"Lawrence's work, Uh Huh Her, from her recent solo show at Traywick Contemporary is an homage to musician PJ Harvey and the power of the female voice." -Dr. Stephanie Hanor
-A SPIRIT OF DISRUPTION
SFAI 150 | A Spirit of Disruption showcases a selection of works and archival materials that celebrate the ethos and expansive ecosystem of the San Francisco Art Institute. As the title suggests, the exhibition disrupts the bias present in the history of many arts institutions across the Bay Area, and the proclivity to preserve and celebrate an art world that has been predominantly white and male. With careful examination of this history and a breadth of perspectives, the exhibition illuminates the distinct and diverse voices of SFAI which includes alumni, faculty, staff, and the community who have made an enormous contribution to its legendary history.
A Spirit of Disruption embraces time; past, present, and future.

ARTIST + TRAVEL VIDEO on Instagram: a COVIDeo Interview with Danielle Lawrence
For this series of video interviews, Sarah Thibault speaks with artists, writers and curators all over the world to hear about their experiences during the COVID pandemic. The aim of the conversations is two-fold: to share the unique perspectives that arise from different global responses to the spread of the virus; and to unearth the commonalities in these experiences, to find out what is shared despite the fact that we are relegated primarily to our homes in vastly different locations. Artists + Travel is a travel blog for artists that Thibault created in 2018 to document her two+ years living as a nomad and attending artist residencies abroad.
