ARTIST TALK & RECEPTION: Artists Val Britton, Amanda Hughen, and Jennifer Starkweather Talk Maps and Art with Curator Aimee Le Duc
San Francisco, CA 94102
WHAT: The San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries brings together three Bay Area artists whose practice shares an affinity with the language of maps. Amanda Hughen and Jennifer Starkweather, who collaborate as the artist team, Hughen/Starkweather and are behind the critically-acclaimed Approach, Transition, Touchdown: The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Project will participate in a panel discussion with Val Britton, whose site-specific installation, The Continental Interior, is currently on view at the SFAC Galleries’ window installation site at 155 Grove Street. Working primarily with paper collage, painting, drawing and printmaking, Britton creates imaginary landscapes that depict physical and psychological spaces. For The Continental Interior, she expands the boundaries of her art practice by breaking out of the two-dimensional into three-dimensional space, creating a large-scale installation made from recycled materials and hand cut, organic paper shapes that resemble landmasses. Moderated by SFAC Galleries Manager and project curator, Aimee LeDuc, the panel will take place on Wednesday, November 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
