Maya Kabat Exhibit in SFMOMA Cafe Distracts from Downtown Holiday Madness

Posted By on Mon, Nov 26, 2012 at 9:30 AM


SFMOMA never ceases to impress. Great art exhibits, friendly staff, and an excellent coffee shop. If that's not enough to make you a fan, it even has free admission on the first Tuesday of every month -- all that, and it's right in the heart of downtown San Francisco. We know lots of our readers will be out and about in downtown shopping over the holidays, but when you get worn out from all that bargain hunting, stop by the SFMOMA cafe to grab a coffee and check out "The Lab."

"The Lab," is an exhibition of work from Maya Kabat in collaboration with Scott S. Jennings of Mosshouse and is sponsored by SFMOMA Artists Gallery. It explores architectural forms, geometric abstraction, and the tension between balance, color, and form, as part of Kabat's ongoing creative process. The pieces are installed in patterns and modular formations that show the interconnectivity of the individual works. If that sounds like fancy artist talk, don't worry. Maya Kabat has exhibited work in SFMOMA before, also at 5 Claude Lane Gallery, and she was a founding member of Mercury Twenty Gallery in Oakland. The pictures speak for themselves, and the exhibit will make the perfect antidote to the screaming babies and shoving shoppers that are the holiday season.


"The Lab" opens November 23rd at 10 a.m. (and runs through January 8, with the opening reception happening Dec. 6) at the SFMOMA Cafe, 151 Third St. (at Mission), S.F. Admission is free.

  • 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.'"
