This seminal exhibition takes place over two sites: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Eelyn will meet with some of the curators and her research will focus on the challenges of exhibiting social practice, especially retrospectively. Eelyn will also be visiting artist Carolina Caycedo in Los Angeles. The learning from the trip will inform Eelyn's work with Social Art Network and help shape ideas for sharing practice at a Social Art Biennale.
