Jenkins Johnson Gallery, San Francisco, is proud to present its first solo exhibition by interdisciplinary West Coast artist Sadie Barnette. FROM HERE will feature drawings, collage, photography, and found objects, exploring the abstraction of urban space and the transcendence of the mundane to the imaginative. The works are inspired by "Compland", an imagined cultural space that blends the cities of Compton and Oakland. The show also includes works based on an FBI surveillance file from the 1960s-70s about her father, a co-founder of the Black Panther Party's Compton chapter. The exhibit coincides with and pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party.
