This edition will highlight local San Francisco and international female video and new media artists exploring the issues of power, equity and representation. The artists, each selected by curator Justin Hoover, focus on lens-based media providing new avenues for artistic expression.
The inaugural Connected exhibition is titled The Channel of Democracy: Womanhood, Power & Freedom in Video Art. Featured video artworks will be screened in a purpose-built darkened space, unlike the traditional art fair environment. The 90-minute loop will include stop-motion animation, performances made for cinema, three-dimensional computer-generated music videos and more conventional cinematic art films.
The fair will run February 23-25, 2018, at the Fort Mason Center, San Francisco. First Look, an opening night to benefit the photography program of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, will be held on Thursday, February 22, 2018.
