Josh Faught on BE BOLD For What You Stand For, BE CAREFUL For What You Fall For

Artist Josh Faught reflects on his SFMOMA commission, a constellation of sculptures that respond to the architecture and history of the Neptune Society Columbarium in San Francisco, a nondenominational repository for cremation urns. In this video he reflects on the idiosyncrasies of that space and the personalized memorials housed there, which demonstrate a balance between gravity and levity that is mirrored in his sculptures.

This is one of four off-site SECA projects. For more information, including hours and directions, visit the SECA exhibition page.
