Pledges of Allegiance
Nov 08-Mar 13
The public art project Pledges of Allegiance was organized by Creative Time, a New Yorkbased nonprofit organization committed to working with artists on contemporary dialogues, debates, and dreams. The project invites cultural institutions to participate in raising flags created by acclaimed contemporary artists to inspire community and conversation while supporting artists at the forefront of socially engaged art-making. A new flag will be hung at the entryway of CCA's main entrance courtyard in San Francisco each month starting in November. Each of the fourteen flags identifies an issue the artist is passionate about and will provide opportunities for dialogue about pressing contemporary topics. The artists represented are Alex Da Corte, Jeremy Deller, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Ann Hamilton, Robert Longo, Josephine Meckseper, Vik Muniz, Jayson Musson, Ahmet Ogut, Yoko Ono, Trevor Paglen, Pedro Reyes, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Nari Ward.
