I’ve spent the last two months toying with glitch art destruction, game hacked 8-bit graphics styles and all that. I can say one thing at this point – it’s great to play with iterations in digital art. It’s very satisfying and increases the scope and perspective to which elements of change, time and story can be created to group works of art which are added when you group a set of works, or create an exhibition or installation. And it’s a great way to offer limited edition sets. Of courseRead More

There’s an exciting New Surrealism exhibit at Mirus Gallery curated by Paul Hemming, opening Saturday, June 8th, and, taking part in the Yerba Buena Gallery Walk this weekend. Paul has put together really quite a superb group of contemporary artists working in the surreal genre for this show. Dreamtime: New Surrealism considers how how concepts about the unimagined and the fantastic have developed over time, and the artists featured in the show represent a range of artists working in the Surrealist tradition, from Pop Surrealism to Postmodern appropriation of surrealisticRead More

Jem Cohen at SF Cameraworks
Primarily a filmmaker, Jem Cohen is a multimedia artist and photographer whose images are on exhibit at SF Camerawork through June 22nd. Known primarily as a filmmaker, New York-based Jem Cohen has been quietly photographing around the world since the 1980s. His photographic excursions can serve as location scouts and often inform his approach to filmmaking. However, as with other multimedia artists, one could consider his work in both mediums as part of a larger whole. Says Cohen: “Though linked, they are very different ways of divining and distilling theRead More

By all measure this year’s ArtPadSF was another huge success. This is a very different and casual art fair; held at the Phoenix Hotel it was a very laid back way to stroll and shop for art. The San Francisco and Bay Area artists at the Tenderloin’s Gauntlet Gallery seem to pull no punches when it comes to making social and political statements with their art, very often with such bright and vivid palettes. I’m drawn right in by Chilean artist and illustrator Fab Ciraolo’s pop culture rendering of FridaRead More
SFMOMA at Crissy Field
Partnership with the National Park Service and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, Yearlong Waterfront Display at Crissy Field Will Be Free to Public It’s safe to say a museum like SFMOMA doesn’t do anything small, quiet or diminutive. If they’re closing for three years for one incredible expansion project and a series of off-site programming, they will do it large, with a very visible presence. Beginning officially on May 22nd through May 26, 2014, SFMOMA will present a major outdoor exhibition of sculptor Mark di Suvero’s works near the GoldenRead More
Through Sunday, May, 19th Exhibition hours: 11 am–6 pm daily A lot of art going on this weekend, but this event is one to catch – the San Francisco Art Institute MFA show, Currency, a showcase of provocative new work from nearly 100 emerging artists. Chosen as a subject during a time of ongoing and changing economic conditions, this exhibition at The Old Mint offers a unique opportunity for SFAI’s artists to juxtapose contemporary expression with a stunning National Historic Landmark that was central to the country’s economic development. SFAI’sRead More

You often hear artists talk about the meaning or intention of their work, and the process(es) they undertake being as important as the work itself. This is one of the truest definitions of an artist, not as much concerned with what philosophers or art historians might once have called aesthetic beauty; now redefined by Danto and others as embedded meaning. And embedded meaning is precisely what Robert Kingston’s work makes such excellent use of along with the creative process employed by the painter. According to Dolby Chadwick’s exhibition notes, “RobertRead More

by Mark Gould On this week’s Modern Art Notes podcast Tyler Green interviews Museum of Modern Art curator Leah Dickerman about the new MOMA exhibition “Inventing Abstraction 1910-1925: How a Radical Idea Changed Modern Art.”  If you’re a fan of Green you know he’s quite the art scholar and on Modern Art Notes he always does a great interview and Ms. Dickerman gives us some fascinating insight into the opening years of the last century when so many artists embraced the lack of figuration and representation of objects in their work,Read More
