Coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, “Survivalist” explores the various aspects of disaster and survival ranging from the practical to the metaphorical. Not limited to environmental catastrophes, the artists included examine everyday concerns that effect our sense of well being, safety, and preparedness for real and exaggerated dangers. From the mundane to the extraordinary and the pragmatic to the symbolic, the works in the exhibition reflect both collective and individual notions of survival.
