Margaret Kilgallen | That's where the beauty is

That's where the beauty is. is the first big retrospective by artist Margaret Kilgallen (Washington, D.C., 1967 - San Francisco, 2001). This exhibition uses Kilgallen's exhibition history as a chronological red line, demonstrating the incredible visual complexity of Kilgallen's oeuvre. 

Kilgallen’s work is laced with historical developments. For example, in several works, she depicts signs and shop fronts from the Mission District, which hint at a history of migration, civil rights and The American Dream. Sometimes hopefully and sometimes harrowingly, this is contrasted with the contemporary reality of San Francisco: a city that suffered badly in the nineties from drugs problems, the AIDS epidemic, homelessness and decay.
