Incline Gallery 766 Valencia Street (@ 19th Street) San Francisco, CA 94110
Hybrid showcases artists who investigate intersections, questioning human relationships to environments both man-made and natural. These artists will make use of the unique hybrid space of Incline Gallery to install a variety of works including found object and utilitarian sculpture, photography, painting, performance, and artist-cocktail mix ology. At the center of their practices is an interest in the body’s relationship to space, architecture, and the material world.
Collaborating artists include: Ricardo Alzati, Calen Barca-Hall, Daniel Bouthot, Marshall Elliott, Kristine Eudey, Steven Froman, Samira Hashemi, Marc Hirsch, Nolan Jankowski, Matthew Kotzin, and Nicholas McCullough.
Curated by SFiCA as part of BREAKOUT!.
SFiCA: BREAKOUT! 2014:
refraction // generation // seepage // hybrid // breakaway // virus // mutation // expulsion
An epidemic has hit the Bay Area, SFiCA: BREAKOUT! 2014. The graduate students of CCA and SFAI have broken free from their institutional boundaries and have mutated into a hybrid machine of art and thought making. This contagion is going viral, taking over galleries across San Francisco and Oakland beginning in February 2014.
SFiCA‘s curatorial committee has organized a series of exhibitions showcasing the works of current CCA and SFAI MFAs, fostering a culture of collaboration between CCA and SFAI and between the different graduate programs within both schools.
The structure of BREAKOUT 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 in on specific areas of interest under an umbrella theme of institutional critique and collaboration between the two schools and highlights the key concerns of current art practices across the programs.
What is SFiCA?
A hybridization of CCA and SFAI, SFiCA (or SFiCA)’s mission is to pool resources and provide as many opportunities for dialogue, exhibition, and participation as possible to the graduate students of CCA and SFAI. A natural and necessary coupling of thinkers, SFiCA’s programs foster a culture of collaboration between the graduate programs of CCA and SFAI and situate artists, curators, designers and writers within the larger Bay Area arts community.
