Ten Years, Part Deux 

Wednesday, Jul 13 2011
Yoon Lee’s art is magnificent. It’s like being in space if space were white and the wild-colored star trails were prone to dripping. We first saw her enormous canvases at the Marin Headlands Center for the Arts, at which time we got to wander the studios and see the work in progress. So when you look at her centrifugal, shiny, hard-plastic color bands and you wonder “How’d she do that?” we can tell you the answer is “It involves some really cool-looking machines.” Lee is part of “Sea Change” Part Two, a retrospective of the host gallery’s past 10 years. Ten years is a long time for any enterprise, but the intense strength of the curators’ eyes and backs have kept the public eyeball on work like Lee’s, even in this not-so-art-friendly era. Other contributors are the also-magnificent Andrew Schoultz, David Hevel (but don’t ask us how he makes that glam faux-taxidermy topiary), Taravat Talepasand, and others including three of the six artists who opened the gallery’s inaugural show back in ’01.

  • 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.'"
