Kinship: Photography and Connection

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Kinship: Photography and Connection, features six contemporary photographers whose work results from deep relationships including friendship, ties to place, to community and beyond.

"One of SFMOMA's key institutional priorities is to foster deep connections with our community. Works from the diverse range of artists presented in Kinship beautifully illustrate the power of meaningful relationships and encourage connections with the art and with one another," said Christopher Bedford, Helen and Charles Schwab Director of SFMOMA. "The distinct perspectives of this group of artists -- from California and beyond -- come together in celebration of kinship, and the many ways it can manifest."

"After three years of feeling distant from people during the COVID-19 pandemic, I respond to the genuine feeling and connection to others in this work, and I hope visitors will, too," added Erin O'Toole, Curator and Head of Photography at SFMOMA.

ABOUT THE EXHBITION

In Kinship: Photography and Connection, each of the six artists will have a dedicated gallery to present photographs from a single series or a selection of work drawn from across their practice. Kinship: Photography and Connection brings together over 80 captivating works by photographers who share a special affinity with their subjects: Farah Al Qasimi, Mercedes Dorame, Jarod Lew, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Alessandra Sanguinetti and Deanna Templeton. Whether the connections explored in their photographs are familial, platonic, romantic, cultural or geographic, relationships are fundamental to each artist's practice. Four of the six photographers -- Dorame, Sanguinetti, Sepuya and Templeton -- live in California.
