Vanguard Revisited: Black Power Black Futures
 Jan 21 — April 7, 2019

Opening Reception: January 26 | 5–8pm

“The San Francisco Art Institute in conjunction with the University of California, Santa Cruz will exhibit the photographic essay, BLACK PANTHERS, 1968 by Ruth-Marion Baruch and Pirkle Jones. Initially shown at the DeYoung Museum from Dec 1968 through Feb 1969, these images have not been exhibited since, and the SFAI students working on this exhibition through Jeff Gunderson’s Collaborative Practices class are also picking a number of photos from the rolls of the photographers to reprint that have never been exhibited. “
