Sightlines: Photographs from the Collection
151 3rd StreetSan FranciscoCA 94103
Free - $25
Rather than following a linear chronology, "Sightlines" explores a series of stories and perspectives, spotlighting recent additions to the collection throughout. Some galleries focus on an individual artist or series, like Louis Carlos Bernal’s vibrant color photographs of Chicanx families in the Southwest, or Dorothea Lange and Pirkle Jones’ poignant documentation of the demise of a small town in Napa County. Others consider the evolution of a single theme across the history of the medium, such as studio portraiture or the relationship between the body and landscape. The exhibition culminates with a generous selection of works made without a camera, probing the question of what constitutes a photograph. Open Mon–Tues 10 a.m.–5 p.m., Thu 1 p.m.–8 p.m., Fri–Sun 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
