A Dialog With Chance Free Staff Pick

When: Fridays. Continues through May 31 2019
The exploration of accident, part of modern art since the Dadaists and Surrealists, is at the center of Peter Foucault’s multimedia show, A Dialog with Chance. Comprising screenprints; ink drawings on paper, wood, and aluminum (AluPoly); a performance-related sculpture and video; and performances, one with a drawing robot, the other with a costumed musician playing a homemade didgeridoo; the exhibition explores the idea of art practice as a collaboration between the artist, the audience, and various tools and materials. The drawings are made without human gestures, that shibboleth of Abstract Expressionism: the ink is blown while the substrates are tilted, causing the ink to flow into rivulets and tendrils that suggest geography, roadways, and, occasionally, the human nervous system; Foucault also makes unusual ‘brushes’ for striking the drawings, causing explosive spattering. — Dewitt Cheng Through May 31, check website for hours, free, Pro Arts, 150 Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, ProArtsGallery.org
