In His Hands? 

Wednesday, Mar 3 2010
Sculptor Mildred Howard often makes room-sized sculptures; she likes multiples, it seems. At this show, she's focused on one of the most ridiculous multiples in, uh, the world: The globe. Not the actual one, the big one, but the ubiquitous round representation of where we live. Necessarily inaccurate, perpetually infected with political trickery, and yet always welcome, the globe is a riveting jumping-off place for any artist. But Howard is a master of putting things together: Buttons and maps, frying pans and seating, or a beautiful chessboard made of checkered fur and salt and pepper shakers -- so her take on where to put a globe and what to put it with is extra exciting.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
