Capp Street Project: Jeanne Dunning

November 30, 2005 to February 18, 2006

Jeanne Dunning's Capp Street Project elaborates on her continuing investigation of representations of formlessness that evoke disturbing corporeal associations.

Centering around a series of large-scale photographs depicting a monochrome color field (composed of smashed stewed tomatoes), Dunning's installation explores boundaries between the sublime and the grotesque, while playing on our perceptions and misperceptions of images connoting physical vulnerability.

Generous support for the Capp Street Project has been provided by the Nimoy Foundation. Lead support for the CCA Wattis Institute has been provided by Phyllis C. Wattis and Judy and Bill Timken. Additional support has also been provided by the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation, Grants for the Arts/ San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund, Ann Hatch and Paul Discoe, and the CCA Curator's Forum.
