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.

Dionne Lee & Laurie Reid

Et al. is proud to present a two-person exhibition with works by Dionne Lee and Laurie Reid, two artists we’ve worked with in the past and will work with again.

In Dionne Lee’s words:
“The two silver gelatin works presented here Floaters and Fleet are focused on water as a wilderness space. Floaters references ancestral trauma as it relates to water (transatlantic slave trade)…though the figures in the image are actually synchronized swimmers. Fleet is from an instructional sailing book–the images are repeated but manipulated via scanner. In it I am thinking about the freedom of travel and excitement of exploration, but also the wickedness that has historically come under the guise of “exploration”.

In Laurie Reid’s words:

“Phenomenal Darkness or The Thrill of the Sensation of Perception.

I spent much of the month of January 2020 in darkness. Ensconced away in a small house way up North in Fair Isle, Scotland, the days were short. The sun rose around 9am and set around 3 in the afternoon. After the sun went down there was only the light of the moon and stars and the intermittent beam from the lighthouse at the end of the road. As the nights were rarely clear, the darkness was profound.”
