Cuba Open Studio Provides Powerful Cultural Exchange 5 A Student-Run Newspaper is Revived After Thirty Years



Letter From the President O

n November 12 and 13, San Francisco Art Institute held its annual event, Concentrate: An Uncommon Art Sale and Festival, along with our Alumni weekend. The weather cooperated nicely, and everyone enjoyed two gorgeous days of sunshine at 800 Chestnut Street. The weekend offered a spirited mix of events. One hundred and thirty student-artists set up tables throughout the Brown building and sold work, much of it made expressly for the sale. Katya Min, Curator of Public Programs at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, juried the Alumni exhibition in the Diego Rivera Gallery. In addition to the works on view in the gallery, all submissions were included on a slide show in the gallery. Professor Emeritus Paul Kos led a Pétanque challenge on the roof. Faculty and alumni gathered in the café for a lunch, at which two longtime SFAI faculty – Bruce McGaw and Sharon Grace – were honored for their many years of teaching as they prepare to retire at the end of this academic year. And SFAI Archivist and Special Collections Librarian Jeff Gunderson joined alum Don Ed Hardy in conversation in the Lecture Hall on the work of another alum, painter Joan Brown. In and amidst all these activities, I had the pleasure to be in conversation with SFAI’s next President, Gordon Knox, in the Lecture Hall. To start, I asked Gordon to speak about how his academic background in anthropology had led him to a career working with artists, and he responded by discussing the commonalities he sees between anthropology and art – both of which are, in essence, methodologies for engaging with culture and society.

I shared the following quote from Gordon and asked him to elaborate: “For a century and a half, and still going strong, SFAI has fed the city with exploratory thinking, disruptive artistic investigation, sublime art-making, and a persistently clairvoyant perception of how the arts change us all.” In response, Gordon shared his long history and knowledge of SFAI, dating back to when his sister enrolled in our BFA program, and extending to recent interactions with many SFAI faculty and alumni. The weekend was a nice bookend for my year (or so) as Interim President of SFAI, as I recall last year’s event as a wonderful touchstone that connected current students, alumni, and all in the SFAI community. As I look forward to welcoming Gordon on board in the new year and working with him in my upcoming capacity as Provost and Senior Vice President, I will think fondly of this festive weekend.

All my best,

Rachel Schreiber Interim President

Letter From the Board Chair Over many decades, San Francisco Art Institute has played an outsized role in American art history, graduating many of the nation’s most prominent artists and influencing the major artistic movements of the 20th and 21st centuries. I am happy to share that Gordon Knox will join us at the start of Spring 2017 as our next president, and I very much look forward to him continuing and enhancing SFAI’s long list of achievements. Gordon brings to SFAI a deep commitment to arts education, along with 25 years of experience developing institutions and working to create opportunities for practicing artists. He fully understands and is inspired by the challenges of leading a contemporary art school, and fostering a student-centered campus culture that supports student success. Gordon’s appointment comes at a time when the entire San Francisco creative community is undergoing an unprecedented renaissance with expanded museums and galleries and opportunities for artists to study and thrive. And importantly in this broader cultural moment, Gordon believes in the power of artists to advance critical dialogue and share the deep human values that the arts are uniquely capable of communicating. Gordon comes to SFAI from the Arizona State University (ASU) Art Museum, where he has served as Director since 2010. His work has long focused on the transformative role of the arts in society and, under his direction, the ASU Art Museum became a model of social engagement and change in the region. Prior to his time at the ASU Art Museum, Gordon was the Director of Global Initiatives at the Stanford Humanities Lab. Gordon also served as the Artistic Director at the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California, and during the 1990s was the Founding Director of the Civitella Ranieri Foundation in Italy. I invite you to read the full press release about Gordon’s appointment at Best wishes,

Alum Younhee Paik Funds New Scholarship This fall, alum Younhee Paik (MFA Painting, 1973) made a generous commitment to SFAI with a pledge to fund an annual scholarship exhibition, and opening reception at her Studio for Art and Music. SFAI is happy to announce that the inaugural recipient for 2016-2017 is Eric Carson. Paik’s gift was inspired by her time at SFAI in the 1970s and her mentor, professor Bruce McGaw, whose dedication gave her the tools and confidence to follow her passion for painting.

