The less you see, the more you know features work from artists in SFAI’s Summer 2014 Public Education courses. Weaving throughout the exhibition is the concealment or partial obscurity of information, placing the burden to find something on the viewer. Like a broken projector that skips and stutters frames or burns celluloid, we strain to see the mise en scene, or to know what’s happening. Join SFAI for the Summer Public Education program exhibition.

Size matters. It mattered to Diego Rivera, who complained, “The wall offered me at the School of Fine Arts was a small one of only 120 square feet, not at all suitable to my purpose, which was to present a dynamic concerto of construction—technicians, planners, and artists, working together to create a modern building. Taking advantage of the vague stipulation as to the length of time I might remain in San Francisco, I chose another wall, ten times as big.”

"Spring was never waiting for us dear
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance

"MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, noooo..."

—Donna Summer, MacArthur Park, released in 1978

Playing with different verbs preceded by re—re-experience, reanimate, reencounter, re-envision, rediscover, reform, represent, reprocess—Erik Beltran, Carolin Rechberg, and Tim Kopra challenge perceptions of the work of art, the role of the artist, and the very language we use to talk about them.
