The Coldest Winter I Ever Spent Was A Summer in San Francisco

It's doubtful that Mark Twain actually uttered the famous line, but that makes it no less true. While the rest of the country swelters, residents of San Francisco don sweaters, and under-dressed visitors freeze to death. Consequently, "summer" here has particular and peculiar connotations. In this exhibition we present "cool" work by both local and international artists including Chris Ballantyne, Jim Campbell, Julie Chang, Russell Crotty, Reed Danziger, Marietta Hoferer, Timothy Horn, Christian Houge, Michael Light, Crystal Liu, Liliana Porter, Lordy Rodriguez, Arngunnur Yr and others.
