Past Exhibition "Foreclosure USA"
Foreclosure, USA: Stockton
January 18 - February 16, 2011
Reception and Artist's Talk, January 21, 2011
This solo exhibition of San Francisco Bay Area photographer Kirk Crippens documents the home foreclosure crisis of 2008 and 2009, with particular focus on Stockton, CA.
Crippens explains that he chose Stockton as the subject of his Foreclosure, USA series in 2009 as it became a center of the housing foreclosure crisis in America:
In the last few years, Crippens has had solo exhibitions of his Foreclosure, USA series at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery and RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco, CA. They were both positively reviewed, including an interview on KALW radio for Cross Currents. Additionally, he was invited to speak at San Francisco PhotoAlliance, opening for John Pfahl. Crippens also won the Blue Earth Prize for Best Project Photography for his Foreclosure, USA series and was nominated for the Fleishhacker Foundation's Eureka Fellowship Program for 2011 - 2013.
