2012 Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art Award Winners

In a departure from traditional gallery presentations, the winners of the 2012 SECA Art Award were commissioned to create site-responsive works. This evening the artists discuss their projects: Zarouhie Abdalian’s sound work in Frank H. Ogawa Plaza in Oakland, Josh Faught’s textile sculptures at the Neptune Society Columbarium, Jonn Herschend’s video on the “evacuation” of SFMOMA, and David Wilson’s trails and installations around the city. The artists are joined by Michelle Tea for a larger conversation about public art.
