Artwork for Bedrooms tells the story of eight artists living in San Francisco 2000–08, a period that until now has been framed by the Mission School, artists known for sprawling assemblages that took inspiration from graffiti culture. Artwork for Bedrooms draws a parallel narrative from the same moment of young artists who were similarly invested in “poor” materials, but who put them to work in more abstract, fragile, or conceptual ways.

Artwork for Bedrooms is curated by CCA’s Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice Class of 2018 Maddie Klett, Zhaoyu Lin, MK Meador, Cristiane Ulson Quercia, Rosa Tyhurst, and Qinyue Xu.
