Ghosts of the Tower: Part Two

San Francisco Art Institute

The second public display of SFAI's archive of nearly 150 years of art history. The archive contains a vast store of unique primary source materials, including over a thousand recordings of artist lectures, correspondences, catalogs, installation views, and posters. Within the trove are John Cage's legendary question-and-answer sessions, San Francisco Art Association's board approval for the 1878 public presentation of Eadweard Muybridge's Zoopraxiscope, cassettes of Angela Davis' lectures, Diego Rivera's fee negotiation for his site-specific fresco, documentation of David Dashiell's seminal 1993 exhibition Queer Mysteries, and images of Mark Bradford's first ever solo show that took place in SFAI's own Atholl McBean Gallery.
