Is there a Generation Gap between contemporary artists?
What are the benefits of encouraging cross generational collaboration between age groups?
Find out at this exciting and inspiring talk moderated by one of the most respected names in the San Francisco photography scene.
Exhibit extended through September 18th, 2011
The artists in ReGeneration occupy either sides of the â€œgeneration gap,â€ being either veterans of photography that belong to the Baby Boomer generation or part of the up-and-coming ranks of twenty-something photographers. Each established artist has been paired with a younger photographer whom they will be exhibited alongside in order to explore the potential for artistic dialogue. While there is a common belief that miscommunication defines the â€œgap,â€ the exhibition demonstrates how this is far more complex in reality. From surrealist images to stunning landscapes and hard-hitting documentary work, these two groups cut across any age-related differences and the wide spectrum of current themes in photography.
These thought-provoking artists defy rather than defend any kind of perceived barriers between the age groups, proving the point of GÃ©rman Herrera, one participant in the show: â€œI believe that the more individual the search is, the more universal it becomes.â€
