With new student shows nearly every week (here, Y-Axis, 2008, a multimedia installation by Brandon Truscott, Andres
Garcia Franco, and John Melvin), the Diego Rivera Gallery is a valuable site for experimentation and exhibition.

About the Student Exhibition

All words are abstract symbols, images that we infuse with meaning. But what does it look like when the boundaries between word and image begin to blur? Word buried in image, image obscured by word.

The works in Black, White and Read All Over explore this convergence and confusion of language and image. Each work will undertake this exploration from a different angle: monumental text, reading as  intimate act, text as instigator of relational dynamics, of humor or persuasion, legible text charged by confession and text at its point of illegibility.

About the Diego Rivera Gallery Exhibitions
The Diego Rivera Gallery, home to SFAI’s historic Diego Rivera Mural, is a student-directed exhibition space for work by SFAI students. The gallery provides an opportunity for students from all academic programs to present their work or curate in a gallery setting; to use the space for large-scale installations; or to experiment with artistic concepts and concerns in a public venue.

The Gallery is open daily from 9 am–5 pm for exhibition and mural viewing on SFAI’s 800 Chestnut Street campus. Opening receptions are on Tuesdays, with an artist talk at 5:30 and a reception from 5–7 pm. For a complete schedule of SFAI's lectures and events, please visit www.sfai.edu/events
