Hosfelt Gallery, San Francisco presents:

Mirror Mirror

Opening reception Sat, July 8, 4-6pm; Exhibition July 8 - August 12, 2017, Tu, W, F, Sa 10am-5:30pm, Th 11am-7pm, San Francisco


In art, the mirror functions as a metaphor for viewing something we otherwise cannot see... most often ourselves. It's a mechanism by which the viewpoint is shifted, and we gain access to knowledge that had heretofore been beyond our reach. Of course, that is also the function of art itself.

Artists hold up a looking glass within which an active viewer must confront their history, prejudices, identity and mortality. This exhibition offers the insights of Jay DeFeo, Monir Farmanfarmaian, Luka Fineisen, Adam Fuss, Timothy Horn, Christian Houge, Birgit Jensen, Stefan Kurten, Marco Maggi, Josiah McElheny, John O'Reilly, Liliana Porter, Gideon Rubin, Ed Ruscha, Cornelius Volker, Zhan Wang and Carrie Mae Weems as they reflect on ideas about "the gaze," the (im)possiblity of veracity and the act of self-judgment.

Opening reception Sat, July 8, 4-6pm; Exhibition July 8 - August 12, 2017, Tu, W, F, Sa 10am-5:30pm, Th 11am-7pm
