Join us to celebrate the opening of Jill Magid: The Proposal.

The Proposal presents a climactic moment within Jill Magid's extended, multimedia artwork, The Barragán Archives, which examines the legacy of Mexican architect and Pritzker Prize-winner Luis Barragán (1902–1988). The multi-year project poses piercing, radical, and pragmatic questions about the forms of power, public access, and copyright that construct artistic legacy.

The Proposal is commissioned by San Francisco Art Institute and curated by Hesse McGraw, SFAI Vice President for Exhibitions and Public Programs.
