A group exhibition centered on the sun and exploring the intangible. The curatorial foundation of the SFAC Galleries exhibition, 10,000 Fahrenheit is built on the poetic nature of trying to define that which does not exist in order to better understand our place in the universe. The exhibited works reference the sun/heat/light but are ultimately rooted in the artists' desires to capture the intangible: endurance, memory, resilience, the passage of time and personal connections to the universe at large. In turn, the artists bridge dialogues between contemporary art, human desire and scientific discovery. Opening reception Fri Sep 14 6-8 pm.
Both exhibitions at the San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries this month draw inspiration from the ongoing concern of climate change and the international convening of the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. “10,000 Fahrenheit” is a group exhibition centered on explorations of the sun, and Young Suh’s solo show focuses on wildfires of the last eight years.
