Making of a Beautiful Bridge (Japan)

BAPC members will exhibit at the annual Photo Yokohama Festival in Yokohama, Japan. Up to 40,000 people attend for this week of exhibitions, conferences and other events.

We will have a group exhibition with an updated, smaller version of our Places Of Change exhibition and 6 of our members will show their work individually (Rose Borden, Adrienne Defendi, Steve Goldband & Ellen Konar, Ken Hoffman,  Ari Salomon).

This is part of a larger exhibition called Making of a Beautiful Bridge and organized by SAMURAI FOTO which is a member-based photo collective.

AnthropoScene

Exhibition: January 27 – February 17, 2018
Location:  ARC Gallery, 1246 Folsom Street, San Francisco, CA

Opening Reception: January 27, 7 pm – 9 pm
Closing Reception: Saturday, February 17, 12 pm – 3 pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, February 17, 2 pm


If the industrial-sized mistakes of our Anthropocene period, i.e., the geologic era marked by human activity, seem to augur eco-catastophe, the humanized landscape still affords us visions of beauty and even transcendence (and sometimes humor). The photographers of AnthropoScene peruse the contemporary world, finding meaning and even moments of grace within the dynamic human landscape of global capitalism. ​

Curator: DeWitt Cheng
