Guy Overfelt. A.C.A.B., 1995 - 2017

Beginning 8 July 2017, Ever Gold [Projects] in San Francisco presents ‘Guy Overfelt. A.C.A.B., 1995 - 2017’, the fourth major San Francisco exhibition devoted to the politically charged, darkly exuberant art of Guy Overfelt. Comprised of six major works spanning the artist’s career, this exhibition constitutes a long-overdue, comprehensive survey in his adopted city. While Overfelt’s groundbreaking works found early recognition in Europe and New York, the artist spent the entirety of his career in San Francisco’s Mission District, where he lived and worked until his untimely death in 2017 at the age of 40. The exhibition at Ever Gold [Projects] is conceived to share and celebrate his unwavering vision of the world as an infinite, corpulent, and lustful universe of expressive opportunity. Assertively pushing against the safety of cultural conventions, Overfelt broke accepted rules of public nicety and expanded the frontiers of artistic opportunity through unbridled, brazenly ‘Maximalist’ works. In short, Overfelt brought the impolite and culturally unspeakable to the center of the conversation.
