Gabriele Basilico (Photography)

January 26–June 15, 2008

This exhibition inaugurates an anticipated three-part series exploring the current state of Silicon Valley—and the effects of the technology boom on the region—through the perspective of photographers commissioned by SFMOMA. A native Italian, Gabriele Basilico studied architecture in Milan before launching his photographic career. His architectural studies continue to inform his work, as Basilico most often takes as his subject cities—notably cities in states of construction or decay, such as the ruins of war-devastated Beirut. This exhibition will present new work produced during Basilico’s month-long residency in Silicon Valley.
