DESCRIPTION

“ReGeneration,” a new exhibition opening on August 11th at a.Muse Gallery will bring together eight contemporary Bay Area photographers for the first time. There will be a free public reception for the artists on Saturday, August 13th, from 5:30 to 9pm. The exhibit runs through September 5th, 2011.

Exhibitors in ReGeneration occupy either side of the “generation gap”—Baby Boomers or Twenty-somethings. Both groups were gleaned from San Francisco’s celebrated Contemporary photography scene. These thought-provoking artists defy rather than defend any kind of perceived barriers between the age groups, proving the point of Gérman Herrera, one participant in the show: “I believe that the more individual the search is, the more universal it becomes.”

From surrealist images to stunning landscapes and hard-hitting documentary works, these two age groups cut across both generations, and the wide spectrum of current themes in photography.
