This event has ended.

"The Hold Up" is a solo exhibition spanning over two decades of the artist’s photographic work. Geographically and temporally diverse, the exhibition is comprised of several discrete yet overlapping groups of photographs (combinations of color and black & white prints), two slide shows, and a film. They are united by themes such as subculture, violence, displacement, criminality, and social/familial bonding as they occur on all extremes of the economic spectrum. It has been said of one of her major photographic influences, Robert Frank, that he desired “to create what he deemed ‘a more sustained form of expression’ by rejecting the single, static image and embracing the narrative potential of photographic sequences.” (Robert Frank, Pace/MacGill Gallery, 2009) In Graubard’s work, images involving posing soldiers, crime scenes, the mafia, are rendered more pervasive by their adjacency to images of war and injury, hospitals and orphanages.
