Opening Reception and Live Auction: Saturday, Dec. 2, 4 - 7pm

Gazing at the sky is a visceral and ancient method of inquiry, for reasons both practical (storms ahead?) and profound. The shell of the sky that separates the earthly from the celestial is a portal to the fathomless unknown – a place that has been parsed and illuminated for millennia through the lenses of science, religion, poetry, and art. With the sky as jumping-off point, we’ve invited 20 visual artists- many of them current and former teachers with the San Francisco Arts Education Project- to share their visions of what resides above. All works are for sale, with proceeds to benefit SFArtsED’s educational programs and the artists in equal measure.

At the opening reception, five additional works will be offered in a live auction. We are honored that esteemed San Francisco gallerist (and longtime supporter) Catharine Clark will be our auctioneer. The exhibition continues in our gallery at Minnesota Street Project through January 27, 2024.

The landscape of memory has shifted dramatically over the course of the Digital Age, marked by the ease and speed at which we can record, store, and share information. Encode/Store/Retrieve draws together artworks from SJMA’s collection to explore low-tech forms of memory production and provide strategies to grapple with the emerging issues of our growing digital archive.

Featured artists include Wallace Berman, Val Britton, Jim Campbell, Enrique Chagoya, Chryssa, Binh Danh, Steven Deo, Bruce Hasson, Xandra Ibarra, Dinh Q. Lê, Darlene Nguyen-Ely, Margaret Nielsen, Harold Paris, Beverly Rayner, Analia Saban, Katherine Sherwood, Rose B. Simpson, Stephanie Syjuco, Stella Waitzkin, Xiaoze Xie, and more.
