"I hope to draw our attention to the threads with which our very social fabric is bound and fashioned."

On Friday, January 20, 2005, Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi hosts the monthly Third Friday’s Art Reception in his City Hall office, Room 282. This month’s featured artist is Andy Diaz Hope.

Andy Diaz Hope, a Bay Area native, questions the stereotypes and cliches circulated by popular media. By refabricating the form in which we sustain our self-image and protect ourselves from our image as an enemy, Diaz Hope wants to draw our attention to the threads with which our very social fabric is bound and fashioned. Often funny and always telling, his work permits candid interactions to deconstruct our stereotypes, prejudices and preconceived notions, be they conscious or not.

Diaz Hope has shown his work in the MoMA permanent collection, the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia, and the London Crafts Counsil, as well as in numerous shows throughout the United States, England, Australia and Japan. You can view his work online at http://www.andydiazhope.com.
