September 6 - October 27 | Hours: Thursday—Saturday 12—5p + by appt

SLATE contemporary is pleased to present Being Seen: a three-person photography exhibition that explores themes of identity, anonymity, privacy, and space. Richard Koci Hernandez has been practicing street photography for decades, favoring low-tech media such as pin-hole cameras, Holgas, and, more recently, the iPhone to create mysterious images of the urban landscape and people on the move.  Barbara Kyne‘s series At the Museum takes the subject of viewers looking at art as its own subject. Sherry Karver‘s work tackles themes of loneliness and alienation in our fast-paced society, the concept of personal identity and the loss of it, and the individual as part of the crowd.

Artist Talk + Tour: September 7 | 6:30 pm during Oakland Art Murmur’s First Friday
