Take Me Away

\n


\n

The San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries and PhotoAll iance present Take Me Away\, a juried photography exhibition compr ised of over 100 works by regional photojournalists and fine artists. Eight een artists were selected through an open call for submissions that encoura ged photographers to reflect on both real and imagined spaces one might vis it in order to leave the everyday. The chosen works represent a myriad of p laces to escape\, ranging from virtual space to locations as close as home. In advance of the call for submissions\, the jurors selected three establi shed Bay Area photographers to present larger bodies of work. David Gardner ’s series about people who trade stability for life in a motor home will si t beside Alice Shaw’s renowned series People Who Look Like Me\, wh ich depicts the artist stretching her own identity in order to look more li ke another person. Rebecca Horne’s domestic scenes contribute an unsettling and fantastical vision of daydreaming gone awry.  The exhibition ultimatel y examines human connections to respite\, adventure\, and fantasy\, through ideas and spaces related to escapism.
