After-Hour: Carrie Hott

Through Feb. 1
After-Hour: Carrie Hott
Carrie Hott’s After-Hour, currently on view at Interface Gallery (486 49th St., Oakland), imagines what transpires when the lights go off at the end of the day. The artist has blacked out the windows of the cozy gallery, and turned it into a dimly lit midnight scene, reminiscent of the half-awake dream you might have walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night. By arranging lamp parts into new sculptural configurations, and displaying them with gold foil and blue, wooden cutouts of wavy forms, Hott evokes the play between objects glistening in the moonlight and lurking in the shadows, which opens up a surreal realm of possibility within a familiar space. Hott is also interested in the creative potential in the hours after the work day has ended — that time undesignated to task and rich with possibilities for artists to let loose. In conjunction with the exhibition, Hott has edited a reader that includes sources for her historical research on the cultural meanings of darkness and night, as well as reflections from sixteen other artists. Hott and some of the Hour After Reader contributors will be presenting the 28-page book on Thursday, January 15 from 5­–7 p.m., offering drinks and fascinating insights into the nature of light and darkness.
