at the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery was a personal, powerful statement on behalf of the Bay Area’s Iranian community (its proximity to 9/11 was coincidental). This year’s Cultural Equity grant recipient, Hemami relates their stories through dark, layered transparent images and text on reflective surfaces that add the viewer to the mix. A website extends the project beyond the gallery space. The exhibition’s on view until October 12th.
