There Is a War Going On - Standing Rock Part 4


In 2004, Spencer Keeton Cunningham moved to San Francisco to attend the San Francisco Art Institute, and he called the city home for 12 years — even as he traveled the last two years on a painting tour that took him to New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Cuba, Mexico, and across the United States.

Cunningham always planned to come back to San Francisco, and he did — but a few months ago, he and his roommates were evicted from their North of the Panhandle apartment. The landlord used a severe mold problem in the apartment to force them out, Cunningham says, and There is a war going on/Standing Rock part 4 may be his last public work here. It’s a piece about the ongoing Dakota Access Pipeline protests in North Dakota, led by members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which began in April.
