The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Main Gallery is thrilled to present Praxis of Local Knowledge, a group exhibition featuring four artists, Kimberley Acebo Arteche, Miguel Arzabe, Daniela Rivera, and Trina Michelle Robinson, curated by Carolina Aranibar-Fernandez, SFAC Director of Galleries and Public Programs.

Praxis of Local Knowledge opens on May 16, 2024 at the SFAC Main Gallery in the War Memorial Veterans Building and will be on view through August 17, 2024.

This exhibition explores diverse narratives of movement and memory. Through their artistic practice, each of the four artists in the exhibition delves into their own migration experiences as well as those of their ancestors, seeking reconnection with ancestral traditions and stories through video, printmaking, photography, textiles, painting, and performance.

Today, Harry Dodge’s sculptures combine materials that are found, made, and perverted. Built visibly by hand, they can feel provisional, as though Dodge could modify or disassemble them, at will, with speed, in the event of the world’s collapse or for an exploration of the cosmos. Engaged in magical thinking, they meander down paths of thought that wend their way through uncanny spaces—between distance and entanglement, materiality and aura, visibility and disappearance—in search of novel avenues for relationality.
Make your way down to the SFAC Main Gallery to experience Dodge's works in Conversation 8: Harry Dodge & Alicia McCarthy, on view until April 27, 2024.

Artist tanea lunsford lynx discusses the early African American presence in San Francisco with author Albert Broussard, centering on a 1978 oral history interview between Broussard and Aurelious Alberga, an African American gentleman born in San Francisco in 1884. This conversation is a companion to lynx's culminating exhibition we were here, an interactive creative investigation, which delves into the African American presence in San Francisco during the late 1800s and early 1900s, with a particular focus on the 1906 earthquake. It is on view on the 3rd Floor of the Main Library and in the African American Center through March 1, 2024.

Don't miss out on your final chance to check out The Ink of Identity: Rereading Afghanistan, an exhibition presenting works from Gazelle Samizay during her time as an Artist In Residence at the SFPL.
The Ink of Identity explores the complexities of Afghan identity and the impact of Western-authored literature on the understanding of Afghan history and culture, with a particular focus on Afghan American perspectives. In a library archive predominantly dominated by non-Afghan voices, this exhibition seeks to reestablish the presence and perspectives of Afghans within the archival space. It strives to challenge preconceived notions and reshape the understanding of Afghanistan, inviting viewers to critically evaluate the discourse on Afghanistan, while reimagining the archive.

3️⃣ days until the close of Transcending Physicality: The Essence of Place. The last day for the exhibition will be this Saturday, December 16.
Tapestry of Remembrance harkens to a bygone life in Iran, eternalizing memories through visual and physical means of recollection and creation. When the pandemic forced our human contact to the virtual world, Kiana Honarmand was painfully reminded of her familiarity with those methods of communication. This series embodies her experience as an Iranian immigrant. While being separated by thousands of miles and facing challenging visa restrictions, life became fractured into snapshots of virtual celebrations and farewells to people and places she may never see again. The intentional deconstruction and reconstruction process of the photographs reflects self-realization in the complex nature of identity as an artist, a woman of color, and an immigrant in these uncertain times. Cut by hand and woven together, the photographs create new images as an attempt to visually remember an earlier life that is fading from memory and only exists as fragments frozen in time.

We're in our final week of the Transcending Physicality exhibition curated by the brilliant Minoosh Zomorodinia! Learn about the various artworks capturing places beyond their physical boundaries.
Lorena Molina’s collection of photographs, created between 2016 and 2022, explores themes of ecologies, spatial inequalities, land, displacement, and forced migration. She uses recurring symbols like corn, gloomy landscapes, and raspberries to evoke emotions tied to home and belonging. Molina also reflects on violent land histories and the challenges of maintaining personal gardens due to limited land access.

FIELD is a bio-art project operating at the intersections of sculpture, performance, bioethics, and fraught arenas of urban space. The project considers the cultivated lawns in contemporary cities to explore how our conceptions of nature are shaped by colonial narratives. Sculptures are made from waste lawn-clippings that Supermrin boils, washes, and cooks in their kitchen to create a translucent, biodegradable bioplastic, akin to a vegan leather. The resulting artworks articulate an emergent, grotesque, plant-based perspective in a posthuman future rewilded by grass. Through FIELD the artist reflects on their own immigrant identity, alienation, and anxiety in the face of climate change.

Counter-Landscape is a series of drawings informed by the boundaries that separate and divide space: the house, the garden, and the nation—these are some of the enclosures that define self and other, inclusion and exclusion, access and belonging. This body of work is informed by the architectural floor plans of historical Iranian Gardens and the way space has been organized and manufactured within their walls, manifesting an ideal place for rest and pleasure.

This exhibition grounds into an archival experience and recollection of a larger-than-life story told by Aurelious Alberga (1884-1988) about his experience and survival of San Francisco’s 1906 Earthquake and fires. Interviewed by Albert Broussard in 1976 as part of a larger oral history project organized by the Friends of the Public Library and the SF African American Historical and Cultural Society, Alberga's story affirms in lunsford lynx's words:

For , the column represents the ladder, the mounting of which is an act of ceremonial or ritual significance. The vertical line in its core unites time and experience; the shoulders of the past are holding the present and together they lead to the future. Climbing the ladder is the act of crossing a threshold, a transformative experience filled with uncertainty and akin to immigration. In this state, she sees limitations, but also moments of magic, where everything becomes possible.
Transcending Physicality: The Essence of Place will be on view until Saturday, December 16 (12-5). See you all soon!

Gallery hours Wednesday-Saturday (12-5pm) until December 16.
𝘒𝘢𝘪-𝘏𝘢𝘪: 塑 𝘗𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘢 explores The Great Pacific Garbage Patch which contains approximately 80,000 tons of plastic over a 1.6 million-square-kilometer region of ocean linking East Asia to Hawai‘i. Linking these geographies and the deities they have worshiped—from Mazu, goddess of seafarers lost in the ocean; to Haumea, who birthed the Hawaiian islands and is continuously reborn in her offspring—塑 𝘗𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘢 realizes a Goddexx formed from the need to remediate microplastics from the ocean. She continually gives birth to new children and is reborn each time within them, in order to restore the ocean to its natural state—her offspring linking all shores. As plastics threaten our ocean health and all species in the ocean, 塑 𝘗𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘢 is a response to cleansing our ancestral waters. In the Kumulipo, a pre-Darwinian Kānaka Maoli creation story, all creatures are spawned from the ocean in a lineage that connects to us as Kānaka/humans on land. This Goddexx hails a return to the waters, rebirthing new elements of renewal, delivering a new lineage of creation to cleanse our oceans, bridging Oceania and East Asia.

The window of time to view Transcending Physicality: The Essence of Place is coming down to only 2 weeks!
Ebti’s work often involves repetition, using it to explore time’s passage and change. In 𝘚𝘵𝘶𝘥𝘪𝘰 14 𝘞𝘪𝘯𝘥𝘰𝘸𝘴, Ebti took photographs of her studio window every day during her graduate fellowship at the Headlands Center for the Arts, revealing different times of day, seasons, and studio set-ups. In her work, Ebti uses the imagery of windows as portals bridging inside and outside worlds. For this installation, the multiple windows symbolize portals within portals, allowing one to inhabit multiple times, spaces, and perceptions at once.
