[SF] Magnet 20th Anniversary Art Show

Celebrate 20 Years of Supporting Queer Visual Artists at the Strut Sexual Health Clinic in San Francisco. 

How can one summarize 20 years of art shown at Magnet? Hundreds of artists, mostly solo shows and some in their own organized group efforts, have shown an incredible range of creations. Rather than pick and choose artists or artworks retrospectively, Curator Matthew Denckla suggested a special, “open call” for submissions, to resonate with and echo our annual call for artists, turning outward for what artists working today might send. Instead of looking across time, we offer a “cross section” of recent works. In this selection, we hope to encourage and inspire dialogue across various media, methods and artists; across our communities; and inside of each of us about what we show about ourselves, our experiences and our many ways of seeing the world through making art.

-From the Curator, Matthew Denckla
