Mitchell-Innes & Nash is pleased to announce Amanda Ross-Ho's participation in Wallworks at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Wallworks is the highly anticipated curatorial debut of Betti-Sue Hertz, YBCA's newly appointed Director of Visual Arts. For the exhibition, YBCA commissions local, regional and international artists to use the literal aspects of YBCA's architectural space, built in 1993 by acclaimed architect Fumihiko Maki, as a starting point to create new large-scale works directly on the walls of both its galleries and its public spaces. Participating artists in Wallworks are Makoto Aida, Edgar Arceneaux, Chris Finley, Tillman Kaiser, Odili Donald Odita, Amanda Ross-Ho, Yehudit Sasportas and Leslie Shows. The artists crisscross between the visual and tactile qualities of the material that they use, and their interface with an audience conceived in the manner of a skeptic. Drawing the vast encyclopedia of signs inwards, their visualizations are subjective readings of spatial contingencies, as if groping around in the dark for glimmers of what is to come next.
