Backstage at the Art Exhibit 

Wednesday, Aug 25 2010
Curators are underappreciated. Sure, you’ve heard of Jean-Michel Basquiat, but have you heard of the person who decided to put his art on the walls in the first place, helped him choose which paintings to show, or considered what color to paint those walls? Neither have we, but we’d sure like to hear what she’d have to say. At “Regeneration: Intersection for the Arts Intern Artwalk,” seven young people who’ve been studying the art of curation (among other subjects at the gallery’s Leadership Training Program) walk you around to their streetside window installations at local businesses, and explain what they’ve chosen to put there and why. If you love art, this rare type of event is a great, juicy treat; extremely fun and extremely thought-provoking. In this case, the work is the curators’ own, and the businesses have been chosen carefully — for example, Ana Bedolla’s art uses live plants, and her exhibit appears in the windows of nature-artifact emporium Paxton Gate.

  • 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.'"
