Medicine Agency is proud to present the first official exhibition of photographs by San Francisco based photographer Sean Desmond.  The show will feature a collection of 35 photographs from Desmond’s ongoing Tenderloin Project, a portrait in film and photography of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood.  To many, the Tenderloin is a poor and stigmatized area, to be avoided if possible, rushed through if necessary.  As a point of departure, Desmond and the Tenderloin Project withstand such stereotypes and enter the neighborhood with eyes open and active intent.

Opening Reception: April 9th 7pm

Medicine Agency, 1262 Mason St, San Francisco, CA  94108

with collaborative pieces by:

Mike Giant, Mark Bode, Apex, Oliver Black, Greg Mike & more

A portion of proceeds from the show will be donated to Hospitality House’s Community Art’s Program, the only free-of-charge fine arts studio for homeless and poor artists in San Francisco.  Promoting and giving access to art in the Tenderloin, Desmond feels, will allow his project to live on in the community for years and generations to come.
