Was there really such a thing as the Mission School? Energy That Is All Around, an exhibition at the San Francisco Art Institute’s Walter and McBean Gallery, tackles this question, taking a survey approach to a lot of early and some new artworks by five artists: Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee and Ruby Neri. In its gallery guide, the exhibition explains upfront that it is not meant to be an inclusive survey and implies that it’s not an argument for th... [more]

A short and incomplete list of pseudonyms employed by Barry McGee: Ray Fong Lydia Fong Bernon Vernon P.KinRay VirgilTwistTwisterTwistyTwisto A pseudonym is a way to stay hidden in public. Across racy novels, political tracts, city walls, a pseudonym is a public declaration that manages to stay secretive. A fake name presumes some reason for hiding, some illicit activity: the novel passes risque into pornographic, the political tract verboten samizdat, the city wall graffitied with a blushing splatter...

The end of summer is a strange moment. The energy of back-to-school jitters permeates everything. Fashion releases its flimsiest glossies in preparation for the cinder-block September issues. Galleries shutter, giving their artists and proprietors a chance to check in with the Midwest and assure their families that they’re getting enough to eat and thus return to September a few pounds thicker for the fall previews. New York and Paris turn into sweaty metropolitan ghost-towns, those with means hav... [more]

There is something wonderfully untamed about street art. Not the basic tags that tarnish everything they touch, but real street art by artists who display their talent in unlikely places and express their experience of urban life through their work. These artists are inspirational in their defiance of the gallery space, and bringing art to the average person as they go about their business is no mean feat. In fact, it could be argued that taking art out on to the streets makes it infinitely more ac... [more]

I’m sitting at a Starbucks on the edge of Beverly Hills, across from Armani Exchange. Next to me two customers discuss their “nail situation” and their colorist–a blond expert–with a gravitas usually reserved for the War Room. After all it is Oscar party weekend. I couldn’t help comparing the magnitude of this battle with the one being fought less than five miles from here, in West Hollywood, where a defunct Big Lots houses “Manifest Equality,” promoting equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual, an...

“They Knew What They Wanted” invokes something in-between a hit-man’s overture and a ‘50s girl-group’s jukebox breakup. But instead the phrase serves as the title of an exhibition that spans four commercial galleries in San Francisco: Altman Siegel, John Berggruen, Fraenkel, and Ratio 3. Each gallery asked a different artist from their roster to select the works from the backrooms, storage shelves, and flat files of all four spaces, yet the results are posited as a single exhibition.

        The third installment of Brian Nuda Rosch’s Paper! Awesome! show at Baer Ridgeway picks up where the previous two left off and with the same premise: limit artists to an 8 ½ by 11 paper canvas (with a notable few exceptions) and a relatively short time frame. The resulting works offer an intriguing cross-section of young and young-ish artists working with a broad range of media. Sprawling over the two level exhibition space, the install certainly has the look of diversity, ranging from... [more]

        Giant leviathans have dunked their claws into thick chemical pigment, and have traversed, torn, bombed the walls of Boulevard Raspail in the 14th arrondissement in Paris, scaling the glass rims of Fondation Cartier and its neighbouring walls, parking lots, garbage bins, lamp posts and benches… Or so it seems, until you inch closer and detect language and empathetic human voices in these markings.  The Born in the Streets graffiti show at the Fondation Cartier attempts, extrinsicall...
