SPRING EXHIBITION TRIO
One of the Nation’s Top Photography Awards
Goes to San Francisco Photographer
Showing: April 2 – May 23, 2009
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 2nd
San Francisco, March 2009 – SF Camerawork surely has a full house this upcoming Spring 2009. With four artists, featured in three exhibits, opening simultaneously on April 2nd, the gallery is filled with a not-to-be-missed visual cornucopia of photography.
• Celebrating the work of Sean McFarland recipient of the 6th annual Baum Award for Emerging American Photographers, and San Francisco’s first photographer to win this prestigious national award, SF Camerawork will feature McFarland’s series ‘Pictures of the Earth’ in the upcoming solo exhibit, Sean McFarland: The 2009 Baum Award for Emerging American Photographers.
• In artist Julie Blackmon’s San Francisco debut exhibit, Domestic Vacations, images both grounded in 21st Century family life and referencing the domestic arena of 17th Century Dutch and Flemish paintings draw the viewer into a world of constructed fantasy where things never seem quite right.
• From fantasy to stark reality, guest curator David Spalding introduces the visually divergent works of two different generations of Chinese artists in Even in Arcadia. A selection of prints from Liu Gang’s series, Paper Dream (2008) & Wang Jianwei’s documentary video, Living Elsewhere offer two distinct but complimentary takes on how subjectivity is shaped by dreams of affluence and feelings of anomie.
