San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

snap+share: transmitting photographs from mail art to social networks. With millions of images sent across the Internet and social media every day, snap+share will offer a new way to visualize--and experience--how photographs have become ubiquitous in our daily lives. Spanning the history of mail art to social networks, this unique exhibition will explore the outward gesture of sharing pictures, instead of the more traditional, inward act of taking photographs. Among the many works visitors will encounter are the first-ever camera photo sent by phone, as well as Erik Kessels's monumental roomful of printed photographs uploaded online in 24 hours. They will also be welcomed to participate in David Horvitz's contemporary meme-making project by putting their heads in a working freezer in the galleries, while Eva and Franco Mattes's piece representing a popular cat meme will peer down from overhead. The exhibition will continue outside the museum walls, with Aram Bartholl's massive Google Maps' red geo pin sculpture installed atop the museum.
