This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Dialogues in Drawing :
Through a wide range of works, this group exhibition explores the “struggles and victories” of women artists in times of deeply contested identity politics, political upheaval and social turbulence. The roster takes no prisoners and includes work by an incredible array of artists, including Amy Cutler, Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle, Alison Saar, Adrian Piper and Shinique Smith, among many others.
