Interviews with curator Ángel Rafael Vázquez-Concepción.

A faculty exhibition, by its very nature, is a model of the teaching community of the institution that produces it and hosts it.

More Than 700 Years, the title of the SFAI 2019 Faculty Exhibition, springs from the summation of time invested by each participating faculty member; an amalgam of years of activity both in the studio and in the classroom.

In this way, the showcase is an intersection of education, nuanced artistic labor, and dedication.

The exhibition is an opening of a window into a contingent space — a convergence of incidents and objects that braid together the practices of the community that imparts knowledge and experience at SFAI.

More Than 700 Years — spanning both campuses at Fort Mason Center and Chestnut Street — is also a sweet farewell to the graduating class of 2019, a playful wink to returning students, and a warm welcome to the incoming class of 2020. It is the reboot of a lost tradition of faculty exhibitions at SFAI, and a fresh approach to it as well.

As a survey, this exhibition is the product of collaboration between the artists, curator Ángel Rafael Vázquez-Concepción, and the SFAI exhibitions team. Each piece is representative of current investigations in the teaching artist’s studio.

 

More Than 700 Years includes 28 artists:

At SFAI—Fort Mason Campus: Johnna Arnold, Elizabeth Bernstein, Timothy Berry, Brad Brown, Luke Butler, James Claussen, Kerry Laitala, Mads Lynnerup, Felicita Norris, Jordan Reznick, Kate Rhoades, and Meredith Tromble.

At the Walter and McBean Galleries: Chris Bell, Mark Brest van Kempen, Caitlin Mitchell-Dayton, Linda Connor, Sofía Córdova, John de Fazio, Ivan Iannoli, Tony Labat, Ryan Peter, J. John Priola, Brett Reichman, Kal Spelletich, Leila Weefur, Lindsey White, and Wanxin Zhang.
