Public Intimacy: Art and Other Ordinary Acts in South Africa
UNITED STATES
SAN FRANCISCO  •  Yerba Buena Center for the Arts  •  21 February - 29 June 2014
 
 

Jointly organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), Public Intimacy: Art and Other Ordinary Acts in South Africa brings together 25 artists and collectives who disrupt expected images of a country known through its apartheid history. The exhibition features an arc of artists who look to the intimate encounters of daily life to express the poetics and politics of the “ordinary act,” with work primarily from the last five years as well as photographic works that figure as historical precedents.
