The End of the Start: Ten Years of the Center

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

In honor of its 10th Year Anniversary, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts proudly presents, The End of the Start: 10 Years of the Center, an exhilarating look at the accomplishments of the Center's past and its trajectory into the future.

The exhibition will center on a unique series of ten projects that exemplify our commitment to collaboration, cross-disciplinary thinking, and inclusion of all aspects of visual culture, not just the fine arts. The projects will be created by a series of artist teams consisting of one who has previously exhibited at the Center and one who has never before been presented in our Galleries. These collaborative projects will celebrate the past while looking toward the future, highlighting the processes of cooperation and interaction—values at the very core of the Center's spirit. Also presented in the Galleries will be a series of performative events and installations by artists such as Guillermo Gomex-Peña and MATMOS, adding complexity to the ways in which we approach art in the context of gallery space.

Artists participating:
Carrie Mae Weems & Pam Vander Zwan
Ruben Ortiz Torres & Jimmy Mendiola
Barry McGee & Josh Lazcano
Nayland Blake & Robert Crouch
Alicia McCarthy & Ruby Neri
Will Rogan & Lucy Pullen
Patty Chang & Francios-Xavier Courreges
