Untitled (Tripod series) 1976
8-bridges, a new online initiative created to highlight artists and galleries in the San Francisco Bay Area, launched on October 1, 2020. 8-bridges will present monthly exhibitions by Bay Area galleries, with a particular focus on artists and conversations relevant to the region. The platform will feature eight new presentations each month, and each cycle will also spotlight a local institution.
The Jay DeFeo exhibition Transcending Definition: Jay DeFeo in the 1970s at Gagosian will be featured in the inaugural presentation.
