RSVP Rundown: Luxury City Tour, Sutter Gallery Exhibits

Whether it’s your first time living in San Francisco or you’ve been around a while, there’s still always something new to discover and enjoy.

At Academy of Art University, we take the philosophy of having appropriate work-life balance very seriously. We also believe that learning about art need not be confined within classroom walls, which is why we’re always excited to set up campus events that you all can enjoy.

That said, while we literally just opened classes today, it doesn’t mean it’s too early to give you a fun and cool line-up of things to do, places to be, whether inside our campus or out in the city.

Check out some choices we’ve readied this week for you below:

What:  Inception by Colin Wang
When: September 6, Friday (Reception)
Where: 625 Gallery, 625 Sutter

Inception began as a fine art project involving origami, or paper art. For artist Colin Wang, these origami structures he created are representations of his personality: straightforward and simple. The origami alone, however, is not enough to express his personality as there is more to him than that.

And so Colin decided to complement the origami art with photography, choosing “to build an inner world with the strong contrast of light and shadow.”

Describing himself as also being a sharp person, “it made me encounter a lot of setbacks and criticisms, but I always adhere to their own views. That’s why the corners in the photos are very sharp.”

Inception runs throughout the month of September.

What:  Growing Up by Carol He
When: September 6, Friday (Reception)
Where: 688 Gallery, 688 Sutter

It truly is difficult to be far away from all that is familiar and comforting, as anyone who’s ever had to move or uproot themselves only know too well. For Carol He (MA, School of Photography), wallowing in nostalgia was holding her back from facing her present realities. Growing Up is her way of going back to explore her past.

“The process of changing my mind is what I want to express in my work, which is also the process of me distinguishing my memories from reality. I do not want to be addicted to my past, but I still wish to preserve ad explore my memories through this project.”

Growing Up runs throughout the month of September.
