6pm – 9:30pm (Auction closes at 9pm)
766 Valencia St. SF, CA (Sidegate)On February 12 the Incline Gallery will host a silent auction of fine art to benefit Flying Under the Radar, an ongoing festival of arts and artists slated to take place in San Francisco and Rio de Janeiro. The auction is the second in a series of Flying Under the Radar events for 2016; on January 7,8, and 9 the Red Poppy Art House kicked off the year with a hugely popular three-night festival of Brazilian music, and now Incline will present this auction to offer significant works by local San Francisco Bay Area artists working in a variety of media.
Throughout its rich history, the San Francisco Bay Area community of a…rtists has thrived and found novel ways to broaden collaboration and establish itself in a global context. Flying Under the Radar fallis right in line with the vision of the Incline Gallery to expand our role by “…facilitating outside curators, international exchanges and partnerships within a community based organization.” As an alternative art space, it is the duty of Incline Gallery to facilitate, support, and facilitate these kinds of collaboration by creating bridges that bring people together.
About Flying Under the Radar:
Artists living in the San Francisco Bay Area have always produced extraordinary works of art. Flying Under the Radar will feature locally celebrated, emerging artists engaged in a vigorous investigation of their communities. They will be paired across disciplines with counterparts from Rio de Janeiro, another legendary port city with a vibrant culture all its own. These pairs of artists, working to transgress national, cultural, and linguistic boundaries, will create new work in the presence of, and with input from, the public. Flying Under the Radar offers an opportunity for art itself to counter the economic forces working against it in our communities, and to allow artists to take the lead, as they so often have.
Artists featured in the February 12th auction:
