This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Earache :
Organized by San Francisco-based curator Jordan Stein, this exhibition considers photographic works about “discomfort, balance, and language”—and, to a certain extent, comfort and stability. A short section from Tara Jepsen’s coming-of-age book, “Like a Dog,” foregrounds the exhibition with a short, sweet story about siblings negotiating an obscure adventure.
