Intersection for the Arts
446 Valencia Street (btwn 15/16), Mission District
San Francisco, CA 94103
INTERSECTION FOR THE ARTS is San Francisco's oldest alternative art space and provides a place where provocative ideas, diverse art forms, artists and audiences can intersect one another. At Intersection, experimentation and risk are possible, debate and critical inquiry are embraced, community is essential, resources and experience are democratized, and today's issues are thrashed about in the heat and immediacy of live art.
Learning to Curate an Art Show
with Julio Morales
Tuesdays, May 19 - June 9, 6-9pm
$180 ($170 for Intersection Members)
Re-imagine yourself and pick up essential skills in this changing world with an opportunity to curate your own art show and learn practical ways to put together a grant proposal, find funding, plan, promote, curate and hang an art show in public and gallery settings; you will also learn about public art projects, community programming and public interventions. This four-week workshop for artists and non-artists will be led by Visual Artist, Curator and Educator Julio Cesar Morales and will include presentations by guest artists and curators. This exciting and inventive workshop will culminate with a multi-location exhibit in local cafes, restaurants and businesses.
Julio Cesar Morales uses a range of media including photography, video, and printed and digital media to make conceptual projects that address the productive friction that occurs in trans-cultural territories such as urban Tijuana and San Francisco, and in inherently impure media such as popular music and graphic design. He studied in the New Genres department at The San Francisco Art Institute, resent solo exhibitions include, Fototeca de Havana in Cuba, Peres Projects in Los Angeles, Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Arte Roma, Mexico City, UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles and The San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art with groups shows at The San Juan Triennial in Puerto Rico, Harris Lieberman, New York City, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt, Germany, The 2006 Singapore Biennale and the 10th Annual Istanbul Biennale.
