Shaky Towns @ Alter Space, Aug 6 – Sep 17

4 August 2016

The Shaky Towns group exhibition is on at San Francisco’s Alter Space, opening August 6 and running to September 17.

The two-part exhibition will simultaneously be held at Alter Space and The Battery. It features fourteen artists currently living and working in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The intention and theme is to create visual dialogue between the two cities, while “concurrently addressing their divergent attributes”. There is an emphasis on the two areas and the artists that reside there, but also how the selection of the work is “uniquely attuned to the variant of the two physical spaces”.

Exhibiting artists include Ariana Papademetropoulos, Charlie Leese, James Georgopoulos, James Gobel, Joe McKee, Kim Ye, Marcela Pardo Ariza, Mario Ayala, Nick Makanna, Rachel LaBine, Ryan Perez, Ross Simonini, Sam Spano, and Willy Reed.

See the Alter Space website for more details.**

Les négligences volontaires @ Shanaynay, Mar 29 – Apr 17

29 March 2016

Paris’ Shanaynay is hosting group show, Les négligences volontaires, opening March 29 and running April 17.

The artists in the show whose title translates to ‘wilful negligence’ are Kim Farkas whose text pdfs like ‘Interior Day‘ circle around the experience of taking on information, Tetsumi Kudo, Kim Ye and London-based painter Nada Baraka who makes ‘fractals’ and series that refuse to become something whole or finite.

There is little information as to the exhibition’s narrative apart from a short excerpt-cum-press release quoting fashion designer Marc Jacobs talking about watching his mother put on her make up before going on dates in a video starring actress Winona Ryder. He tells a sweet but striking image of her scraping the velvet fluff from her black ribbon and using it to buffer her eyelashes before going on to express his thoughts about the human nature of transformation and “the joy of a being a woman, or a man, or a person. [Atmospheric piano solo fades out]”.

See the Shanaynay website for details.**