SFAI’s 3rd Street Studios Program Awards 19 Artists with Residencies In the current economic climate, artist displacement is a significant threat to the Bay Area’s artistic community. This past October, SFAI launched its 3rd Street Studios Program, which aims to provide a supportive artist community and hopes to provide long-term support to artists. Nineteen artists were selected and come from a broad range of disciplines. Most are SFAI alumni, Visiting Faculty, Public Education Faculty, or have been connected to the school for some time.

Rebecca Chou: Public Education Student and New SFAI Board Member In the following conversation Public Education Printmaking instructor Savanna Snow (MFA, 2012) and Rebecca Chou (SFAI Board Member), both currently involved in SFAI Public Education as a teacher and student, respectively, talk about their artistic practices. Savanna Snow (SS): I think we share a commonality with our rigid painting practices. For me, where printmaking and painting meet is that they’re both practice and process oriented. There’s a lot of set-up in printmaking, but after you have your screens, there’s a freedom. Rebecca Chou (RC): I’ve recently begun to incorporate fabric or hatch marks into my abstract paintings through image transfers, which led me to take this screenprinting class— my first one. I’ve watched videos online, but that’s nothing like the opportunity to learn the entire process and figure out how to incorporate the medium into my work. SS: Yes, printmaking is a lot less immediate than you would think. It might look easy, but the process goes from photographing, editing, and color separating the image into films to cleaning, coating, and burning screens. RC: My first print—a self-portrait—was inspired by Andy Warhol’s Mick Jagger screenprints that I recently saw at Saatchi Gallery. I’ve done three colors of my self-portrait in two different styles. Now I’m doing a series about Angry Birds; maybe I’ll do Pokémon Go next. SS: Printmaking is actually not very restricting; once you have that screen done, you can essentially do anything you want with color and composition. It’s really liberating. You’ve been inspiring people in class too! 4

RC: In printmaking, there are a lot of surprises; you don’t really know how your work is going to turn out until the very end. There’s a lot of build up, and the climax is when you print on your paper, or add colors to an existing print. And certain happy accidents can happen, such as if you run your screen too many times and your image gets shaky, not overlapping exactly. SS: I started out teaching in the Young Artist Program, then PreCollege, and now in Public Education. I’m constantly awed by the quality of the work my students generate. You get to this place where you’re printing and it gets very academic and very serious—it’s your art. But when you’re teaching, your students just do things and you learn too.

I bring people here who aren’t artists and get them engaged in SFAI and the arts. –Rebecca Chou RC: As an SFAI Board member, I want to help move the school’s purpose forward and try to fill in the gaps and make it a highly successful institution. That’s my passion. I bring people here constantly who aren’t artists and get them engaged in SFAI and the arts. Read the full Q + A at

Cuba Open Studio Provides Powerful Cultural Exchange

This past summer, a group of SFAI students and faculty participated in an intensive and immersive experience known as Cuba Open Studio. Faculty member and trip coordinator Shannon Castleman tested the meaning of cultural production beyond the boundaries of a familiar context and alongside students from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Cuba. Some of the students were able to participate thanks to support from gifts made in memory of alumnus Cameron Hockenson (MFA Sculpture, 2008). The trip culminated with a powerful show called En Regla this October in SFAI’s Diego Rivera Gallery, and included work by Juan Pablo Ayala, Michael Braillard, Lisa Foote, Mitch Greer, Olivia Johnson, David Koktika, Michael Naify, Desiree Rios, and Hailey Scheffler. Background: Students gathering outside Felipe Dylzaides’ (MFA New Genres, 2001) Regla studio following their exhibition opening.

MFA STUDENT MICHAEL NAIFY REFLECTS ON HIS EXPERIENCE When I went to Cuba I was interested in getting to know a boxer. I met Enrique by accident in the Plaza close to our hotel. He told me that because he was not a member of the Communist Party, he couldn’t compete in matches that would have resulted in him climbing the ranks of his sport. In the 1970s he eventually boxed in East Germany and Russia. I tried to portray Enrique today, not as the boxer he was, but as a man whose life has lost its shine, and the conquests of the past are just that, in the past.

