“Twisted Sisters: Reimagining Urban Portraiture”
Zürich, Museum Bärengasse
Exhibition + 80 Downtown kiosk posters
2013 Sister City Exchange: San Francisco – Zürich
July 4 – September 7, 2013
The San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery has teamed up with the City of Zürich to present a dynamic, multifaceted, travelling exhibition project celebrating the 10th anniversary of our Sister City relationship. SFAC Galleries piloted the biennial Sister City Exchange in 2011 with Sydney, AU, and has greatly expanded the scope of this important cultural exchange project with the Zürich collaboration. In addition to a central exhibition featuring artwork by emerging and mid-career photographers from SF and Zürich, there will be downtown kiosk posters, educational programs and public events that accompany the exhibition in each city…
TWISTED SISTERS is co-curated by SFAC Galleries Director, Meg Shiffler and Zürich-based independent curator Alexandra Blättler. They asked conceptual photographers from each city to create new and unexpected urban portraits. The resulting 80+ images challenge and occasionally subvert stereotypes associated with these two great metropolises through narratives and landscapes that strip away, twist, or dig under the picture-perfect postcard and expose the nasty histories, private lives, hidden views and constructed alter-realities.
