Public Matters Exhibition

November 1 @ 12:00 pm - December 22 @ 5:00 pm

Capturing the spirit of protest and parade, Public Matters brings together photographs made by Janet Delaney in Reagan-era San Francisco. At this turbulent time in the mid eighties, Delaney was living in the primarily Latino neighborhood of the Mission District. She would spend the weekends photographing public gatherings, from the annual Cinco de Mayo parade, to the Peace, Jobs and Justice marches, which rallied against the U.S. invasion of Nicaragua. If political governance was regressing, the West Coast city was a place where, as Delaney notes, ‘progressive ideas would always be upheld.’ Celebrating multiculturalism and collective struggles for social justice, Public Matters surfaces at a juncture when the message of building bridges is needed now more than ever.

Gallery is only open Wed-Sat.

Opening Reception: Saturday November 3, 2018 6-8pm
Lecture & Book Signing: Thursday November 25, 2018 6-8pm
