Scrounger's Art 

Wednesday, Oct 22 2008
Fine art made out of materials that would otherwise be thrown away is trendy right now, speaking to all of the ways we consume, live in the short-term, and scorn anything that isn't new. Local non-profit SCRAP was way ahead of the art trash curve; it's been promoting creative reuse since 1978. The acronym stands for Scroungers' Center for Reusable Art Parts, and for the past thirty years this warehouse and workshop space has been taking in spare fabric, paper, buttons, beads, and wood and providing it to artists and students. Recollections: Celebrating 30 Years of SCRAP shows off the results, including work from Jody Alexander, Deborah Colotti, Emiko Oye, Remi Rubel, Reddy Lieb, and others.
Mondays-Fridays. Starts: Nov. 3. Continues through Nov. 25, 2008

  • 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.'"
