Eight bridges connect the San Francisco Bay, so it is an apt name for a gallery platform that brings the Bay Area art world together.

Our mission is to maintain a vibrant gallery scene, despite restrictions on travel, celebrations and other larger gatherings. We want to support our artists by informing and entertaining curators, collectors and critics with potent online exhibitions of their work.

On the first Thursday of every month, we will launch 8 shows of artists relevant to the Bay Area. They may be working in this place, long considered an epicenter of change, or deeply engaged in the conversations the Bay Area holds dear, whether it’s related to technology, the environment, social justice or sexual identity, to name a few. In addition, each month will highlight the crucial work of a Bay Area non-profit arts organization as its beneficiary, with an initial donation led by Phillips.

Martine Gutierrez
Half-Breed

Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to announce Martine Gutierrez: Half-Breed, a new exhibition of photographs. Acting as both subject and producer, Gutierrez explores the multiplicity and complexity of identity in a series of pop-influenced narrative scenes. The exhibition, which takes its name from Cher’s 1973 album, includes selections from three recent series, Body En ThrallPlastics, and Indigenous Woman, the 124-page magazine for which Gutierrez acted as muse, model, photographer, and art director, creating every element from fashion spreads and ads to an editor’s letter. A Berkeley native now based in Brooklyn, this is the artist’s inaugural show with Fraenkel Gallery. The exhibition is on view at 49 Geary Street until January 29, 2022.

Ryan Mrozowski
Racecar in Reverse

Ratio 3 is pleased to present a selection from Racecar in Reverse, a solo exhibition of new artworks by New York-based artist Ryan Mrozowski currently on view at the gallery through December 17, 2021.

Featuring paintings from several related yet distinct bodies of work, this selection showcases the artist’s understated and conceptually rigorous approach to image-making. Taking natural forms—flowers, fruit, birds—as their subjects, Mrozowski’s paintings deconstruct and distort familiar motifs from art-historical traditions of still life painting, calling attention to the active role of viewership and inviting interrogation into unexpectedly profound aspects of perception.

Altman Siegel
Sara VanDerBeek
Chorus

Altman Siegel is pleased to present Chorus, an exhibition of new work by Sara VanDerBeek, her fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. Using unique applications of color, cropping and combinatory actions, VanDerBeek adds to her ongoing investigation into the representation of the female form.

With this new work, VanDerBeek addresses complicated contemporary relationships to the body while exploring her ambivalence toward a gendered understanding of adornment and the ideals of female beauty proposed by these classical forms. Photographing within encyclopedic and historic museums over the last decade, VanDerBeek has collected a significant archive of images. Previous interventions into this archive focused on digital manipulation; including compositing and adding layers of saturated color. Now the artist returns to her earliest methods of image interpretation, applying hand coloration as she paints directly on the surface of her own photographs.

Enlivening her subjects with brightly colored and refractive paints that evoke the jewel-toned palate of the make-up aisle, her various gestures function more to obscure than to reveal. VanDerBeek’s decision to paint her works alludes to the fact that many of these sculptures would originally have been polychromatic, gilded or bejeweled. Allowing for traces of movement, the application and removal of paint from her photographic surfaces creates a record of the artist’s own gesture. Her inquiry into ancient images once again reflects the continued mediation of the female form from antiquity to the present moment.

Sadie Barnette
Inheritance

Jessica Silverman is pleased to announce Sadie Barnette: Inheritance, the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from November 20, 2021 to January 8, 2022. This new body of work uses installation, sculpture, photography, wallpaper and large-scale drawing to examine the artist’s familial legacy. Employing archival material–such as the 500-page dossier compiled by the FBI surveilling her father, Rodney Barnette, during his time in the Black Panther Party–the artist wields the personal nature of generational inheritance to inflect international political struggle with urgency, collapsing temporal distinctions of past and present. The solo presentation at the gallery runs simultaneously with the two-venue exhibition, Sadie Barnette: Legacy and Legend, at Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College and Pitzer College Art Galleries, on view until December 18, 2021. It also coincides with the announcement of Barnette’s commission by Los Angeles International Airport and the L.A. Department of Cultural Affairs to design a permanent site-specific artwork for a new plaza to be completed in 2024, which will display the message “Sister You Are Welcome Here” in brightly colored terrazzo lettering.
