Please join us at Gallery 16 on SATURDAY, October 19th, 4-7pm for a special evening as we celebrate the release of Hal Fischer's new monograph, Hal Fischer: The Gay Seventies. There will be an ARTIST TALK and BOOK SIGNING.

Hal Fischer: The Gay Seventies is the first monograph to feature the complete set of photo-text works that Hal Fischer produced between 1977 and 1979 in San Francisco’s Haight and Castro neighborhoods. In addition to Gay Semiotics, Fischer’s best- known work (the monograph sold over 7,000 copies and is now out of print), Hal Fischer: The Gay Seventies includes 18th Near Castro Street x 24, which was published as an artist’s book but has not been on view since 1981, Boy-Friends, A Salesman and two other series—Civic Center and Cheap Chic Homo.

Books will be available for purchase.

While this is a free event, we ask that you kindly sign up to reserve a place.

Artist ( Description ): 

Over a career spanning four decades, Hal Fischer has been an artist, art critic, and museum professional. Fischer’s work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions and is featured in both public and private collections.  In the 1970s, his reviews and articles on photography regularly appeared in such journals as Artweek, Artforum, and Afterimage. The recipient of NEA fellowships in both photography and criticism, in 1977 Fischer gained nonprofit status for San Francisco Camerawork and assembled that organization’s first volunteer board. In 1984, Fischer embarked on a career as an independent museum consultant. His practice included key long-term client associations, most notably the Timken Museum of Art, where he served as director of exhibitions and publications from 1985 to 2007, and the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, where he directed special projects, including major international loan exhibitions and interpretive planning for the Asian Art Museum’s Civic Center home.
