Background
The Meridian Gallery was a non-profit exhibition and performance space in San Francisco, California that showcased innovative music, performances, lectures and visual arts. The gallery grew out of the Society for Art Publications of the Americas (SAPA), which was founded in 1985 by Anne Brodzky and Anthony Williams. In 1989 the Meridian Gallery moved into its own space near Union Square in San Francisco, California. After dealing with escalating rents the gallery briefly moved to the Presidio before ending operations in 2017.
