Transmitting photographs from mail art to social networks

snap + share, a new exhibition curated by Clément Chéroux, is opening on March 30 at SFMOMA.

The exhibition snap+share gives visitors a new way to visualize — and experience — how photographs have become so ubiquitous in our daily lives. Whether through early examples of 1960s and ’70s mail art, physical piles of pictures uploaded to the Internet over a 24-hour period, or a working refrigerator that allows participatory meme-making, visitors can trace the evolution of sharing photographs.

Spanning the history of mail art to social networks, the show presents a variety of artists working in various media, from framed paper-based art to immersive installations. Some of these artists include On Kawara, Ray Johnson, Moyra Davey, Erik Kessels, Corinne Vionnet, and David Horvitz. Exploring how networks are created through the act of sending images out into the world, this exhibition reveals just how those networks have changed in the age of the Internet.

Tha following artists are featured in the exhibition: Thomas Bachler, Ray Johnson, Aram Bartholl, On Kawara, Joseph Beuys, Erik Kessels, Moyra Davey, William Larson, Jan Dibbets, Eva and Franco Mattes, Walker Evans, Peter Miller, Jeff Guess, Ken Ohara, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Stephen Shore, Kate Hollenbach, Endre Tót, David Horvitz, Corinne Vionnet.

snap + share will be on show from March 30, 2019 to August 4, 2019.

Member Preview Days are Thursday, March 28, 2019, 10 a.m.–9 p.m. (Lounge: 5 p.m.–9 p.m.), Friday, March 29, 2019, 10 a.m.–5 p.m., and Saturday, March 30, 2019, 10 a.m.–noon.
