Intersection for the Arts

San Francisco has been synonymous with political activism since the 1960s, and Intersection for the Arts was right there with her. Since its inception in 1965, Intersection has upheld a rich and varied tradition of supporting work that is actively engaged with political and cultural events. It seems fitting then that, when the Internet rendered downsizing inevitable at the San Francisco Chronicle and the first-floor of the journalism giant’s beloved 1924 “Chron” Building became partially available, Intersection would jump at the opportunity to relocate to this locale at the heart of the city. The inaugural solo exhibition at the organization’s new home blurred the boundaries between the personal and the political, activism and art. Chronicling every movement of artist Hasan Elahi, “Hiding in Plain Sight” combined Minimalist aesthetics, contemporary technology, and a Fluxus dedication to the simple principle of life as art. …see the entire review in the print version of December’s Sculpture magazine.
