In Flux: Recalibrating the Unknown | 3/21/2024 - 5/12/2024
Exhibition Presented by SFAA at The Museum of Northern California Art (MONCA)
IN-FLUX: recalibrating the unknown will feature works by SFAI alumni, staff, and faculty and be curated by Jeremy P. H. Morgan.
With the 2022 closure of San Francisco Art Institute - a bedrock of contemporary American art education for 150 years - as a backdrop, this exhibition will encourage and invite artists to consider the role of art as a means of revealing possibilities within the current dynamic fusion of social, environmental, economic and epidemiological challenges.
There are two components to the exhibit: artworks by individual artists (object /time based work) and a collaborative site-specific installation to be constructed at MONCA. Artworks and team members for the collaborative project will be selected through a Call for Art issued thru SFAI’s alumni association, San Francisco Artists Alumni (SFAA), to the SFAI community.
EXTENDED Deadline for submissions: Sunday, December 10, 2023, 5pm PST
