Brian Goggin moved to San Francisco from Davis, California, in 1988. His first visits to the city came as a kid when his parents enrolled him in a class at the SFMoMA where he studied animation and sculpture.
In this episode, Brian reflects on his childhood, arriving in San Francisco, why he left and what it was like to return, his early art explorations, and how he began to fuse his interests of literature, painting, and performance into his three-dimensional art.
Check back Thursday for Part 2, when Brian will tell us all about two of his more prominent sculpture projects in San Francisco.
We recorded this podcast at Brian's studio in Project Artaud in the Mission in September and October 2019.
