Last month, when KQED Arts reported on the alarming disappearance of three full-time curatorial positions from three Bay Area arts institutions, there was an outpouring of public outcry, and a noticeable lack of response from the institutions themselves.

One month later, the San Francisco Art Institute opens its doors on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 7–8:30pm to host a “A Very Crypto Town Hall,” a public event discussing the past, present and future of the school’s exhibitions program. Katie Hood Morgan, SFAI’s former curator of exhibitions and public programs, moderates the evening.

The lineup includes Julian Wong-Nelson, SFAI’s archives assistant and digital specialist; Gordon Knox, president of SFAI; and Will Brown (David Kasprzak, Jordan Stein and Lindsey White), the artists responsible for Ether, the current exhibition/cryptocurrency grant project. A open forum will follow their presentations.

While Will Brown will unveil the application process for the Ethereum-funded grant they’ve established to fund SFAI student, staff or faculty projects, they encourage all those interested in the future of the school’s exhibitions program, or in the state of the Bay Area’s arts scene writ large, to attend Tuesday’s event.

“It’s an opportunity to have their voices heard and to hear the voices of the administration in an open and candid way,” Kasprzak says. Such opportunities don’t appear often.
