Jenkins Johnson Gallery, San Francisco, is pleased to present its first solo show by Los Angeles photographer Melanie Pullen, previously represented by Stephen Wirtz Gallery. The exhibition features photographs from her new series Soda POP! that plays with cultural assumptions, taking things typically associated with childhood, such as computer games and soda pop, and putting them in questionable nighttime settings. She heightens this sense of unease by featuring young people marginalized by society, neglected street kids or male prostitutes. Melanie Pullen’s work has been exhibited internationally and has been included in various museum exhibitions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville Florida and Museo Jumex in Mexico City. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, November 5, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The exhibit runs from November 5, 2015 through January 9, 2016.
