Art Exhibit: Come to Your Census “Who Counts in America?” | YCBA

YBCA is proud to present Come to Your Census: Who Counts in America? an art and civic experience that examines the issues around the 2020 Census and its direct impact on each individual living in America.

During the four months that the 2020 Census will be open, this participatory experience will feature artworks and activations by over twenty-five Bay Area artists whose work investigates identity, public life, and belonging to educate and inspire the Bay Area’s diverse communities about what’s at stake in this critical population count.

YBCA will present more than twenty-five Bay Area artists:

Mark Baugh-Sasaki
Micah Bazant
Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo
Lukas Brekke-Miesner
Cece Carpio
Yueqi Chen
Creativity Explored
Rodney Ewing
First Exposures
Guillermo Galindo
Ana Teresa Fernández
June Grant
Chris Hamamoto
James Hosking
Vida Kuang

Bijun Liang
Richard Misrach
Takeshi Moro
Leah Nichols
Joan Osato
Maria Paz
Yesica Prado
Jerome Reyes
Dorothy R. Santos
SF Urban Film Fest
Lava Thomas
Sanctuary City Project
Arleene Correa Valencia

These artist works across a range of disciplines to offer art-based explorations of identity, visibility, and citizenship against the backdrop of a city that many historically marginalized and undercounted communities call home. Ranging from site-specific and participatory installations to paintings, films, ceramics, and photographs, the works interrogate the social, political, and cultural implications of being counted. There are more than twelve opportunities for the public to touch, respond to, or co-create work on a daily basis.

Yerba Buena Center For The Arts is closed on Monday, open on  Tuesday–Sunday: 11 am – 6 pm and Thursday: 11 am – 8 pm.

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 concerns, this event has been canceled.
