San Francisco artist Lindsey White launches the inaugural exhibition for Premiere Jr., a new project space on a 6-by-12-foot billboard in the Inner Sunset. Drawing from her ongoing investigation into the visual language of comedians and magicians, White’s photo-based billboard features objects used for costume or disguise. The objects float detached from any human figure, leaving one to guess at both the identity of the owner and the persona they intend to assume. The artwork is completed by an audio piece accessible via a toll-free phone number, to be revealed only when viewing the billboard in person.
Premiere Jr. is best seen during daylight hours from the southwest corner of 7th Avenue and Irving Street, just outside the Fireside Bar.
February 9–April 19, 2020
Opening: Sunday, February 9, 2–5pm
Billboard location: 624 Irving Street
