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.

Altman Siegel is excited to host a public discussion over zoom with New Orleans based artist Zarouhie Abdalian and curators Jackie Clay (Coleman Center), Jenny Gheith (SFMOMA) and Xiaoyu Weng (Guggenheim). We can decide, Zarouhie Abdalian’s solo exhibition currently on view at the gallery, will act as a prompt for this group conversation amongst friends and colleagues. Pieces featured in the exhibition will be discussed in context of work the participants have done together in the past.
