The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Galleries celebrates the opening of a new, and greatly expanded 3000-square-foot gallery space in the historic War Memorial Veterans Building with three distinct exhibition projects featuring works by thirteen regional artists.

To celebrate the move to this new gallery, the SFAC Galleries will initiate a new annual program called ENTER126, featuring a commissioned, site-specific work in the Gallery entryway. The inaugural ENTER126 installation is Coalescence, a collaborative piece by two dynamic Bay Area creatives: architect Annette Jannotta and media artist Olivia Ting. For Coalescence, Jannotta and Ting will incorporate building materials from the construction of the gallery as well as video footage depicting the renovated Veterans Building, giving a broader context to the transition from past to present.

SFAC Galleries will celebrate the launch of this exciting new program with the opening of the new gallery space on January 22, 2016, coinciding with the opening of two exhibitions, Bring It Home: (Re)Locating Cultural Legacy Through the Body and Do More of What You Love, a solo presentation of works by Susan O’Malley.
