SFAI’s Maya Stovall Live performance at 1pm... 🍭😎

sfaiofficial

“‘Theorem, no.1’ is a meditation on the fervor, grit, and craving of the day-to-day urban experience. ‘Theorem, no.1’ unfolds in the streets and sidewalks — spaces fraught and celebrated — where that life takes place. Spinning a score that the artist refers to as “The Anti-Pop Up” or “The Anti-Flash Mob,” Theorem, no.1 gathers artists and collaborators to weigh the distances between neighbors, public spaces, and art worlds.” SEE MAYA STOVALL’S PERFORMANCE THIS FRIDAY --> bit.ly/theorem-no-1 // #sfaicurrent #performanceart

GRADUATE LECTURE SERIES⁣ TODAY! ⁣ ⁣ Betti-Sue Hertz: Aesthetics and Ecological Activism in Chinese Contemporary Art⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Chinese conceptual artists forging new strategies at the intersection of aesthetics and ecological activism are exposing urgent dilemmas affecting the earth’s health as a foundation for humanity’s own survival. Working against the background of a rapidly changing landscape, they express environmental consciousness through engaging with contemporary theories of post-nature and historical notions of nature as a space for contemplation. How can art as a cultural endeavor provide meaningful expressions for representing humanity as being inside of nature?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Betti-Sue Hertz is a curator, writer and educator. She is currently developing a public art program for Shishan Park, Suzhou, China; and was curator in residence at HOW Art Museum, Shanghai in 2018. Hertz was director of visual arts, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, (2008-2015) and curator of contemporary art, San Diego Museum of Art (2000-2008). She has been adjunct faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute since 2011; and lecturer at Stanford University and UC Berkeley.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Image: Liu Jiangua, Discard, 2015, (installed at Echigo-Tsumaria Art triennial, Japan); installation, porcelain.

TONIGHT 🚢 7pm ⚓️ Constance Hockaday: Prepare to be Unprepared Prepare to be Unprepared is a cinematic and performative lecture by artist Constance Hockaday. The performance includes a stream of associations exploring how sandy beach survival strategies, homemade boats, linguistic investigations of the word “hope,” normalcy bias, and her own personal anecdotes come together to illustrate the terrifying and liberating ways we make sense of our lives in the age of disaster. Constance Hockaday is a Chilean American who grew up on the Gulf of Mexico. She has created outsider maritime projects since 2006. At age 19, she joined the Floating Neutrinos, a family of wanderers, who sailed around the world in handmade vessels. In 2011, she began creating solo work on the water. From a floating boat hotel off the shores of New York City to a floating peepshow in the San Francisco Bay, her work explores issues of public space, political voice, and belonging.

Friday April 5th @ 430pm 📣 in the Scully Grey Box at our Fort Mason Center campus. Maya Stovall: Under New Ownership (GENERAL THEORY OF HISTORICAL MATERIALIST CRITIQUE remix) In this performance lecture with a live audio score by Todd Stovall, Maya Stovall considers the distinct works on view in Under New Ownership. Demonstrating how and where a research method and an artistic practice can meet, the artists show together how knowledge can be produced via the studio, the street, the interview, and the encounter. Writing too figures here as a central tool, and so Stovall punctuates the event with passages from her forthcoming Liquor Store Theatre book, as well as from a book project co-authored with her brother Josef Cadwell. Cadwell’s meditations range widely across theory and practice, including Stovall’s own, and reference an inside view of the U.S. prison system. #sfai #mayastovall #fortmasoncenterforartsandculture #artistlecture

#Repost @diego_rivera_gallery ・・・ Don’t miss today’s opening in the Diego! History/Genealogy/Archaeology Curated by Delaina Engberg, Brandon Jauregui & Kate Laster History tends to be thought of in terms of progress, in the perspective of a completion that provides meaning for it. History is thought of as transitory, as historical itself, as a linear progression that, within its very structure, alludes to its inevitable ending. These artists challenge the idea that history has just been a long succession of progress where we have used knowledge to make things better. Instead, they look at history as a fluxus network of information. The plethora of historical content we have access to enables individuals to jump through time and selves seamlessly; history begins functioning more like constructed memory than objective truth.

