Resource: 9th Street New Media Art Exhibition

Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Dec. 27
Resource: 9th Street New Media Art Exhibition
When curating the upcoming group multimedia exhibit Resource, Lacey Haslam took her cue from the current state of the Bay Area. Specifically, she calls on both tech-industry-induced displacement and the recent drought to draw attention to instances in which communities have been unable to tap into the resources that surround them. “Ironically, while technology aims to help people stay connected, the industry is reconfiguring our communities — the same dehydrated communities that are defined by a body of water that is unavailable for consumption,” she wrote in the curatorial statement. In contrast, Resource hopes to reach as many people as possible. The show will consist of a series of video works by seven artists that will be projected onto storefront windows on 9th Street between Broadway and Washington in Old Oakland. Featuring work by Erik Colleen Johnson, Ellen Lake, Nathan Lynch, Kari Marboe, George Pfau, Jeffrey Augustine Songco, and Doug Garth Williams, the show will illuminate the block, highlighting our collective ability to shape our city — even as it shifts around us.

Making Space

Through Jan. 10, 2015
917-267-9587
Making Space
City Limits Gallery (300 Jefferson St., Oakland) always aims to push conceptual boundaries, forcing the viewer to rethink assumptions by highlighting thoughtful experimentations. So it’s not surprising that the current show, curated to celebrate the launch of its new Flat Files program, focuses on 2-D works that evoke further dimension. Entitled Making Space, the show features six artists from the program, which will showcase the gallery’s collection of flat files through an online gallery and store. All of the artists work primarily in 3-D and time-based mediums, but maintain crucial 2-D elements in their practices. One of these artists is Mary Anne Kluth, who works as a restorative artist at Children’s FairyLand. Kluth grew up in the field with her geologist parents, but is personally more interested in fake rocks. Obsessed with theme parks, she photographically catalogues imitation landscaping at places like Disneyland. Next, she cuts out an arbitrary section using the “magic wand” tool in Photoshop, then collages those sections into layered landscapes reminiscent of late nineteenth-century paintings of sublime nature. Her works probe into the cultural obsession with imitation, highlighting how representations gradually override their sources as mental reference points. Other featured artists include Sarah Hotchkiss, David Lasley, Jodie Mack, Sam Mell, and John Zane Zappas. Free
