guest blogger • arden sherman • the 770 show

from san francisco's sunny mission district, this week's posts are from curator arden sherman's current project, the 770 show, where seven artists were invited to spend time in an iconic bookshop's stacks, discovering the wealth of ideas that present themselves when organization does not follow tradition. from the huge quantity of subject matter on hand, the artists mined the bookstore for images and responded to the found pictures through photography. taking up the complicated idea of order and organization through the simple act of selection and interpretation, the site acted as an integral part of staging the exhibition. throughout the week, arden will be posting the artists' work and projects from the 770 show in this online installment.
