The San Francisco Art Institute is proud to announce the release of a new book, Paradigm Shifts: Walter and McBean Galleries Exhibitions and Public Programs, San Francisco Art Institute (2006-2011), which collects images, texts, and ephemera from SFAI's exhibitions and public programs over the past six years. During this time and under the direction of internationally renowned curator Hou Hanru, the Walter and McBean Galleries have developed an innovative approach to curating and public programming. In 600+ pages of color images and text, Paradigm Shifts reflects a vision and strategy that brings contemporary art practice into dialogue-and confrontation-with the effects of globalization on our cultural lives and daily existence. The book is organized into sections that illustrate the five axes of investigation that guide SFAI's programming: Global Figures, New Models of Culture and Art Production, Pacific Perspectives, Acting Out in the City, and New Voices.
