. . . seeing works by David Hammons in local collections, with Sampada Aranke
We can talk about art, read about art, write about art, but none of it is possible without looking at art.

Works by David Hammons are not always easy to see. First of all, he doesn't do many exhibitions and his work isn't included in many collections. Also, he's been known to present a work that is nothing other than a weather forecast, or to show a work that is covered by a curtain which can be lifted only by making an appointment.

Luckily, a few works are here in San Francisco, and we want to spend some time looking at them.

If you'd like to look at a work by David Hammons, hear an introduction by a collector, and have a group conversation, please sign up. Prof. Sampada Aranke, from SFAI, joins the group to give some broader context on Hammons's work.

Only 15-20 people can sign up for each visit, so reserve your spot early.
