Art on a massive scale is what YBCA architect Fumihiko Maki had in mind for the rooms in which “Wallworks” appears — the place was built specifically to encourage temporary murals, and that’s exactly what new curator Betti-Sue Hertz has put together. Our current favorite among the eight artists is Leslie Shows, whose work uses cliff faces, quarry excavations, and the fantastical interpretation of energy fields to create grandiose paintings of ruinous grandeur. A series of artist talks called Artist InSight precedes the official opening of the exhibit; Shows’ is today, but don’t miss Odili Donald Odita’s opinions on his freaky, high-energy pastel-bright abstracts, or Edgar Arcenaux holding forth on his doomed, grainy work vehicles.

"Wallworks'" Artist InSight starts at 2 p.m.
July 18-Oct. 25, 2009

  • 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.'"
