San Francisco (Member Event): Private Tour of The Grain of the Present at Pier 24

08/16/2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Artadia Members are invited to join Artadia and Pier 24 Photography for a private tour of The Grain of the Present. 

This special tour will be led by Associate Director Allie Haeusslein and Head of Operations Ry Allred. Following the visit, members are invited to gather at Gott’s Roadside for non-hosted dinner and drinks.

The Grain of the Present, Pier 24 Photography’s ninth exhibition, examines the work of ten photographers at the core of the Pilara Foundation collection–Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Lewis Baltz, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Lee Friedlander, Nicholas Nixon, Stephen Shore, Henry Wessel, and Garry Winograd–whose works share a commitment to looking at everyday life as it is. Works by these 10 luminaries are shown alongside six contemporary practitioners of the medium–Eamonn Doyle, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Ed Panar, Alec Soth, Awoiska van der Molen, and Vanessa Winship. The contemporary works seen here do not merely mimic the celebrated visual languages of the past, but instead draw on and extend them, creating new dialects that are uniquely their own.

Pier 24 Photography provides a quiet, contemplative environment for viewing photographic works. Pier 24 Photography houses the permanent collection of the Pilara Foundation, which is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and exhibiting photography.

Please join us! RSVP essential to Courtney Knights at info@artadia.org. Click here to learn more about Artadia’s Council membership.
