An ArtPoint Educational Experience
ArtPoint presents a special night of music, art, and education at the Legion of Honor. The evening will begin with wine, small bites, and music from the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars while you view artist Lynn Hershman Leeson’s newly commissioned work, VertiGhost.
At 7:30 pm, Lynn Hershman Leeson and curator-in-charge of contemporary art and programming, Claudia Schmuckli, will be in conversation discussing VertiGhost. The exhibition is designed to draw the viewer into a meditation about notions of authenticity and the construction of identity. Inspired by the Legion of Honor’s role as a location for Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958), Hershman Leeson explores the tension at the core of Vertigo between the difficulty or lack of desire to distinguish between reality and fiction versus the pursuit of truth.
