MoAD Exhibit 'Where is Here' Accompanied by SF State Poetry Panel

Thursday, January 19, 2017
KQED ARTS (SAN FRANCISCO) -- The exhibition also includes a robust film screening series (including early work from Moonlight director Barry Jenkins) and a poetry panel at San Francisco State University. Such events, like the performances, bring audience members together, physically and spatially. In contrast, there’s an absence of the human figure in the artwork of “Where is Here.” That’s intentional, something the curators took as a productive challenge. Francis says that she and Zarur wondered, “Could the story, or any stories of place, be told without the human figure? Can we think about the ‘where’ of any location without seeing a figure?” she says. “We were interested in seeing how the works stood on their own.”
