Out of Gamut: Expanding Photography in Contemporary Practice with Hybrid Processes
Sunday, February 12 - Saturday, February 18, 2012
Diego Rivera Gallery
Hours: open daily 9:00am-5:00pm
San Francisco Art Institute
800 Chestnut Street
San Francisco,
CA

This exhibition showcases photography that combines anachronistic methods, current techniques, and avant-garde sensibilities. It envisions a hybrid image-making practice, which transgresses prevailing expectations of the medium and expands the potential for creative experimentation and personal expression in photography.

The artists' unorthodox work freely mixes lens-based and cameraless images, chemical and digital means, and photography with printmaking, sculpture, and literature. While each of the artists' work consists of highly personal narratives, their unconventional use of materials is an implicit investigation of the intersections between form and content, surface and object, as well as alchemy and science in photography. 

Opening reception: Tuesday, February 14, with an artist talk at 4:30 and a reception from
5:00–7:00 pm.

Participating Artists:
Adam Donnelly
Toni Gentilli
Marie-Luise Klotz
Amelia Konow
Mido Lee
Oliver Leech
Gio Marquez
Julia Sackett

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.
