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.

Katy Grannan:
Nicole

Fraenkel Gallery presents a selection of Katy Grannan’s portraits of Nicole, a woman who posed for Grannan over the course of ten years. Grannan has described her as “the most uninhibited person I have ever known.” The images they made together explore power, sexuality, identity, and the tension between artist and subject. “She was so challenging and wonderful to work with because I had so little control. Over time, she made my work better,” says Grannan.

Candice Lin: Roger and friends
Friends Indeed is pleased to present Candice Lin’s first solo exhibition in San Francisco, for which she explores a delirious relationship with her cat Roger, channeled through Vuillard, in this moment of extreme interiority.


Lin will have upcoming solo shows in 2021 at the Walker Art Center, the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts at Harvard University, and the Times Museum in Guangzhou, China. She will also be included in group presentations in Prospect.5 and the Gwangju Biennale. She received her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute and BA from Brown University. The show is curated by Michael Ned Holte.
