Thinking Inside the Box 

Wednesday, Nov 25 2009
Pablo Guardiola's new exhibit "Primero La Caja" has to do with looking at mundane objects with a new perspective. In fact, that's what all of his work does: Roller skates get newspaper wheels; a greasy paper bag, on closer inspection, is a world map, and teeny books line a brick's edge. He's fond of putting things in boxes, to show they don't belong there, too. Local by way of San Juan Puerto Rico, Guardiola is meticulous, observant, and wry in his photography and installation work; the gallery says this large, sprawling exhibition works together as a whole, one piece building on the next.

  • 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.'"
