Ruth’s Table is pleased to present Generation: The Roots of Making in the Asawa-Lanier Family, a group exhibition that brings together four generations from a San Francisco family of makers. Inspired by our namesake, world-renowned artist Ruth Asawa, the exhibition serves as an opportunity to honor Asawa’s life-long commitment to community-based art education and activism in the arts.
The exhibition looks at how women from the 18th century to the present
day have deployed the visual language and universal formal concerns of abstraction—color, line, shape,
contrast, pattern, and texture—working across a wide variety of media, including painting, textiles,
sculpture, photography, drawing, and ceramics.
