“Two Decades: Boxing and Costa Rica”, Steve Molnar, photography, 60SIX pop up at 455A Valencia st. SF

Mar 11 — Apr 30, 2023

60SIX presents work by Steve Molnar for a fifth exhibition and second solo photography show. In “Two Decades” the artist exhibits photographs in an ongoing series started in 1998 documenting boxing, primarily in the Bay Area. He captured moments in amateur boxing in the East Oakland Boxing Association, a Police Activities League gym in Redwood City, Golden Gloves competitions in the Cow Palace, and Junior Olympic events at various locations.

In a new series beginning in 2021, Molnar took his lens to Costa Rica on a farm established by Francisca Ramirez and other Nicaraguan campesino leaders as a place for Nicaraguans who were forced to leave their country to avoid arrest.

The artist meticulously prints all his photographs himself in black and white, gelatin silver format. His work reflects a singular synthesis of intimacy and engagement with the cultures and subjects he photographs.

Pop up artist reception Saturday, March 11, 5-8pm at 455A Valencia st. SF 94103
Afterward an abbreviated show of this work can be seen by appointment at 12 Elgin Park, SF 94103 through April 30. 415-577-4396
