Last week I was in the Bay Area. Saw some good exhibits in Oakland, at the Museum of California and some of the newer galleries around 23rd and 25th. In San Francisco on one block of Geary, there were three beautiful shows, first at #49, Katy Grannan’s new work, The 99 at Fraenkel, and upstairs at Haines, John Chiara’s photographs, de • tached. Across the street at Paule Anglim at #19, I was able to have a preview of Carrie Mae Weems new show Subject and Witness while it was being installed. This beautiful show runs through April 18th.
