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
The WHIMSICAL SISTER GROUP show is a lighthearted examination of feminine identity through a variety of media. Narratives of sisterhood, bodily abjection, and childhood fantasy are woven through mediums of installation, sculpture, painting and pencil drawings. Using the body as a flexible object of discourse, these artists stretch and contort normative understandings of gender identification and feminine collectivity. WHIMSICAL SISTER GROUP is curated by Ariel Zaccheo.

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
