Pattern: Group Show 

See what's playing in the bathroom.

Wednesday, Jan 7 2009

Artist and curator Brion Nuda Rosch's Hallway Bathroom Gallery is pretty much what its name implies: a long skinny gallery area with an appended pair of bathrooms. The intimate viewing space turns out to be just right for its current group show, themed around pattern. On one side, a canvas from Paul Corio shimmers with pixelated squares, while on the other a painting of stacked jars by the collective Pica Pica threatens to topple. The narrow perspective of the hallway forces you to get delightfully close to these pop optics, until they feel imprinted on your retinas. There's no escape, as long as your eyes are open.

  • 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.'"
