Over the years we have published, and in some cases brought to light, some of the most respected and talented artists working today, including R. Crumb, Justin Green, Bill Griffith, Mark Ryden, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Frank Kozik, Todd Schorr, Winston Smith, Spain, Robert Williams, and countless others. Today, we publish 12-20 new titles per year, focusing on ‘lowbrow’ and ‘pop surrealist’ artists, as well as graphic novels and pop culture titles. We also distribute all sorts of weird ‘n’ wonderful subversive literature, graphic novels, tattoo, and art books, supplying them to bookstores and art galleries on six continents.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Ron Turner founded Last Gasp in 1970. Our first publication, Slow Death Funnies #1, came out on the first Earth Day, April 15, 1970. Subsequent comics included the all-women’s comic It Ain’t Me Babe and Skull Comics. Turner’s enthusiasm for underground comics–in particular their autobiographical aspect–has been the driving force behind many groundbreaking publications. Last Gasp published Justin Green’s highly acclaimed confessional Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary in 1972, a book that became an inspiration to many artists now working in the autobiographical style. “Art Spiegelman, who won the only Pulitzer Prize for cartooning, has said he would never have started to do the autobiographical story of his family (in the graphic novel Maus) unless Justin had done it first. And Robert Crumb said the same thing,” said Turner.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Last Gasp books have been glowingly reviewed in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Playboy magazine, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, School Library Journal, Juxtapoz magazine, the Guardian, Hi-Fructose magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Austin Chronicle, American Book Review, and the Los Angeles Times. Last Gasp was named “Best Local Publisher” in 2009, 2010, and 2011 by readers of the San Francisco Bay Guardian. Our offices are located in the Mission District of San Francisco.</span></p> Sat, 22 Feb 2014 15:25:15 +0000 - Johansson Projects - July 6th, 2012 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Age-old folklore renders a vampire's reflection invisible. Anna Fidler suggests that when a post-internet vampire faces the mirror, its simulacrum glitches like a psychedelic computer virus. The exhibition "Vampires and Wolf Men" combines Fidler's traditional taste for exploring supernatural energies with a vampire's taste for blood. She revamps portraits of suspicious looking individuals from the 19th and early 20th centuries, giving them the electric glow of one who has stolen life from another. </p> <p>Fidler sources original photographs from the Oregon Historical Society and electrifies them with echoing landscapes of aura and energy. Their neon vibrations drip into one another like a lucid dream gone haywire. There are also signs of a data overload, with code-like imagery collapsing into a kaleidoscopic meltdown.</p> <p>Although we have all seen our fair share of vampires and werewolves with the entertainment industry's recent lust for bloodsuckers, we've never seen them like this. Fidler opens up a historical archive and infuses it with supernatural hallucinations that would make Dracula dizzy. </p> <p>Show runs June 21- August 4<br />Opening Reception: Friday, July 6, 5-8pm</p> Sat, 22 Feb 2014 15:26:25 +0000 Pamela Z - San Francisco Art Institute - July 6th, 2012 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM <p>Join us this summer for the San Francisco Art Institute's Graduate Lecture Series, and learn from an exciting mix of artists and scholars working in both local and global art communities.</p> <p>This week's lecture features artist Pamela Z who is a composer/performer and media artist. Her solo works combine vocal techniques with electronic processing, samples, gesture activated MIDI controllers, and video. <br /><br /> Lectures are held on Fridays at 6:30 pm at SFAI's 800Chestnut Street campus.

Where recent bodies of work have focused on thematic imagery with reference to mythology or recent history, Hannah's new work distills his complex imagery into more abstracted compositions suggestive of arboreal forms and branching paths staged within and among articulating boundaries.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The exhibition is the artist's eighth solo exhibition at the gallery, where he first showed in 1979. His new works make allusions to earlier bodies of works, in particular the holzwege (woodpaths), as they ruminate on related imagery through explorations of process and vision.</span></p> <blockquote> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"></span><em style="font-size: small;">"The sensual pleasure of perceiving, of thinking through, of attending to dissolution and coagulation drives this work.

To the monotype prints he has added color and texture with oil paint and charcoal.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"></span><span style="font-size: small;">Tucker re-evaluates the vocabulary of shapes in classical sculpture: the head, torso, hands and animal forms (especially horse heads) and addresses them as archetypal experiences. Reviving the practice of executing forms in plaster (to be cast in bronze), he explores volume and mass as it relates to a primal perception. In the 1980's, developing the first works in this new approach, he described his interest,  </span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></p> <blockquote> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><i>"...that a language could be found to express this ancient theme, the standing figure, without reference to its external aspect."</i></span></p> </blockquote> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Tucker's 1974 publication, The Language of Sculpture, is an influential discussion of the discipline and a widely used reference.  The recent monograph, The Sculpture of William Tucker, commissioned by the Henry Moore Foundation and written by Joy Sleeman, provides a complete overview of his works and career.

