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.

Catharine Clark Gallery – Online presentation of Nina Katchadourian’s “Orientation Video” (2020)

January 11


Catharine Clark Gallery’s online debut of Nina Katchadourian’s “Orientation Video” (2020) tells the compelling and complex story of the artist’s 45-year engagement with the book Survive the Savage Sea, the true story of the Robertsons, a family of farmers in England who sold all their possessions to buy a sailboat, with the intent of sailing around the world for several years. In June 1972, the Robertsons lost their sailboat in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean when a pod of Orca smashed the hull, leaving the four adults and two children adrift for 38 days; Katchadourian’s Orientation Video tells the family’s story, as well as the artist’s own creative response to the book’s core themes of isolation, uncertainty, and survival.
