The San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries presents FAX.

FAX is an evolving exhibition from the Independent Curators International that began in New York in 2009 and has been traveling ever since.

The SFAC Galleries invited 22 Bay Area artists to reconceive the fax machine as a thinking and drawing tool. Each participating artist transmitted their fax-based work to the gallery via a working fax line. The results are displayed alongside works by artists, graphic designers, architects and other cultural producers from around the globe.
Curated by João Ribas