✨⚡️ Going Through ⚡️OPENING RECEPTION: TODAY 5-7pm 🗣Artist talk at 5:30pm 👁ON VIEW: 25th-30th The exhibition’s realistic and abstract fine art present different approaches and emotions to encourage the audiences to interact and reflect on identity as reflected in public and personal interactions. We, as artists, want to share our personal experiences to find our own identity through our creativity and different mediums; Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Film, and Photography. The artists coming from all different cities and also countries experienced divided cultures emotionally and also physically. Some artists are immigrants and trying to accept new culture or try to exclude some part of it. Some artists try to adopt others’ thoughts in society as LGBTQ. Some artists are finding their own personality, characteristic and existence in society. The expectation of this exhibition is to represent what are the behind of scenes of artists and to share the world view from different perspectives, from ours.

OPENING @ 5pm in the @diego_rivera_gallery !!! Dunes & Avenues: The Richmond District Curated by: @swaineb & @a.mackenz Before there were the avenues, the Richmond District was a vast stretch of sand dunes. From that sediment grew a quiet residential neighborhood with rolling hills that led to the sea. Surrounded on three sides by ocean and park, the Richmond stands as its own peninsula within the peninsula of the city. In an ever changing San Francisco, The Richmond remains as one of the last vestiges of the city untouched by encroaching gentrification, though it is slowly being affected too. Because it exists in the small northwest corner of the city, many people don’t give it a second thought. It is a long bus ride in and out, and often even locals don’t want to make the trek. For those of us who live in the Richmond, however, this long bus ride is one we can count on to take us home- to safety and security. This show is a reflection of the warmth we feel towards our home. The Richmond district has and continues to nurture its inhabitants, providing solitude, comfort, and a place of belonging. The muted colors of the landscape embrace the neighborhood within a shroud of fog, beckoning us towards the ocean, the park, the natural spaces that surround us. In this way it is a haven, away from the oppressive nature of a city, and closer to the essence of the coastline. While also a reflection of love towards our home, this show is an act of preservation of an authentic San Francisco, one anchored to the landscape, which is being pushed to the very edges of the city by a new wave of capital consumption and greed.

ART AS PROTEST — In a world of narrowing perspectives and under constant attack from fake news and rhetorical hyperbole, art provides a means of communication that has the ability to push through societal barriers and expose the stark reality. We must preserve this right and address controversial subject matter with an honesty of intention that only art can achieve. Leveraging visual and installation art, this collective expression presents the underbelly of human nature and tackles socio-political issues of feminism, gender, race, and the environment.

Situational: The Body in Contemporary Painting Saturday, February 9, 2019 | 10am–6pm Osher Lecture Hall . “During times of social and political strife, individual liberty and cultural ethics are contested through issues of the body. In that respect, a robust interest in figurative painting has intensified over the past few years alongside artist’s renewed purpose in painting people. Situational: The Body in Contemporary Painting’ is a one-day symposium that will address what constitutes a contemporary body, how pressing issues are being translated rhetorically through the body, and the diverse artistic vantage points situated within figurative painting today.” —Brett Reichman, Symposium Chair #figurativepainting #contemporaryart #sfaicurrent #sfaifaculty #painting #SFAIsymposium #paintingsymposium #jennysaville

ON VIEW FEB 3-9th Three artists of different approaches and ambiguities come together through fragmentation of the body. Each coming from their own personhood to draw upon refusals of traditional representations of the body; within society and the artworld. The artist’s use of color, fragmentation, and scale are all conscious tools to analyze and remove the generative gaze and objectification that comes with employing the body in art. Utilizing sculpture, painting, exhaustive performance, and photography, three artists aspire to create a vulnerable space for contemplation and confrontation. #sfaicurrent #exhibition #artschool

Exactly 50 years ago, Ruth-Marion Baruch and Pirkle Jones' photographic essay BLACK PANTHERS, 1968 was shown at San Francisco's DeYoung Museum. The work is still pertinent today and will serve as a platform to discuss issues of documentary photography, social activism, and how the Black Liberation Movement of the 1960s in many ways manifests itself in the social context of today. Vanguard Revisited: Poetic Politics and Black Futures is a living archive of political possibilities. Artists Kija Lucas, Tosha Stimage, 5/5 Collective, and Chris Martin present a range of creative and radical resistance. Working in concert with the archival photographs, this exhibition of contemporary work assembles a new understanding of the Black political imagination. On view now at the Walter and McBean Galleries. #tbt #blackpanthers #exhibition #contemporaryart #photography
