THREE
TURNS
January 22, 23 and 24 at 7pm, PST
San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) and SF Artists Alumni (SFAA) proudly present Three Turns, a juried exhibition of video works by SFAI alumni artists in dialogue with works selected from the SFAI archive. Featuring 26 artists over the course of three nights, Three Turns will be projected onto the same Tower that houses SFAI's archive, and streamed live online.

​​Archive works were selected by Margaret Tedesco and Leila Weefur, curators of the upcoming 150th anniversary exhibition Spirit of Disruption, and include: Nao Bustamante’s Untitled #1 (from the series "Earth People 2507"), Yin-Ju Chen’s Three Decades of Static, and Steven Arnold’s 1967 work The Liberation of Mannique Mechanique.​

Each night, each Turn includes an initial screening of the archive work alongside the featured responses, followed by a Zoom based panel discussion surrounding the response works with Three Turns Jurors and the artist/representative for the archive work. Three Turns can be seen live on SFAI's historic tower at 800 Chestnut Street or via live stream below.
TURN 2
THREE DECADES OF STATIC
ARCHIVE WORK BY Yin-Ju Chen
The archive work featured in tonight's screening, Three Decades of Static, combines both performance and video art. The artist portrays a state of stress – the stress from self-pressure and the fear of turning 30 years old. Using a unique architectural structure and video technology, the artist imagines three decades of herself.
Panel Discussion
At 7:40 PM (PST), following the first screening, Beth Waldman will lead a brief panel discussion with guests Juror Minoosh Zomorodinia and Film Archive Artist Yin-Ju Chen. Join the panel via Zoom or watch through the live stream above.
