Produced by the San Francisco Art Institute 2011 MA cohort, TRANSIT/STASIS: Negotiating Movement in the City is a consideration of art and urban movement in San Francisco. It is published to accompany the exhibition of the same name, on view at the Diego Rivera Gallery from April 25 – April 29, 2011 and SOMArts Ramp Gallery from May 1 – May 15, 2011. The exhibition documents five artist projects implemented throughout the spring of 2011, each of which evidences shifting conditions of artistic and spatial production as seen through the frame of transit. The projects, selected for realization from an open call for proposals first circulated in the fall of 2010, include: Aram Bartholl's physical USB flash drive interventions, Dead Drops; Nick Bastis' technologically-mediated spatial navigation project, Foreign Exchange; Julie Cloutier's intimate psychogeographic rock displacements, Rock Portraits, Set D; Resonant City's continued exploration of Bay Area regional identity as formed by public transit; and Christen Sperry-Garcia's embodied transit mapping choreography, Maps, Nodes, Networks.
