SFAC @ C + M: Self/Guided
The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Galleries, in partnership with SF Camerawork, is pleased to present a new exhibition at C + M Cafe in the War Memorial Veterans Building from September 22, 2017 - January 19, 2018. Self/Guided features photographs from SF Camerawork's Fine Print Program and responds to the SFAC Main Gallery exhibition, An idea of a boundary.
Curated by Marilyn Claes, Self/Guided examines a connection between structural boundaries and self-identity. We build physical structures to contain humans and things, and we form identities to contain ourselves. Through two forms of landscapes — the interior and the exterior — the exhibited works ask the viewer to consider how identities can act as boundaries and how boundaries can act as identities.
Self/Guided features the work of fourteen artists from SF Camerawork's Fine Print Program. Founded in 1974, SF Camerawork's mission is to encourage and support emerging artists to explore new directions and ideas in the photographic arts. The Fine Print Program allows patrons to support SF Camerawork by purchasing a photograph by one of 70 renowned photographers.
Eve Arnold, Johnna Arnold, Kimberly Austin, Tammy Rae Carland, Sarah Christianson, Susannah Hays, Christina Koci Hernandez, Mona Kuhn, Apollonia Morrill, Maggie Preston, Meghann Riepenhoff, Diane Rosenblum, Christina Seely, and Melanie Willhide
