Time Bomb!

San Francisco Art Institute

This evening’s program presents works concerning fear, conversion experiences, and family values. Time Bomb! and I Want to Meet You, Dear Lady by John Muse and Jeanne C. Finley are works in progress being developed during an artist-in-residency at Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center in collaboration with their Work Practice and Technology group. Time Bomb! explores a young girl’s decision to take Jesus into her heart during a Baptist Retreat. …Dear Lady follows the story of a Jewish family’s encounter with a Klansman. The third work by Finley, Conversations Across the Bosphorous, weaves together the lives of two Muslim women and reveals how their changing relationship to their faith reflects the greater cultural and political struggles in contemporary Istanbul. Please join the artists for a BYOB gathering after the show.
