Sigh. Beautiful. Speaking of beautiful, I usually just take a small excerpt from artists’ sites, but in this case I couldn’t decide! Here’s Misa’s entire […]

    Risograph prints, costumes, and odd characters who I assume live in those dreamy candy-hued houses.

  • Do apps belong in art galleries?
    by Ruth Millington on 8th October 2019 at 12:00 am

    Not long ago, art world etiquette was clear. Use of mobile phones in a gallery was considered crude. I’ve certainly tutted at selfie-taking tourists, rudely blocking my view. However, many museums and galleries are now encouraging visitors to use their phones. A new app, Smartify, allows you to point your smartphone at an artwork and receive instant information on it. Brilliant idea or big mistake? […]

    by Rise Art on 19th September 2019 at 12:00 am

    Eiderdown Books is a new publisher releasing books about female artists written by leading female writers, art historians and cultural commentators.

  • Sunrise on Alcatraz
    by LaNada War Jack on 14th October 2019 at 4:40 pm

    After the genocide and treaty-making period ended in 1871, Congress mandated that Native cultures, languages, customs, songs, dances, and ceremonies be illegal; this mandate lasted from 1880 to 1934. Native children were taken hostage, forced into government and Christian boarding schools to further ensure non-resistance by tribes. The physical, mental, and sexual abuse of these […]

  • Salvage and Recuperation
    by Matt Sussman on 10th October 2019 at 5:00 pm

    The 1890s Victorian at 3267 20th Street still stands. Having survived the 1906 earthquake and the fire that followed, it endures like an old-growth redwood, containing within its timbers its own concentric record of surrounding environmental change. For more than two decades, this was the home of poet Robert Duncan and his partner, the visual […]

  • Night falls slowly inside a photograph
    by Anne Lesley Selcer on 9th October 2019 at 2:56 pm

    The ethical, emotional and aesthetic have no separation in Abbas Akhavan’s work. In hospitable and humorous ways, his installations make gentle incursions into the order of the museum — public and private, sacred and devalued. The recent cast for a folly downgraded the slick San Francisco Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art into a besieged museum […]

  • For Kevin
    by The Editors on 8th October 2019 at 5:00 pm

    Kevin Killian was everywhere at once in this town. There have been several lovely collage portraits dedicated to him since June; we wanted to create one based on an open call for memories of Kevin in the Bay Area — expressed however people choose, so long as there is some local connection. If you’d like […]

  • Coda
    by Claudia La Rocco on 7th October 2019 at 5:00 pm

    Exhaust fumes. Fruitless minutes spent searching for a parking spot. And then later, inevitably, more time trying to remember where exactly you left your car. Parking garages don’t typically provoke romantic thoughts. But for me, 147 Minna will forever be associated with a delicious evening late this summer, when six of the seven writers we […]
