BANQUET OF THE BLACK JACKAL

 

What happens when mankind ends? How will history, cultural objects, and relationships between the elements be remembered or reinterpreted? The artists in this exhibition tackle the notion of history--be it personal, cultural or philosophic--in their multimedia installations. The questions at play in this exhibition are informed by the writings of Hegelian philosopher Alexandre Kojève and contemporary science fiction.

Participating artists: Liz Craft, Eduardo Consuegra, Matthew Greene, Shio Kusaka, Adam D. Miller, Ruby Neri, Devon Oder, and Amanda Ross-Ho.

TROPICAL VULTURE: THE FILMS OF GEORGE KUCHAR

This exhibition presents a unique combination of Kuchar's films, videos, paintings and drawings, and is organized by San Francisco-based artist Julio Cesar Morales and Mexico City-based artist Miguel Calderon, two of Kuchar's former students.

 

Closing reception Saturday, January 8, 2011, 6-8 pm with artist and curators in attendance.

 

Gallery will be closed December 19-26 for the Holiday break.
