In the corner of the gallery, there are cats. I personally don’t think you can go wrong with cat art. Sold! But the sketches of cats by Dale Hoyt and Steve Thurston, upon closer inspection, are disturbing (albeit pleasantly).

Chinatown is a flurry of storefronts and enterprising hawkers selling imported goods out of the box, right there on the sidewalk. As a satellite of the exhibition, Present TENSE Biennial – Chinese Character-, presented by the Chinese Culture Center on Kearny Street, nine storefront windows facing the bustling streets of Chinatown contain artist installations.  The installations themselves are curious— Imin Yeh’s random household objects wrapped in patterned cloth, which quietly comments...

    The most successful work in Cantocore: Free on Board not only investigates the nuanced layers of trade and culture between Guangzhou and San Francisco, but also incorporates translation/mis-translation, authenticity/reproduction, and the copy-of-a-copy-of-a-translation spirit.

Curators Justin Hoover, Fang Lu, and Jon Phillips invited six San Francisco-based artists and six Gua... [more]

Most of these censored books you would recognize as the classics, those pieces of literature wh... [more]
