Multimedia ‘Mourning’ installation at YBCA asks who gets the privilege of being memorialized

“Mourning Is an Act of Love” is an installation currently on display at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) for the SF Urban Film Fest. “The exhibit itself is kind of an outgrowth of the film programs we put together for the online festival,” says lead curator and documentary filmmaker Susannah Smith. The festival Smith is referring to is SF Urban’s Film Fest annual signature event, which brings storytelling, history, urban planning, community discussion and more, all in one place.
