Yerba Buena Center for the Arts: Lynn Hershman Leeson - Civic Radar
Comment by AB: An over half-century retrospective of art by Lynn Hershman Leeson is conclusive proof of her incredible vision, range and versatility. The emphasis is on photography, video, audio and installation... but plenty of works in other mediums are on display as well. Best show I've seen here in a while. Don't miss it. Rich, diverse and rewarding.
