Review: “Conversation 8: Harry Dodge and Alicia McCarthy” @ SFAC Gallery, San Francisco

You probably don’t need any excuse to hang out in a magnificent Beaux-Arts building from 1932, but if you need one more, it’s this: Alicia McCarthy and Harry Dodge, in dialogue at the War Memorial Veterans Building, across the street from City Hall in San Francisco. The Conversation series, launched by the San Francisco Arts Commission in 2005, pairs two artists across disciplines and geographical divides to show together. These pairings can be the bread-and-butter of a slide lecture in art history, but it always depends on the freshness of each ingredient. This, curated by Nancy Lim, has flavor.
