Introduced by Curator Natasha Boas

Oakland-based artist Alicia McCarthy’s work emerged out of the punk street culture and folk ethos of the mid-1990s Mission District. She continues to incorporate found materials and floating snippets of text—“the real you,” “the way in is the way out,” “o’amor”—into her col- laged and abstract paintings on paper and found wood. Her work then and now emphasizes the artist’s hand and a paradoxical pairing of formal skill and crude immediacy.

McCarthy will discuss her recent work as well as her early career and friendship with Ruby Neri and other Mission School artists.

Join SFAI for a reception in the SFAI Café from 6:30–7:30 pm before the lecture. The Walter and McBean Galleries will also be open until 7:30 pm.

____________

ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND features early and formative work by five artists—Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri—who began their careers in the early 1990s in San Francisco’s Mission District and, by the early aughts, had been identified and celebrated as key members of the so-called Mission School.
