A new initiative
Announcing SoEx's Curatorial Council
A new artist-driven, collaborative research and project-focused group launching in Fall 2017
Southern Exposure is pleased to announce the creation of the Curatorial Council, an artist-driven, collaborative research and project-focused group that will launch in Fall 2017. Participating artists will explore new approaches for presenting artistic practice through commissioning projects, curating exhibitions, and producing educational initiatives, public programs, workshops, and publications.
The Council honors the history and ethos of Southern Exposure, where artists have led its creative vision since its founding in 1974 as a co-operative exhibition space. The eight to ten artists who make up the Curatorial Council will collaborate to create a dynamic conversation amongst themselves and with audiences around the aesthetic, political, social, and economic forces that significantly impact Bay Area populations. During their two-year commitment, Council members will produce in total three to four major projects for Southern Exposure.
Each year, Southern Exposure will invite a wide-ranging group of individuals from the Bay Area arts community to create a more equitable platform for welcoming new decision-makers into our space.
