        In a city with a transient population, like San Francisco, it's uncommon to meet someone who has lived here since birth. Populated by foreigners passing through, high-tech commuters, and more dogs than children, the percentage of home-owners is well below the national average. Yet despite an ability to identify such tendencies, cities like San Francisco (or London) remain unstable and elusive, subject to physical as well as ideological shifts and disappearances—whether sudden and violent like an earthquake or gradual like the fading of a memory. The exhibition City of Disappearances dramatizes this shared resemblance of the world's cities by borrowing the title of Iain Sinclair's psycho-geographic "anthology of absence" written by and about London. The exhibition imagines a transposition and exchange of the living-imaginary of London conjured in Sinclair's book with the fictions and myths of San Francisco. This conceptual and metaphorical exchange will be followed by a real one as the exhibition travels to London in 2014, where it will be renamed Infinite City after Rebecca Solnit's atlas of San Francisco. Like the contributions to Sinclair's book, there are many "cities of shadows" that appear in the exhibition; recognizable as corporeal vanishings, filmic echoes from the past dissolving in the present, and contaminated memories. The photographs, videos, painting and sculptures evoke the personal experience of the individual in the city, cinematic fictions of the city as idea, and aesthetic distillations of the glow and texture of the urban. Whether we observe the formation of cities by their inhabitants or the formation of inhabitants by the cities in which they live, we recognize the city as a primary dilemma, a tension that informs all the works on view. This exhibition is curated by Joseph Del Pesco of the Kadist Art Foundation and Elizabeth Neilson of the Zabludowicz Collection Featured artists: Michel Auder, Slater Bradley, Martin Boyce, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, John Menick, Enrique Metinides, Yelena Popova, Amie Siegel, Kelley Walker This exhibition is made possible through the support and collaboration of the Kadist Art Foundation and the Zabludowicz Collection, and the CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Arts.

                Anthony Discenza Meets Mungo Thomson Meets Harrell Fletcher Meets Alicia McCarthy Meets Eleanor Antin Meets Jason Meadows Meets Rodney Graham Meets Pascal Shirley Meets Ari Marcopoulos Meets Paul McCarthy Meets James Welling Meets Catherine Opie Meets Tammy Rae Carland Meets Ed Ruscha Route 3: Anthony Discenza Meets Mungo Thomson Meets Harrell Fletcher Meets Alicia McCarthy Meets Eleanor Antin Meets Jason Meadows Meets Rodney Graham Meets Pascal Shirley Meets Ari Marcopoulos Meets Paul McCarthy Meets James Welling Meets Catherine Opie Meets Tammy Rae Carland Meets Ed Ruscha is the third exhibition in an annual series to be drawn from the 101 Collection based in San Francisco. It examines the essential nature of an art collection — an accumulation of objects gathered for personal interest, research, or presentation — and attempts to provide an alternative organizational strategy to that of a thematic structure. The curator, David Kasprzak (MA Curatorial Practice 2011) has completely relinquished the decision-making process, instead inviting the artists in the 101 Collection to select the works themselves. In addition, he delegated his curatorial tasks to colleagues within the Wattis and CCA. The chief preparator, who typically follows the installation plan and instruction of a curator, has installed the exhibition. The institution’s designer has created the graphic identity. All texts have been generated by the institution’s managing editor. The exhibition is intended as an experiment in structural and organizational strategy, and responds to two questions. Firstly, will a collection of predetermined artworks ultimately produce the same visual and contextual outcome, regardless of the decisions made on a curatorial level? Secondly, what outcome does an exhibition organized by multiple authors working independently of each other produce? Kasprzak holds an M.A in Curatorial Practice from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco and a B.F.A. in Visual Arts from Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio. Kasprzak’s recent curatorial projects include Better a Live Ass Than a Dead Lion at Eli Ridgway Gallery in San Francisco (2011) and God Only Knows Who the Audience Is at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco (2011). 101 Collection: Route 3 is sponsored by Kadist Art Foundation
