Getting Closer 

Wednesday, Dec 11 2013

If you've been to the Asian Art Museum's other "Proximities" exhibitions, you've already seen how family, culture, and landscape translate to breathtaking artworks. And if you haven't been to the others, don't worry. You get a final chance with Proximities 3: Import/Export (the last of the trilogy) which uses contemporary art to glimpse into the ideas of trade and commerce in not only objects and goods, but ideas and experiences as well. The show examines these concepts through Asian perspectives. Works include porcelain sculptures inspired by Japanese trinkets from Rebeca Bollinger and an installation based on sex services at the Yongsan Military Base in Seoul by Amanda Curreri. Half a dozen other elite artists, many of whom are local, offer perspectives on trade through diverse mediums.

Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 20. Continues through Feb. 23, 2013

  • 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.'"
