The second installment of Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times continues the exhibition’s experimental blend of new art commissions and works from the di Rosa collection with four new projects by Bay Area artists, each responding to the evolving social and political climate through a topic of their choice. In Gallery 1, Lexa Walsh explores the topic of assembly through her guest-curated presentation of works from di Rosa’s rich collection of Northern California art. In Gallery 2, Victor CartagenaRanu Mukherjee, and Lava Thomas address immigration, societal health, and solidarity, respectively, through large-scale commissioned installations. The dialogue of the exhibition is furthered through an extensive programs and partnerships component that uses the artist projects and the exhibition’s themes as a platform for engagement and inquiry.

Presented in two parts throughout 2018, Be Not Still is an institution-wide initiative to support the production of new work. The exhibition brings new dynamism to the permanent collection and initiates exchanges about ideas that matter.
