Public Intimacy focuses on the ways that artists have explored interpersonal relationships, encounters, and exchange in everyday social life in South Africa. Initially formed from a consideration of South African photography in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art collection, the exhibition, curated by both institutions, also includes works in painting, print-making, sculpture, media arts, graphic design, plus a series of integral live art projects. http://ybca.org/public-intimacy
