Jointly organized by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), Public Intimacy: Art and Other Ordinary Acts in South Africa brings together 25 artists and collectives who disrupt expected images of a country known largely through its apartheid history. Public Intimacy was not deliberately timed to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of South Africa’s first fully democratic elections. Instead, the exhibition presents another critical arc that existed but was possibly overlooked during apartheid and which has emerged in recent years as a dominant approach—the expression of the poetics and politics of the “ordinary act.
