DZINE Gallery - Burning Bright
DZINE, 128 Utah Street, San Francisco - FREE
DZINE Gallery is pleased to present the group exhibition, BURNING BRIGHT, with an opening night reception on April 28. Curated by Philip Bewley, the exhibition is a result of recent conversations with local artists who are refocusing their practice in a time of political upheaval. The work produced for this show reflects their process of looking inward and expressing their own personal, spiritual and political voices. During the opening night reception, the award-winning San Francisco contemporary ballet company, Imagery, will premiere a site-specific performance by choreographer Amy Seiwert, inaugurating the company’s six-month residency at DZINE.

Pop-up performances will happen each hour at approximately :15 and :45 (6:15, 6:45 etc).
