Southern Exposure and The Long Conversation Artistic Exhibition
Organized in conjunction with Southern Exposure, The Long Conversation features actions, videos, performances, installations and events presented both on and off-site. All the contributing Bay Area artists' practices are rooted in the strategies of the West Coast, alternative, idea-based, experimental and time-based artwork pioneered in the 1970s. Work from Spark featured artists include: David Ireland, Paul Kos, and Nathan Lynch. This cross-generational project includes artists working in the Bay Area since the 1970s as well as a new generation of artists staking a claim within experimental, conceptual and engaged methods.
