Artists’ proposals include improving immigrant rights, commuting by jetpack, and improving transport systems. The exhibitions will feature the proposals (presented in a wide variety of media including video, sculpture, drawing and performance), and a catalog which will be handed to officials from each City government. Educational programs, free and open to the public, will play a substantial role in both cities.

Co-curated by Meg Shiffler and Justine Topfer

Every two years the SFAC Gallery will partner with an arts institution in global Sister Cities. The collaborative efforts will result in a visual art exhibition in each location.
