Whereupon, a selection of images by New York photographer Allen Frame, from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, in black and white and color. Whereupon expands the premise of his recent book Fever, (color photographs of 1981), to show a broader time period with the same subject: his artist friends in their apartments and lofts and on the streets of New York.

Also included are scenes from theater rehearsals of David Wojnarowicz’s Sounds in the Distance, which Frame co-adapted and co-directed in 1983 and 84. Like photographers from his generation, such as Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin, and Philip-Lorca Di Corcia, Frame uses a highly cinematic style, but in his case, the framing and mise-en-scéne have also been influenced by his forays into theater.
