The Gallery at Intersection develops and presents brand new installations and exhibitions that provide a resource of visual ideas and a platform for communications; art that transgresses boundaries of culture and discipline; artists who define, interpret and help to transform society through their work.
Intersection presents a wide variety of work – work by prominent established artists who have shown work in major galleries and museums, local emerging artists, and concept driven, Intersection-curated shows. Exhibitions are always programmed with events (artist’s talks, panel discussions, film & video screenings, performances, critics’ roundtables) that highlight the inter-disciplinary and inter-cultural nature of the work.
Recent highlights include solo exhibitions by Ala Ebtekar, April Banks, Hasan Elahi, Lebbeus Woods, Migdalia Valdes, Conrad Atkinson, Marcos Ramirez ERRE, Evan Bissell, Victor Cartagena, Taraneh Hemami, Binh Danh & Elizabeth Moy, Weston Teruya & Michele Carlson, Claudia Bernardi, Sama-sama, an international public art exchange between artists from San Francisco and Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and several large group exhibitions including Battle Emblems, Blueprints, Paper Bullets, Terror?, Don’t Try This at Home, and The Prison Project.
“The space is populated with artists from the community whose priorities are not to converse exclusively with other artists or the art world, but with people who want to use the culture of art as a catalyst to communicate with the community around them. This has been the basis of Intersection for over forty years.” – Sarah Lidgus, Afterimage: The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism

Ants in the City – Solo Exhibition by Su-Chen Hung
Intersection for the Arts presents Ants in the City, a solo exhibition project by San Francisco-based artist Su-Chen Hung that explores how humans interact within the urban landscape. 18th Century British poet William Blake wrote, “To see a world from a grain of sand,” and so Hung examines our world from the perspective of ants with this exhibition, comprised of three related video works and installations: Ants in the City; Kiss you, Honey; and Red Corner. Working with light, space, sound, movement, and stillness, Hung’s work is simple and elegant, accessible and contemplative. She has utilized a variety of media in both installation and performance contexts to investigate a diversity of social, cultural, and environmental concerns, and viewers often become performers in her work, intentionally or otherwise, completing and bringing the piece to artistic life. These works position ants as symbolic representations for humans, and their busy, scurrying movements as metaphors for the way we conduct our urban lives.
