mamacoatl-2016
January 22, 2016 (SAN FRANCISCO) I was so sad to hear yesterday of the passing of Mamacoatl, San Francisco artist, poet and fearless political activist. I met her in the 00’s at New College of California in the Mission, where she was part of the Women’s Spirituality Program. I did some photography and video art for a few of the many live performance works of music, poetry and political activism she became known throughout the Mission for in those years, and ever since. Although I didn’t get the chance to knowRead More

Lisa Kairos “Peripheral Views”, September 1­15, 2015 Solo Show at Hang Gallery 567 Sutter St., second floor, San Francisco Instagram @lkairos website: l​isakairos.com September 4th, 2015 by M​ark Gould I’m always fascinated about how artists are so willing, sometimes hunger to constantly evolve their creative process, seeking to engage in some internal and/or external activity on some regular basis to challenge their perceptions, beliefs and worldview. We all do the same, regardless of our vocation or position. If we’re mindful enough there’s a constant reevaluation of who we are andRead 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
