GUN

RICHARD SPEER

134 NW 8th Ave.
 
The title of this show says it all: GUN. Each photograph features a gun in a different context. Some of the images are iconic, such as Bob Jackson’s capturing of the moment Jack Ruby shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald. Others are less familiar but no less disturbing—case in point: Elliott Erwitt’s image of a young boy grinning as he holds a toy gun to his temple. The show feels more like a museum exhibition than a gallery show and represents a new level of sophistication in Hartman’s ever-evolving programming. Through March 31.
