Beyond Binary focuses on the exploration of a gender spectrum, across cultures and generations, in the formation of personal and collective identities and visual narratives. Beyond Binary celebrates trans and gender-nonconforming artists who engage the body as both a form and site of social sculpture and who challenge established narratives of art history to become more inclusive, while working across media and transdisciplinarily.

The public programs are supported by an Extraordinary Ideas grant from SF State's College of Liberal & Creative Arts.



Learn About the Gallery

The vision of the Fine Arts Gallery is to serve a broad and varied audience that includes students, faculty and staff of the University, along with the local arts community and the greater population of the region, while carrying out a program that reflects the range of disciplines taught by San Francisco State University's School of Art.

The mission of the Martin Wong Gallery is to provide San Francisco State University's student artists the opportunity to exhibit works and organize and present exhibitions. This program is made possible through the generous support of the Martin Wong Foundation and SF State’s Instructionally Related Student Activities Fund.

The Fine Arts Gallery program typically features group exhibitions conceived by School of Art faculty that explore different dimensions of California contemporary art, annual student exhibitions and a faculty exhibition once every four years.
