Women in the Dunes 

When: Wednesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Aug. 30 2014
Price: Free
Set in sand that is both beautiful and claustrophobic, the 1964 Japanese film The Woman in the Dunes is one of the most haunting dramas ever made about circumstance, struggle, and adaption. George Lawson Gallery pays homage to the movie's title with "Women in the Dunes," a group exhibit of 10 female artists — nine of them painters, one of them (Jennah Ward) a photographer who produces painterly work. All of the artworks leave room for interpretation, and some of the offerings in this exhibit — like Jenny Bloomfield's Out of the Green Blue, Justine Frischmann's Untitled Painting, Nancy Haynes' On Kawara's Dream, and Ward's Pico 2 photo — evoke a feeling of quiet and exploration that is also a foundation of Hiroshi Teshigahara's The Woman in the Dunes. See for yourself. The exhibition reception gives art-goers an ideal chance to inhabit art that, like Teshigahara's movie, is simultaneously timeless and about moments in time.

  • 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.'"
