Profile

It's always worth dropping into 303 for its meticulously mounted shows by established—yet-still edgy—contemporary American artists. In the film and video genre, there's L.A. hipster (and occasional music video director) Doug Aitken, known for his use of multiple screens and dramatic, indie-inspired camerawork. Prankster Rodney Graham is best known for his seamless, Buster Keaton-esque videos. Then there are the daring women painters of 303, from the kittenish, fashion pages-meet-Anna Karenina fantasies of Karen Kilimnik to Inka Essenhigh's eye-popping work, where Francis Bacon and anime collide. Try to drop by when Collier Schorr's photos are on display. Her rough and tough, dramatically lit images of young American wrestlers bring to mind the great divide between the Greco-Roman ideal and the sweaty, acne-ridden reality. The gallery openings tend to be packed, so arrive early and be prepared to stand around outside with the smokers.
