VISITING ARTISTS + SCHOLARS LECTURE SERIES
More Than 700 Years: A conversation between curator Ángel Rafael Vázquez-Concepción and SFAI Faculty Members

Refreshments available before the talk from 5–6pm, followed by a closing reception from 7:30–9pm.

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. For this Visiting Artist and Scholars lecture, More Than 700 Years curator Ángel Rafael Vázquez-Concepción will lead a panel discussion with SFAI faculty members to reflect on the role of the teaching artist in the Bay Area. This conversation pulls from the work in the accompanying exhibition while expanding on the individual artist’s experience navigating between these worlds.

More Than 700 Years runs from June 4 to September 1, 2019
Closing Reception: Thursday, August 29 | 7:30-9pm at SFAI—Chestnut Street Campus
Extended Gallery hours: 11am–9pm
