Southern Exposure (SoEx) is a nonprofit visual arts organization that supports emerging artists and youth in a dynamic environment, in which they can develop and present new work and ideas. An active presence in the San Francisco Bay Area for thirty-seven years, the organization evolves in response to the needs of artists and the community, engaging the public in the artists’ work.
SoEx reaches out to diverse audiences and serves as a forum and resource center to provide extraordinary support to the Bay Area’s arts and education communities. Activities include: arts education programs; exhibitions of local, regional, and international visual artists; public art projects; grants; lectures; workshops; panel discussions; and performances. SoEx is dedicated to giving artists and youth—whether they are teaching, exhibiting, curating, or learning—an opportunity to realize ideas for projects that may not otherwise find support.
