Invincible Summer at Minnesota Street Project

Jun 20 — Sep 30, 2020

Check gallery website for hours and additional info

Invincible Summer is the first group show mounted by the galleries at the Minnesota Street Project. It began as our response to the circumstances brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, both in theme and in its physical and virtual configurations. Each gallery has contributed works from its roster of artists in response to a line in an Albert Camus essay, a line that beautifully and succinctly expresses hopefulness in the face of challenge. In this show, Summer is both a metaphor and a way to mark where we as a community find ourselves at this moment.
Participating SFADA galleries are:

This exhibition is viewable online at Minnesota Street Project Adjacent, or you can visit in person with an appointment.
Invincible Summer has been installed in the Atrium at 1275 Minnesota Minnesota Street in San Francisco, a space that is large enough to accommodate socially-distanced viewing, once that is allowed and for as long as it is required. In essence, the galleries in the building have turned themselves inside out — placing art on their exterior walls in shared space. The show was also conceived from the start to live here in virtual space, both to allow a show at all when it can’t be seen in person and to expand its reach when it can.
