Incline Gallery is proud to present WHAT IS FREE, a group exhibition featuring the works of 23 emerging Bay Area artists. Participating artists are invited to push creative boundaries in search of their own interpretation of the words WHAT IS FREE. Coming from different mediums, places, generations, and philosophies each artist will contribute something personal and unique to the exhibition by exploring, questioning, and defining ‘FREE’ for themselves.

Curators Anthony Torrano and Siavash Almeida, have been collaborating for the last 3 years, and are happy to present their most ambitious collaborative project yet. As emerging artists in the Bay Area Torrano and Almeida looked to their friends and peers to participate and answer the question WHAT IS FREE Incline Gallery is excited to open up the space to these young curators and all the participating artists and eager to share the thought provoking results with you.

Please join Incline Gallery Friday, January 19th from 6-9pm for the Opening Reception of WHAT IS FREE
