Spit and Polish 

Wednesday, Jun 6 2007
Morgan Konn's photographs in Her House, Her Clothes show a young woman posing in a series of beautiful, if boring, houses. A bland middle-class aesthetic screams from each image, whether through marble countertops, tasteful window treatments, or the regulation-pretty clothes she wears. As the Bay Area becomes less and less inhabitable for anyone but the double-income-no-kids set, this world may be frosty and passionless, but it's probably more common than one might think. This makes Konn's work especially relevant to the show it's in, "The Spitting Image." As a look at stereotypical feminists, the show exposes everything that gets in the way of genuine change. Or maybe not -- maybe yuppie-haters are wrong, and these white-bread spaces hold potential for more than meets the eye. Curator Terri Whitlock chose Konn along with Kelli Connell and collaborators Tarrah Krajnak and Wilka Roig.

  • 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.'"
