ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND features early and formative work by five artists—Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri—who began their careers in the early 1990s in San Francisco’s Mission District and, by the early aughts, had been identified and celebrated as key members of the so-called Mission School.
The Mission School has garnered cult-like status over the last two decades and is known for its celebration of social art-making, community, folk art, nostalgia for the obsolete, low-production values, and “street” aesthetics.
