"Reading Between the Lines" at Hashimoto Contemporary

SAN FRANCISCO - Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Reading Between the Lines, a group show curated by Anna Valdez. The exhibition features a dynamic roster of artists from the Bay Area and beyond, each connected through their work’s emblematic nature.

Reading Between the Lines surveys the contemporary artist’s use of language and symbol systems in their work to convey a particular way of seeing. Whether referencing the domestic space, the figure or through process driven work, each of these artists reference cultural ideologies to connect the viewer to their particular experiences of art production.


Alexis Arnold, Jonathan Chapline, Andy Decola, Leah Guadagnoli, Catherine Haggarty, Cathy Lu, Dan Perkins, Emil Robinson, Kaley Flowers, Meghan Jean Kinder, Paul Gagner, Polly Allison Shindler, Steven Vasquez Lopez, Sharona Eliassaft.

Please join us for Reading Between the Lines, opening Saturday, April 7 with an evening reception from 6pm - 9pm. The exhibition will be on view through April 28. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email us at info@hashimotocontemporary.com
