Art of Change 2022

A night celebrating artists that change the world.

Join us on August 6 for an evening of art, conversation, food – and revolution!

SFAI is excited to bring back Art of Change, a dynamic evening celebrating catalytic artists. We are thrilled to welcome artist and SFAI alumnus Dread Scott for a community dinner in our beautiful gallery.

This fundraising event supports SFAI’s international residency program and launch of our stipend for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) creative practitioners! By purchasing a ticket to Art of Change, you fund an artist’s essential needs such as housing, studio supplies, and food — as well as our monthly artist talks, exhibitions, and our signature community event SFAI140.

Tickets are $250/person, $1400 for package of 6 tickets. All proceeds support SFAI’s international residency program.

Proof of vaccination required

Dread Scott is an interdisciplinary artist whose art encourages viewers to re-examine ideals of American society. In 1989, the US Senate outlawed his artwork and President Bush declared it “disgraceful” because of its transgressive use of the American flag. His work has been exhibited at The Whitney Museum, MoMA/PS1, The Walker Art Center, in galleries and on street corners. He is a 2021 John Simon Guggenheim Fellow and has also received fellowships form Open Society Foundations and United States Artists. Artnet.com highlighted his 2019 performance, Slave Rebellion Reenactment, as one of the most important artworks of the decade. Dread will talk about his revolutionary art that is rooted in themes including, but not limited to, American identity and patriotism, the continuum connecting the Civil Rights movement to contemporary Black Lives Matter, and imagining a world free of oppression and exploitation.
