    San Francisco Art Institute: Mel Ziegler - A Living Thing; Ghosts of the Tower

    Comment by AB: Mel Ziegler collected distressed American flags from all fifty states which he acquired from the owners in exchange for new ones. Those flags form the backdrop for his installation, A Living Thing, a space where people from various backgrounds can come to voice their opinions, share thoughts and perspectives, and otherwise dialogue with one another, in hopes of realizing some sense of commonality in these distressing times. On display in the upstairs gallery are stacked file boxes of reference materials, and posters and broadsides from the SFAI library documenting the institute's nearly 150 year history, all of it soon to be digitized. Look but don't touch.

    Leica Store Gallery with Peter Fetterman Gallery: Henri Cartier-Bresson

    Comment by AB: Survey of over fifty gelatin silver prints hand-signed by the photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). Some are "printed later", in other words they're later printings of photographs taken at earlier dates. For those of you keeping score at home, purist period photography collectors far prefer (if not insist on) vintage original or early printings only, not later ones.
