Event Details

The notion of sanctuary—both physical and psychological—has been fundamental in shaping a sense of selfhood and social identity throughout human history. But in an era of increasing global migration and rising nationalism, the right to safe haven is under threat, and the necessity for compassion is greater than ever. 

Sanctuary: The Exhibit
On view: Through March 11, 2018
Hours: Wednesday−Sunday, 11a-6p
Fort Mason Chapel, Frankline St. and Pope Rd., SF

For its latest presentation of art about place, FOR-SITE invited 36 artists from 21 different countries to design contemporary rugs reflecting on sanctuary, offering visitors a multiplicity of perspectives on the basic human need for refuge, protection, and sacred ground.
