Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Presents Agents of Change: What Follows Will Follow II


SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- YBCA is showing an exhibition by Berlin-based artist Nina Beier in its 2010_11 season of Big Ideas. Beier presents a new exhibition entitled Agents of Change: What Follows Will Follow II. This new work included a solo performance by former San Francisco Ballet principal dancer Muriel Maffre, a music performance by local sound artists Great Willow, and a visual arts installation of Beier’s photographs.
