STUDIO VISIT: The Art + Architecture Faculty Triennial

Mar. 3 to Apr. 8, 2020

STUDIO VISIT: The Art + Architecture Faculty Triennial presents recent art and design by twenty-seven University of San Francisco faculty alongside the spaces in which these works were made.

There is a long-held fascination with artists’ studios. The spaces utilized by these USF artists run the gamut, from a home studio to a design collective, a secluded barn to a converted warehouse, a technology-cluttered desk to a print shop on wheels. Some have no walls or structure; the artists’ subjects--nature or an urban market--have become the studio. Determined by practical matters such as tools and economy as well as creative processes, they offer insight into the essential elements that support and define each artist’s practice.

Artists include: Noopur Agarwal, Hannah Ahlblad, Rhiannon Alpers, Renata Ancona, Johnna Arnold, Sabiha Basrai, Liat Berdugo + Emily Martinez: Anxious to Make, Hana Böttger, Frank Cole, Sergio De La Torre + Chris Treggiari, Rachel Beth Egenhoefer, Steve Green, Eric Hongisto, Carrie Hott, Sandra Kelch, Kathryn Kenworth, Scott Kildall, Stuart McKee, Sean Olson, Matthew Peek, Tanu Sankalia, Tamara Suarez Porras, Mimi Sheiner, Jessica Snow, Seth Wachtel, Jenifer K Wofford, Susan Wolsborn.

STUDIO VISIT is presented by the University of San Francisco’s Thacher Gallery and the Center for Research, Scholarly, and Artistic Excellence and the Department of Art + Architecture.
