Immersive art 

Wednesday, Jun 18 2014

Over the last month, a group of artists has been contemplating our waterways, both seen and unseen, for a group show titled "Off Shore." Local artist Paul Cesewski presented an evening of floating kinetic sculptures, including an amphibious bicycle-powered Ferris wheel; performers from Esta Noche and the once-vivacious Lusty Lady held peepshows on open water; New York artist Marie Lorenz spent ten days in her homemade boat, gathering relics which are on display at Southern Exposure along with a growing collection of items from far flung places like Cape Verde, Venice, New Orleans, and Tuvalu, which are all in peril of vanishing as the climate changes. Today, Chris Sollars presents Yosemite Creek Walk, the last in his series of walks along San Francisco's buried streams. Starting at Yosemite Marsh, walkers will carry a block-long piece of rope to trace Yosemite Creek as it passes beneath the Bayview neighborhood toward the Yosemite Slough, where the Water Shed is moored. This beautiful floating raft is made of recycled materials and has served as artist headquarters throughout this exhibit. Walkers will be ferried over for food and drink.

  • 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.'"