Fond Farewell to Bruce McGaw and Sharon Grace This year SFAI bids farewell to two of our most beloved professors: Bruce McGaw and Sharon Grace, who are retiring after the Spring 2017 semester. McGaw began teaching in 1957 and Grace in 1984. The two will be dearly missed on campus. Countless students are deeply grateful for their guidance and inspiration over the years. Bruce and Sharon: We are tremendously lucky to have you as part of our community. Thank you for everything!

In Memoriam RUTH BRAUNSTEIN (1923–2016)

Gallerist and champion of emerging artists Ruth Braunstein passed away in September 2016. She devoted her life to supporting contemporary artists and always encouraged those she represented in her galleries to take risks and push boundaries. She was a co-founder of the San Francisco Art Dealers Association and the California chapter of ArtTable. She will be fondly remembered for her straight talk and intense loyalty to artists.

D.A., as she liked to be called, was a mainstay at SFAI events dating back to the 1960s when she was involved with the Women’s Council. In her later years, she still enjoyed visiting campus— cane in hand—and chatting with Jeff Gunderson and others about art and current events. Her great enthusiasm for SFAI was matched by her generous philanthropy. Her support continues on through a legacy gift she made as part of her estate plan.

Student-Run Newspaper Revived After Thirty Years This fall two undergraduate students, Max Blue (BA History and Theory of Contemporary Art candidate, 2018), Editor in Chief, and Cera Deibel (BA History and Theory of Contemporary Art candidate, 2018), Assistant Editor, launched a new student newspaper SFAeye. Their mission is to keep an “eye” out and make SFAI history in real time. The name comes from a student-run newspaper created by SFAI alumni 30 years ago. How did you unearth that publication and what about it inspired you? Max Blue (MB): I started trying to pool together people who would be interested in reconstituting a publication that would be more along the lines of a traditional school newspaper. School newspapers exist and they’re possible. Trying to found a publication with little or no direct foundation seemed a lot more difficult to do. I work at the library with Jeff Gunderson sitting right behind me, so I turned around and asked him to let me look in the archives. He pulled out boxes of old back issues. There have been several, from the 1940s to the 1990s. Not all of them were SFAeye; the last Eye was in the 1980s. There were some other good ones in there like The Philistine and 800. Cera Deibel (CD): After Max found SFAeye, he threw the name at me. I’m a sucker for puns. It’s just an excellent name. SFAeye was founded in 1973 by Rance Haig. It spurred from a newsletter that was just called the SUC Newsletter for the student council. Then it turned into a newspaper in 1980. Other publications were a little more zany or experimental, which is great. We love that history. I think for our purposes, we really liked the idea of having a newspaper format that we could take in multiple directions. How do you decide what to include in SFAeye? CD: One thing that we found really important is that students often don’t really know things that are going on. Like the Graduate Center at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. I didn’t know, and I don’t think anybody on the undergraduate campus really knew that construction had started. That’s kind of a big deal. Why are these things not being talked about within the student body.

MB: Another great example of that is Cera did very close coverage of the presidential search. I heard all around, up until the the week that the candidates came to present on campus, students didn’t even know that we were in the market for a new president. CD: We also have a focus on exemplifying or showcasing student work. Each issue profiles faculty and staff, as well as includes exhibition reviews. Those are our three main focuses: current events on campus, showcasing student work, and then, connecting to some of the culture and the history of SFAI.

I would hope that students take away the feeling of ownership over their own community and the newspaper as a way to vocalize themselves in that democracy.–Max Blue What do you hope students will take away from SFAeye? MB: I hope they take something away, but I also hope that they give something back to it. Which is not to say that I hope that they give something back to me or for my sense of fulfillment. It’s so that they give something back for their community and for themselves. I think it’s about the community and it’s about implementing something that should already have existed and had existed in the past. I would hope that students take away the feeling of ownership over their own community and the newspaper as a way to vocalize themselves in that democracy.
