John de Fazio

“Superobjects: Subversive Souvenirs”

San Francisco Art Institute

800 Chestnut St, San Francisco, CA 94133

July 25, 6:30 pm


This Friday, July 25, the San Francisco Art Institute welcomes artists John de Fazio as a guest speaker in their Graduate Lecture Series. de Fazio creates commemorative sculptures that reference and reflect upon contemporary life, depicting figures and elements of politics and mass media with both humor and sincerity. de Fazio’s sculptures take their forms from ornate historical and ceremonial objects, and their content from the present; the results are a record of our time, in the physical language of the anthropological display. Three of de Fazio’s “superobjects” were recently acquired by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.


The lecture begins at 6:30 pm. Please RSVP on the SFAI website.


Please note that Saturday, July 26 is also the last day of “Wrong’s What I Do Best,” the current exhibition in the SFAI Walter and McBean Galleries.
