With Deniz Beyazit, PhD Koret Auditorium, de Young Museum Woven bags carried by nomads in the Middle East were designed to contain all of the necessities of life, from bedding to salt. This talk will present distinctly patterned examples of woven bags from nomadic cultures from Anatolia to Iran. Featuring geometric patterns as well as stylized floral and animal motifs, these textiles are both utilitarian and expressive of a highly sophisticated tribal aesthetic. The talk draws from a selection of textiles that William and Inger Ginsberg donated in 2015 and 2018 to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

  • 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.'"
