The SFAC Galleries’ has commissioned new installations from three dynamic, young regional artists for our new exhibition, Visible Horizons. Andrew Chapman, Chris Duncan and Rhonda Holberton, acting as both curators and artists, will be presenting three perspectives on the idea of the horizon, drawing attention to the roles access, visibility, and myth have on relationships between landscape, architecture, and the human body. In our daily lives the true horizon is largely obscured by natural and human-created objects; this augmented intersection of earth and sky is called the visible horizon. While the horizon can be understood as a site of unification, it also divides all visible directions into two categories: those that intersect the Earth's surface, and those that do not. Chapman’s layered multimedia installation, Duncan’s interactive aural landscape and Holberton’s camera obscura will offer visitors a chance to challenge their literal and conceptual notion of where and what the horizon is and how we interact with it on a daily basis.
Free Public Programs will play a large role in this exhibition. Watch for announcements soon about experimental music nights, a special film screening and more!
