Cheryl Haines is Principal and Director of Haines Gallery and Founding Executive Director of the FOR-SITE Foundation, both located in San Francisco. Through her Directorial roles at Haines Gallery and the FOR-SITE Foundation, Haines has for over 25 years developed exhibitions and site-specific public programming that has advanced discourse on ‘Art About Place’. Haines’ dynamic curatorial stance presents challenging and provocative exhibitions by artists working across a wide range of media who explore cultural and environmental issues. Over time, this position has expanded to include producing public, site-specific commissions on a national scale. Selected notable Bay Area projects include the installation of large-scale works by both James Turrell and Andy Goldsworthy at the de Young Museum, landscape interventions by Andy Goldsworthy in the Presidio, including Spire (2008),Wood Line (2010-2011) and Tree Fall (2013), and most recently @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz, in which the internationally renowned Chinese artist and political dissident created sculpture, sound and mixed-media installations for the infamous former prison.
