Christian L. Frock for KQED lists ICI’s traveling exhibition FAX at the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery as one of the Bay Area’s top 10 Art Experiences in 2012 stating:
“FAX at San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery was part of a larger system of exhibitions organized all over the world, based on use of the (nearly obsolete) fax machine as a drawing tool. Several binders of faxes from previous shows were presented alongside new commissions by more than twenty local artists including Kota Ezawa, Pablo Guardiola, and Taraneh Hemami, among others. A series of public events created an interesting dialogue around art’s relationship to technology. Perhaps most interestingly, the premise was built on the simplest of ephemeral gestures and still had the capacity to travel widely and engage many, many people—when this is possible, art is at its best.”
FAX at San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, San Francisco, co-organized by the Drawing Center and Independent Curators International, both in New York, with guest curator João Ribas with local programming curated by SFAC Galleries director Meg Shiffler and manager Aimee Le Duc.
