Curated by CCA’s Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice Class of 2019, To Know Herself explores the lesbian bar as a place for social and political change. Bars dedicated exclusively to queer women are systematically disappearing around the country,particularly in San Francisco. To Know Herself utilizes the bar in CCA Wattis Institute’s event space in lieu of the conventional gallery in order to study the ways these artists explore the impact and value of lesbian bars and the effects of their disappearance, as well as possibilities for their eventual reconstruction.
The exhibition features works by Tammy Rae Carland and Macon Reed.
Exhibition opening is Thursday April 4 from 6:30-8:30pm. For more information, visit here.
