TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: San Francisco Art Institute Presents "Of Here From There - De Aqui Desde Alla"

Feb 07, 2020
From March 6 to April 26, 2020, Creativity Explored (CE) and San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) present Of Here From There - De Aquí Desde Allá, the first large-scale project featuring the work of CE artists with developmental disabilities. Created under the direction of Ana Teresa Fernández, the immersive installation surrounds visitors with fantastical, large-scale sculptures on which animated and time lapse videos are projected. Sculptural surfaces seem to undulate and pulsate, providing an exhilarating experience of the unique art and mark-making processes of almost 50 CE artists.

The exhibition at SFAI’s Ft Mason campus gallery surrounds visitors with fantastical, large-scale sculptures on which animated and time lapse videos are projected. The videos capture the artists’ drawing processes, from Jose Nuñez’s dense repeating bird figures to the growing labyrinths of lines of Roland Record. These images multiply and spread quickly over the white surfaces of the giant flowers, clouds, floating boat, and dragon sculptures designed by CE artists in the installation. It’s an exhilarating experience of the unique art and mark-making processes of almost 50 of CE's artists.
