Show Dates: April 18th – May 10th
Curators: Tanya Gayer and Micah Wood for SFiCA as part of BREAKOUT!
Opening Reception: April 18th 6 – 9 p.m.
Full Disclosure showcases artists from the MFA graduate programs of both the San Francisco Art Institute and California College of the Arts as part of a collaboration project, entitled SFiCA. SFiCA’s mission is to pool resources and provide as many opportunities for dialogue, exhibition, and participation as possible to the graduate students of both schools. A natural and necessary coupling, SFiCA’s programs foster a culture of collaboration between artists, curators, designers and writers within the larger Bay Area arts community. The structure of SFiCA’s first event is entitled BREAKOUT. It is similar to a music festival with different events happening on several ‘stages’, including galleries and artist-run spaces throughout San Francisco and Oakland. BREAKOUT focuses on specific areas of interest under an umbrella theme of institutional critique and collaboration between the two schools, while also highlighting key concerns of current art practices across programs.
One of the many exhibitions occurring during the season of BREAKOUT, Full Disclosure unites artists who explore discourses of text and image by appropriating and manipulating the frameworks of typography, signage, advertisements, and books. This exhibition aims to analyze contemporary visual culture by uncovering the process of seeing language and internalizing it in order to confront ideologies of feminism, identity, consumerism, and race. Full Disclosure will exhibit works on paper, sculpture, installations, and spoken word to encourage the viewer to experience aesthetic renderings in place of textual structures to communicate how our generation is seeing the world in a new way.
