San Francisco –
April 6, 2022  Chicago-based artist and winner of SF Camerawork’s 2020 Exhibit Award, Aimée Beaubien presents her much-anticipated installation Aimée Beaubien: Matter in the Hothouse, which had been postponed due to the Pandemic. Olivia Lahs-Gonzales, SF Camerawork’s Executive Director says of the exhibition “We are excited to finally be able to present this exhibit and welcome our audiences back to an in-person experience. Aimée Beaubien’s work fits perfectly with our mission to “provoke discovery, experimentation, and exchange through exhibitions and experiences for all who value new ideas in photography!

Selected from a pool of over 200 applicants, Beaubien is creating an original, immersive installation comprised of cut and woven photographs of plants, organic plant materials, and mixed media additions that are hung from the ceiling in strips and waves, which visitors are invited to enter and carefully traverse.

Erika Gentry, Programming Committee Chair, wrote of the proposal, “Beaubien’s work stood out for its conceptual strength and innovative presentation, which animates photographs to become a series of moving parts, pushing their capacity to change and to transform.” Beaubien says of the opportunity to show at SF Camerawork: “I look forward to the tremendous opportunity to present a chain of experiential shifts between visual representation and the physical encounter. In this installation, everything is interconnected and the overall effect fights with attention to focus on a single photographic moment.”

Beaubien mines qualities of the garden that run parallel to the nature of photography— both are defined by interactions of the scientific, the accidental, and the temporal. While walking through one of her installations, photographic elements seem to slip between recognition and abstraction. Bold leaf shapes and twisting ribbons of photos entwine, cluster and creep. Photographed plants, interlaced vines, and woven topographies merge into fields of color and pattern and back again – expanding the ever more complicated sensations of reading a photograph and experiencing nature.

Between Background and Foreground

January 20 - August 7

Last fall, LaToya Ruby Frazier’s photograph Grandma Ruby’s Refrigerator was the centerpiece for incoming students’ conversations about identity, place, and social change in the exhibition Shared Art. This spring, the conversations continue with a selection of images from the AMAM collection of American photography. From Lewis Hine’s portrait of Pittsburgh steelworkers in the early 20th century to a still life by Nan Goldin taken in the first days of quarantine in 2020, the exhibition probes how and why artists have captured personal experiences and larger social narratives in their photography.

MULTITUDES

January 24, 2021 - September 5, 2022

Many minds, one project: the American Folk Art Museum is a collection of multitudes. Marking the occasion of the Museum’s 60th anniversary, the displays on view mine this figurative expression as a metaphor for the vast breadth of the Museum’s holdings and its many creators. From its inception in the 1960s and gathering momentum over the decades, AFAM developed as a “collection of collections,” a result at once unified and expressive of numerous perspectives.

Omnipresent throughout the exhibition is the concept of multitudes as reflected in the artistic process itself—from gestures of repetition and seriality, as well as organizing acts of systematization, memorialization, inventory-taking, and the creation of casts of characters. Meanwhile, across the galleries, groupings prompt consideration of art-making and collecting as aligned creative practices, each contributing to identity-formation and world-building. Presented non-chronologically, the works are visually clustered to reveal not only their individuality but also their commonalities and underlying patterns.

Moving across four centuries, AFAM’s collection brings together a rich array of voices, experiences, and mindsets, yielding a correspondingly diverse set of objects: community-based creations rooted in long-standing traditions; functional but highly aesthetic objects reflecting widespread popular practices; distinctive works by neurodivergent individuals made outside the purview of artistic peers; works as fragments entangled in lifelong private mythologies. Rejecting artificial and discriminatory boundaries prevalent in dominant art historical narratives, by which formally trained artists are often constrained, the identity of the Museum’s collection has been formed and reformed over the years by newly-added makers and fresh ideas. The idea of multitudes invites a meditation on the complexities of the Museum’s evolving and multifaceted collection as a larger whole, constituting more than the sum of its parts.

Red Star’s work is informed by her cultural heritage and engagement with many forms of creative expression, including photography, sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance.This exhibition, installed throughout the first floor of the museum, explores the ideas of Westward Expansion and Manifest Destiny through the lens of John Gast’s 1872 painting, American Progress. Gast’s painting exemplifies the justification of American settlers driving Indigenous communities off their land during the 19th century.

Esery Mondesir: Esery Mondesir: We Have Found Each Other

December 18, 2021 - August 7, 2022

Toronto-based artist-filmmaker Esery Mondesir describes the impulse that fuels his art practice as “a search for kinship.” At the heart of his work is Mondesir’s connection to the Haitian diaspora, based on his own experience of migration: the artist left Haiti, his country of birth, at the age of 28.

Mondesir mines personal archives, institutional collections, music, and oral histories to chart and connect people and places with links to Haiti. The film footage, score, passport photographs, and text presented here are expressions of his search. They reflect an extended family he has found, across decades, and connecting Toronto, Havana, Montreal, Port-au-Prince, and the Oti region of Ghana.
