With the opening of new offices in San Francisco in 2011, the Contemporary Art Society curated a collection featuring a selection of established and emerging artists who live in and around San Francisco.
The collection is unified through the sense of memory and nostalgia that can be triggered by specific places and actions. Many of the artists explore childhood memories and experiences, remembered journeys through the American landscape or icons of popular culture as a way of understanding the world of the present. The works capture a moment in time, whether from a world of the past, the present or one that exists only in the imagination.
The collection includes works by: Yee Jan Bao, James Dewhirst and Seth Dickerman.
