Gaye Chan showing at Southern Exposure, San Francisco

Department Chair and faculty member Gaye Chan is included in an exhibition entitled "On the Ground" curated by Weston Furuya at Southern Exposure in San Francisco.

Chan's contribution, entitled "Free Grindz", is a part of her ongoing work as EATING IN PUBLIC. Free Grindz is both an edible weed information center and a weed seed distribution station. Designed as a shipping crate and made (almost) entirely out of found material, it unfolds into the exhibition itself.

On the Ground presents new work arising from artists' relationship to particular localities - San Francisco. O'ahu. Cairo. The North coast of Egypt. Tijuana. Puerto Rico and its diaspora. Mexico City. Puebla. Monterrey. Queretaro. The artists in "On the Ground" build from the specific codes and nuances of these places, creating their own narratives and gestures that begin to reveal or reimagine their communities.
