AdvertisementSF Artists Alumni (SFAA) and San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) proudly present "Three Turns", a juried exhibition of video works by SFAI alumni artists. Featuring 26 artists, "Three Turns" stems from the concept that engaging artworks provide a viewer with three different entry points, prompting a deeper exploration into the work itself. Projected on the historic SFAI Tower at 800 Chestnut Street, which houses the Institution’s 150 year old archive, "Three Turns" will echo the notion of traveling three turns in time and space by showing the selected alumni video works on the Tower in dialogue with video works selected from the SFAI archive.
Each night, each rotation of works will be looped, and the evening will include brief programming highlighting artists and jurors participating in the exhibition.

SFAI Archive Film:
Steven Arnold: The Liberation of Mannique Mechanique (1967), 14:43 MIN
A haunting, genuinely decadent work about mannequins that may be real and girls that may be models, journeying through strange universes possible self-discovery. An exorbitant, perverse sensibility informs the ambiguous images and events.
