Gabriele Basilico (Photography)

January 26–June 15, 2008

This exhibition inaugurates an anticipated three-part series exploring the current state of Silicon Valley—and the effects of the technology boom on the region—through the perspective of photographers commissioned by SFMOMA. A native Italian, Gabriele Basilico studied architecture in Milan before launching his photographic career. His architectural studies continue to inform his work, as Basilico most often takes as his subject cities—notably cities in states of construction or decay, such as the ruins of war-devastated Beirut. This exhibition will present new work produced during Basilico’s month-long residency in Silicon Valley.

  • 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.'"
