Julian Guthrie of the San Francisco Chronicle visited the Artist Fellows on July 8 for their second showcase together. Throughout their fellowship, Kevin Epps, Campo Santo (directed by Sean San José), and Todd T. Brown will present pieces of their works in progress.
Renee Baldocchi explained this project to the Chronicle: “One of the unique components of this [program] is that the artists are actually coming into the museum and creating the work while they are in the museum. They are sharing the process with visitors as they create new work. The newness is really that most of the time, museums bring artists in after the work has been created.”
The series continues tonight, July 29, with Campo Santo performing a piece of “Block by Block,” paintings that will become part of the exhibit “Inheritance” by Todd T. Brown, and a peek into “Fam Bam,” the new film by Kevin Epps. It is thrilling to see what the artists have accomplished to date and to imagine what will be coming in the near future.
