Western Bridge is closing in August of 2012, ending an eight-year run that felt like a lifetime of art experiences created exclusively for the Northwest. While the current exhibit, Repossessed, engages questions of its legacy and collection directly, I want to focus on a single piece as the jumping off point for a commentary on the nature and importance of this space.

      It may be obvious that curators in the art world would appear pretty ridiculous even attempting to moonlight as professional basketball players, but the reverse, it turns out, is not true: professional basketball players can, in fact, moonlight as curators. The Flag Art Foundation is responsible for revealing this perplexity, and the show Size DOES Matter, curated by Cleveland Cavalier Shaquille O’Neal, proves that pro-ball players do not play the curation game like curators do. This is... [more]

Material Witness brings together works of art from the Berkeley Art Museum collection, ranging from Francisco Goya's The Disasters of War to new acquisitions such as Carrie Mae Weems's The Capture of Angela, that can be seen as forms of witness. Evidencing truths and questioning commonly held beliefs in modes that vary from reportage to activist response, the works in Material Witness offer distinctive, often critical views of current affairs and cultural memory. Goya's famous series of eighty-fiv... [more]

  The group show, “All of This is Melting Away,” at Royal-T art space presents the work of 33 diverse artists in an imaginative, enlivening, and vibrant array of painting, mixed media, sculpture, pottery, and light and sound installation. Each of the 43 works somehow indicate a quality of fluctuation and variability, as implied by the show’s title, and suggest the motif of melting by combining mediums, blurring subjects, and experimenting with space. The show as a whole destabilizes categorizat... [more]
