Asma Kazmi Exhibiting in side by side/in the world

Asma Kazmi is featured in the San Francisco Art Commission's latest show side by side/in the world.

The exhibition asks Californian artists to reflect on sanctuary. From the website:

The concept of "sanctuary city" has figured significantly in recent discussions about immigration, whereby sanctuary cities are framed as “pro-migrant,” particularly in opposition to federal policies that seek to limit asylum seeking. San Francisco became a Sanctuary City in 1990, joining a growing movement. The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Galleries’ new exhibition, side by side/in the world, curated by Jacqueline Francis and Kathy Zarur, takes inspiration from this history, and considers sanctuary relationally, both in the places we find it and the ways we make it.

Other artists include: Eddie Aparicio, Esther Elia, Sheila Ghidini, Yoon Lee, Crystal Liu, Lisa Solomon, Lauren A. Toomer, Alberto Toscano, and Pamela Z

side by side/in the world runs from July 12 to September 14, 2019.

Don't miss the opening reception on Friday, July 12, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
