Heating Up

Texan artist and White Walls Gallery group show veteran Sergio Garcia will be showing his work in a new solo exhibition entitled "Infinite Chapters" at the Tenderloin space. Garcia works primarily in print and sculpture to produce a mélange of iconic childhood objects and images. His past work has played with warped, fish-eyed references to American history and iconography. His series "Heat" featured silk-screened images of Air Jordan sneakers where gunpowder has been used as the transfer medium, recalling Warhol while incorporating a bit of new Americana — in American sneaker culture, "heat" is a term referring to rare, highly coveted sneakers. Garcia's red tricycle frames are perhaps his most notable work; the sculptures seem to take the famous Eggleston tricycle and twist it every which way. "It's not always easy to tell what's real and what's fabricated," says Garcia. Garcia's new work often incorporates old; his projects (and exhibitions) constantly build on themselves to add to the same living diorama, in which none of the artifacts of our collective cultural landscape are exactly the way we remembered them.


Tuesdays-Saturdays, 7 p.m. Starts: April 12. Continues through May 3, 2014

  • 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.'"
