SF’s New Art Exhibition “The Compass Rose” at Fort Mason (Jan. 13-Mar. 12)
What do our ancestors pass on to us when they leave behind possessions and other physical evidence of their existence?
Can these objects serve as a means of communication, reckoning, or generational healing?
Sunny A. Smith’s The Compass Rose
January 13-March 12, 2023
Gallery 308, Fort Mason Center for the Arts, 2 Marina Blvd., SF
Free and open to the public
Open Wednesday through Saturday, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In The Compass Rose, a new exhibition at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture, artist Sunny A. Smith invites viewers to consider how material things play a role in driving narratives of history, nationalism, family, and the self. The artist uses a radiant genealogical wheel and a series of art works to navigate the complex legacies of inheritance and lineage, as well as new sculpture, video, and sound works alongside major pieces never before shown on the West Coast.
The Compass Rose is on view through March 12, 2023, in Fort Mason Center’s Gallery 308. The exhibition is free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
