> DESCRIPTION

The Long Conversation, a large-scale group exhibition and performance series, presents work by current and former Bay Area artists whose practices are rooted in the strategies of the West Coast, alternative, idea-based, experimental and time-based artwork pioneered in the 1970s. Organized in conjunction with Southern Exposure’s 39th Birthday, the exhibition features actions, videos, performances, installations and events presented both on and off-site.

This cross-generational project includes artists working in the Bay Area since the 1970s as well as a new generation of artists staking a claim within experimental, conceptual and engaged methods. Their post-studio practices are often performative, endurance-based or centered around a displaced object or action. With the current proliferation of cultural producers and images, along with the disruptive and quickly changing character of the region, The Long Conversation revisits the strategy of thinking as a premise for making.
