilogy Mr. Ho began with Hong Kong Yesterday and The Living Theatre.

Reception with Fan Ho, Thursday, November 6, 5:30-7:30pm
