Embark Exhibition

02.20.15 - 03.22.15

Located in the historic Fort Mason Center, once called the San Francisco Port of Embarkation, the very architecture of the Embark gallery is imbued with the spirit of the 1.6 million passengers who came to Fort Mason to commence voyages into the unknown. Artists were asked to submit works of any media pertaining to the theme of embarkation: the inception of change, beginning anew, and journeys of any kind. Whether understanding “Embark” as narrative, philosophical, abstract or otherwise, we encouraged innovative submissions with exploration and risk-taking in mind.

Artists in this exhibition include: Bobby Anspach (CCA), Jose Figueroa (UC Berkeley), Matthew Goldberg (SFAI), Omar Mismar (CCA), Jacqueline Norheim (Mills), Michelle Ott (UC Berkeley), Courtney Sennish (CCA), and Matt Smith Chavez (UC Berkeley).