Influenced by the pulse, beat, and movement of dance and jazz, the seven paintings included in <i>Breaking and Entering</i> are bold compositions marked by fluidity and rhythm.</p> <p> </p> <p>Judith Foosaner’s unique combine works begin with black and white linear drawings on paper, which are then cut, rearranged, and collaged onto the canvas. Guided by the lines, Foosaner applies paint to the collaged surface, resulting in complex compositions that enter into a new formal relationship. In a choreographic gesture, the works investigate line, surface, and movement. The work of Judith Foosaner encapsulates energy and fervor as line and form dance across the surface of the composition, resulting in dynamic and gestural abstractions.</p> <p> </p> <p>About Foosaner’s work, art critic Bill Berkson has written: <i>The semblance of motion as a cumulative traffic of marks and interstices, afloat or scurrying, prompts the view of each painting’s surface as a site of transformation where character is all in the momentum, rather than the congealing, of resilient parts.</i></p> <p> </p> <p><i>Breaking and Entering</i> marks Judith Foosaner’s second exhibition at Brian Gross Fine Art. Works from her series, <i>Moving Violations,</i> were displayed at Brian Gross Fine Art at One Post in 2011.</p> <p> </p> <p>Born in Sacramento, CA, Judith Foosaner received her MA at the University of California, Berkeley. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and is represented in many public and private collections, including the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, the Oakland Museum of California, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock, the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, The San Diego Museum of Art, and The Albuquerque Museum of Art.

The Press, recognized for its importance as a print workshop specializing in etching, celebrates the 50th anniversary of its founding by Kathan Brown in 1962. Chuck Close made his first print, the landmark mezzotint <em>Keith</em>, at the press 10 years later in 1972, breaking artistic ground for the photo-realist artist and initiating a long relationship with the Press. The Fine Arts Museums enters its third decade as the recipient of editioned prints from the Press since its 1991 acquisition of the Crown Point archive; there are now more than 1,500 Crown Point Press-published prints in the collection.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">This exhibition in the Anderson gallery shows the development of Close’s printmaking style at the Press from a tonal process that was akin to his photorealist tendencies to linear mark-making and exposition of the transfer grid that became the hallmark of his painting in the 1970s. </span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Anderson Gallery</span></p> Sat, 02 Jun 2012 18:11:14 +0000 Adam Parker Smith, Guy Overfelt, Sandy Kim, Mark Benson, Jeremiah Jenkins, Mark Mulroney, Chris Ritson, Evan Nesbit - Ever Gold Gallery - July 7th, 2012 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p>Ever Gold Gallery Presents Opening July 7th:</p> <p> </p> <p>A Super Exclusive VIP Invite Only Viewing of:</p> <p> </p> <p>A Summer Group Show</p> <p> </p> <p>*No RSVP Necessary, No Guest list, No Admission Fee, All Welcomed</p> <p> </p> <p>Adam Parker Smith, Guy Overfelt, Sandy Kim,</p> <p>Mark Benson, Jeremiah Jenkins, Mark Mulroney,</p> <p>Chris Ritson and Evan Nesbit</p> <p> </p> <p>Opening Reception Saturday July 7th, 5-10 PM</p> <p>*Chateau Latour Pauillac, 1990, to be served</p> <p> </p> <p>Exhibition runs until: July 21st</p> <p> </p> <p>Special Summer Hours:</p> <p>Friday 12-5</p> <p>Saturday 12-5</p> <p> </p> <p>And by appointment Monday-Saturday</p> <p> </p> <p>All press and sales inquires please contact Ever Gold Gallery</p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p></p> <p> </p> Sat, 22 Feb 2014 15:38:30 +0000 Susan Greene - SOMArts Cultural Center - July 7th, 2012 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">If you visit the exhibition <em></em><i><a href="">Performing Community</a></i> on a Saturday you’re in for a special treat!

A direct response to the financial instability, subprime mortgage crisis and the decline of trust in the government’s ability to effectively address the problems in the labor market, it continues to resonate in the American consciousness. In response to the significant output of art and documentation produced in support of the Occupy Movement in Oakland and San Francisco, YBCA has put together an exhibition of works that have proven to be particularly effective in supporting the goals and aspirations of the Movement. Impressively, various political poster artists devoted their talents to messaging the politics and culture of the movement by creating iconic images — designs that were a call to action, or posters announcing an upcoming event. In many ways these works, by twenty-five Bay Area artists, carry forward the region’s long tradition as a leader in political struggles, from the Free Speech Movement of the 1960s, to struggles by communities of color in the 1970s, to AIDS activism in the 1980s. The exhibition also includes a selection of photojournalistic and documentary photography and video that serve as a record of the events around the Occupy Movement.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Additionally, to connect to earlier movements and provide a historical context for the project, the exhibition includes posters and photographs from other political struggles, including the Black Panther Party, I-Hotel in Manilatown (1968–77); the ARC/AIDS Vigil at City Hall (1985–95); the Occupation of Alcatraz (1969–71); the Free Speech Movement at UC Berkeley (1964–65); and the San Francisco State University protests, to gain an Ethnic Studies program and Black Student Union demands (1968–69).While these earlier movements certainly differ in ways from Occupy, they all are the result of a deep desire for marginalized peoples to be represented and treated fairly.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">This exhibition is not meant to represent a fully executed social history, but is a testament of the power of images to evoke the emotional expression of popular and wide-spread sentiments. By localizing our efforts, we also pay special tribute to the role that Bay Area artists have played in giving voice to the 99% and utilizing art as an effective vehicle for social change.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Poster artists:</strong></span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Rich Black</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Zerena Diaz</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Cannon Dill</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Dignidad Rebelde (Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza)</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Eric Drooker</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Alexandra Fisher</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Dave Garcia</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Ronnie Goodman</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Jason Justice</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Gabby Miller and Miriam Klein Stahl</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Nuclear Winter Art</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Occupy Design</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Political Gridlock (Jon-Paul Bail)</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Cristy C.
