矩阵277 grew out of a book being developed for the 150th anniversary by artist Nina Zurier (an SFAI alumna) and Jeff Gunderson and Becky Alexander, both librarians and archivists of the revered Bay Area school. Having undergone a calamitous period during the coronavirus pandemic, SFAI is in the process of reinventing itself. Thus, there is no better time to reflect on the legacy of the institution and the many artists who have studied there, worked as faculty, and helped shape Bay Area art communities. The project is the result of a creative collaboration with many individuals and organizations, including the Bay Area design firm MacFadden & Thorpe, April Martin, Genine Lentine, Rye Purvis, Sherwin Rio, and Christopher Williams. The exhibition website launches on September 23.
