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.

Diego Rivera Gallery

A Queery for Your Vastness
Monday, February 3 - Saturday, February 8, 2014
Diego Rivera Gallery
Opening reception: Tuesday, February 4 | 5 pm
San Francisco Art Institute
800 Chestnut Street
San Francisco,
CA

Exploring the interpersonal mechanisms that afflict personal agency and examining the hyper-sexuality engendered within American consumer culture, A Queery for Your Vastness delves into the concept of the body as a transparent container into which viewers may insert themselves.

Does the body end at the skin? What is at stake when one disrobes him/herself? What does an individual's embarrassment reveal about us? The works on display will attempt to address these questions.

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
