20150901210131-5 The Best Non-Profits Art Spaces in San Francisco   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 9/1/15

Like other industries, the art world should come under the scrunity of fair and equitable business practices. With so much privatization in the gallery and museum world, it's as good a time as any for consumers of culture to question where funds come from—and where profits are going. This summer, we're seeking out the best not-for-profit and community conscious art spaces in the most commercial cities on the global art circuit. As part of our mission to give art a social slant, the third... [more]

20150708125705-4 Private Debt/Public Value: Art Education's Social Responsibility   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 7/8/15

There have been a lot of articles about the rise of education debt accrued by students in the United States, especially where arts-focused degrees are concerned. Few degrees these days can guarantee employment, regardless of the field, and it is becoming increasingly hard to justify the value of an art degree that has the least hope of creating jobs for its future graduates. Yet grad school admissions skyrocketed shortly after the 2007/08 economic crash, when the stakes for getting a new job shifted from life expe... [more]

Posted 6/1/15

Sabine Reckewell and Samantha Bittman are two artists that are each working with textiles in the contemporary moment. Using rigorous systems that require a tremendous amount of planning before making and building can begin, both artists have an acute respect for order that enables their work to conjure awe bordering on the inconceivable. Each studied textiles in undergrad, though several generations apart; Reckewell received a BS at UC Davis in 1976, and Bittman a BFA from RISD in 2004. Reckewell... [more]

Aside from artMRKT, two other art fairs happened in San Francisco this past weekend: StARTup Art Fair and Parking Lot Art Fair. Each attempted to unfold controversial aspects of what it means to gather en masse, and to expose the public to a variety of artists in one place for a concentrated amount of time. The venues missed and seized opportunities, respectively, and each presented their own set of risks surrounding the art fair model. Parking Lot Art Fair installation view, held at the ar... [more]

Collecting art as a narcissist hobby is the most virulent kind of collecting, whereas collecting as a means of humble support seems to be the approved model—at least in San Francisco. A recent art panel in the city attempted to discern a difference between San Francisco and Los Angeles collectors. Moderated by LA gallerist Mieke Marple (Night Gallery), the panelists were Sofya Polyakov of Noun Project (LA), Sabrina Buell of Zlot Buell art advisors (SF), Jessica Silverman of Jessica Silver...

Posted 3/24/15

From the Gold Rush to the Psychedelic era, through the tech boom and bust of the 1990s, San Francisco has been a mecca for prospectors, freaks and geeks, and mainstream challengers. But the city's hold on such monikers has been challenged lately, with populations touted as the “best and brightest” flooding in to work for major tech corporations and affecting the cultural landscape. San Francisco is currently in a heightened state of what the Situationists, particularly Guy Debord, referred... [more]

Miriam Böhm at Ratio 3 March 13th - April 25th
Posted 3/18/15

Arriving at the magic hour before dusk, light poured in from the skylights, casting rectangular shapes with shadow lines on the back wall of the gallery, near an assortment of three stoic yet surprisingly dynamic sculptures on pedestals. The sculpture series—titled Mutual—is an exciting new direction for Miriam Böhm, whose work has always incorporated multiple planes or three dimensional elements; until now the end result has always been a photograph. There are a total of five phot... [more]
