Opening Reception: General Store
Friday, Apr 20, 2018, 6:30PM - 8:00PM
Swell Gallery
Fort Mason Campus at Pier 2, 2 Marina Boulevard

Ordinary objects become unpredictable when translated into paintings, collages, and photographic sculptures, suggesting a complex relationship between objects and lived experiences. Artists in this exhibition, graduating from SFAI Post-Baccalaureate program, reinvent the unique space of the Swell Gallery into a General Store. They create artworks that provide a visual experience of the everyday life while challenging the value of the goods represented and the status of the art object itself, questioning art's place, at base, as a commodity.

Participating artists: Yida Li, Kate Smith, Evelyn Yin, Yourong Zhao

Curated by: Yida Li and Weiying Yu
