Forty? That's Hella Old 

Wednesday, Oct 27 2010
“Galería 4.0, a Retrospective celebrates the significant impact our querido Latino art gallery has had in putting Chicano/Latino art in the public spotlight. You could be led to think that an inexhaustible team of art enthusiasts works around the clock at that joint to keep an impressively varied performance schedule and maniacally diverse visual art panoply alive and well deep in the Mission — and you would be right. Born from and raised by social justice ambitions, the gallery has hosted innumerable Bay Area art luminaries, including writer and visual artist Jaime Cortez, whose writing and sculpture has been exhibited at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Oakland Museum of California, the Berkeley Art Museum, and beyond. This evening’s exhibit will span the 40 years it has been in existence, with well over 40 artists represented. Any art institution would be lucky to so seamlessly represent the expanse of Chicano/Latino experience: queer and straight, indigenous and mixed, old and young, conceptual and representative art, and so on. Strategies for the Shift, a series of panel discussions reflecting on artists’ interpretations of the political landscape in Latin America, continues in October with "Documenting the Shift" and "Artists in Conversation."
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 24. Continues through Jan. 29, 2010

  • 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.'"
