SFMOMA Presents Rebecca Solnit’s Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas


SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- From July through December 2010, SFMOMA‘s Live Art program invites San Francisco’s own Rebecca Solnit to lead a thematic tour of the Bay Area with Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas, a printing and public project by the acclaimed writer. Solnit’s forthcoming book by the same title reimagines traditional mapmaking to chart not just space and place but also people and time in 22 inventive maps. SFMOMA has partnered with Solnit and a range of collaborators to issue six broadside prints (one a month through December) based on seven maps. Each map is joined to a series of Live Art events—both at the museum and out in the community—featuring many of Solnit’s Infinite City cohorts and special guests, such as artists Sandow Birk, Jaime Cortez, Amy Franceschini, Guillermo Gomez-Peña, and Trevor
