The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Gallery’s Art at City Hall
program has teamed up with the International Museum of Women
coordinate and present a large-scale juried photo exhibition at San
Francisco City Hall and online at the IMOW web site. Over 50
extraordinary and moving works by artists across the globe celebrate
women as economic participants and agents of change. Picturing Power & Potential
is project of Economica: Women and the Global Economy
, an extensive and multi-faceted online exhibition presented by IMOW.
The jury reviewed works by 150 artists who responded to an
international call for submissions. In the end twenty artists were
selected: six artists from the Bay Area, four additional US artists, and
artists from Japan, Kenya, Brazil, The Netherlands, China, India, Iran
and Canada. The subject matter ranges from teen community leaders in
Richmond, CA to entrepreneurs in Ghana. And from opera singers in Brazil
to seaweed farmers in Zanzibar.
The exhibition is divided into two distinct sections: ten artists
exhibiting multiple images from large bodies of work, alongside a single
remarkable portrait from ten more artists. Note that we will be
exhibiting seven images from Joanna Lipper’s Seaweed Farmers
nominated for a Prix Pictet award. Launched in 2008, the Prix Pictet is
the world’s first prize dedicated to photography and sustainability.
