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.

Ever Gold [Projects] – Reimagining Artist/Dealer Relationships

January 30 @ 2:00 pm PST - 3:00 pm PST

Join us for a conversation about reimagining artist/dealer relationships with artist and former dealer Mieke Marple and artist manager and curator Maya Futrell. We will examine whether the model of gallery as both brick-and-mortar retail space and talent management is still relevant today.

In doing so, we will discuss the inefficiencies of such a model and how they promote white supremacy by functioning as barriers to entry, as well as how they contribute to the disparity between mega-galleries with several locations and single-gallery businesses. Lastly, we will look at how this model has negatively impacted artists by focusing on the short-term commodification of their work rather than the long term development of their careers.

Join Zoom meeting here.
