"Sea Change: The 10th Anniversary Exhibition Part I", Marx and Zavattero, 77 Geary, San Francisco, Opening June 11 5:30- 7:30 though July 16
Marx and Zavattero are celebrating an impressive feat in providing high quality emerging and mid-career art to San Francisco for the last ten years in the form of a two part group exhibition showcasing all represented artists. I am particularly excited about Libby Black's new piece, an eight-foot painting of Brooke Shields kneeling in dirt, which I had to help her strap to the top of her car from the East Oakland canvas maker and drive at 15 miles an hour all the way to her Berkeley studio. The show will also feature work by two more favorites, felt-loving James Gobel and celebrity-obsessed David Hevel.
"Desirée Holman: Heterotopias", Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, 2626 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, Opening June 26 through September 18
|Holman film still|
Desiree Holman, represented by Jessica Silverman Gallery and a CCA Graduate professor, combines pop culture, fantasy, and identity in a variety of artworks from film to drawing. In this show she shows both real people and avatars to "[construct] a Möbius-like relation between real and virtual", according to the museum press release. Looks like a great reason to stop by the BAMPFA, since I still have never been! And if you ever needed more of a reason to go, there's the frozen yogurt place across the street that prices your goodies by the pound.
