Tendergold Gallery was first introduced to IAMA in early 2018. The name pays homage to our ever-so-funky neighboring Tenderloin District. While it can undeniably be seen as dark and gritty, it also hosts some of San Francisco's most exciting underground art scenes and nightlife. #tendergold celebrates this by bringing art to the light of day from emerging artists, both internationally and from the Bay Area .
The Illusion of Control: Queer Landscapes
Artist Reception: Friday, June 14, 5 - 8 PM
exhibit on view june 7 - june 29, 2019
Suki Berry is a multidisciplinary artist, and the spotlight of our pride month showcase. Her work invites the viewer to savor luscious color, unbridled movement, and authentic spontaneity. Underneath her indulgent landscapes, is a complex deconstruction of what it means to experience the joys and sorrows of queer femininity. Altering shape and composition is a way of challenging attitudes, fears, and unwritten rules of our environment. Her work speaks of places unseen, but at the same time comforting and familiar, like memories of a place we feel we have been before but can't quite recall.
