\n

A \; l arge \; swing \; set \; made \; of \; discarded \; desks \; and \; chairs \; stands \; as \; monolithic&nb sp\; and \; unmovable \; \; as \; the \; \; bureauc racy of the public school system itself - \; the whimsies of youth impl ied in the double seated swing \; all \; but \; engulfed \; in \; its \; struct ures. \; \; \; A \; long\,&nbs p\; fracture \; shaped \; bench \; carves \; through \; the \; middle \; of \; the \; \; exhibition \; spa ce\, \; while \; s everal \; wall \; pieces \; of \ ; reframed \; and \; \; hand \; altered \; blue \; prints \; from \; some \; of \; the \; \; closed&nb sp\; schools serve as one bookend \; to \; their \; lifespan .& nbsp\; \;

\n

John \; Preus \ ; is \; an \; artist\, \; builder\, \; fabricator\, \; amateur \; wri ter\, \; musician\, \; and \; collaborator .  \; \; \; He \; founded \; Dilettante \; Studios&nb sp\; in \; 2010\, \; a \; design/build \; studio \; whi ch \; relies \; almost \; exclusively \; on \; second- hand \; materials. \; He worked with Theaster Gates as the Creative Director of the Rebuild Foundation\, an d as the \; lead fabricator in Gates &rsquo\; studio. \; In 2012\, Preus led a crew of builders from Chicago\, Sweden\, Egypt and \; Germany to rehab the vacant Huguenot Ho use in Kassel\, Germany for Theaster Gates&rsquo\; dOCUMENTA 13 \; piec e\, 12 Ballads for Huguenot House. \;

Ancient Egypt meets modern medicine in this exhibitio n that makes use of state-of-the-art scientific techniques to explore two o f the Fine Arts Museums&rsquo\; mummies. An interdisciplinary team of scien tists\, Egyptologists\, physicians\, and museum curators and conservators h as learned more about how these embalmed individuals lived\, died\, and wer e prepared for eternity.

\n

Rebecca Fahr ig and Kerstin Mü\;ller of Stanford University Medical School&rsquo\;s department of radiology have conducted high-resolution\, three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) scans of the mummies\, revealing long-held secrets . The resulting data have been studied by Jonathan Elias of the Akhmim Mumm y Studies Consortium\, who offered much of the interpretation seen in the e xhibition.

\n

One of the mummies investi gated is that of Irethorrou\, a priest from an important family living in A khmim in middle Egypt about 2\,600 years ago. The Future of the Past includes information that has been gleaned about Irethorrou&rsquo\;s lif estyle\, the society in which he lived\, his religion\, and the funerary be liefs of his time. The second mummy\, perhaps 500 years older\, is that of a woman traditionally known as &ldquo\;Hatason.&rdquo\; Neither her mummy n or her coffin has fared as well as those of Irethorrou\, and they present a stark contrast to Irethorrou&rsquo\;s perfectly preserved body.

\n

Visitors can examine both mummies by means of a n interactive virtual dissection table supplied by Anatomage\, a San Jose m edical solutions company. Hauntingly beautiful amulets and tomb furnishings are also displayed.

Mined from the wide-ranging collections of the Fine A rts Museums\, Wild West explores artistic responses to the natural and cultivated landscapes of the western United States from the frontier e ra to the present. The exhibition features paintings\, sculptures\, prints\ , drawings\, photographs\, historical artifacts\, and ephemera in a themati c presentation that celebrates the abundance and diversity within the regio n&rsquo\;s physical environment. This is a companion exhibition to Ed Ruscha and the Great American West.

\n

The American frontier has long existed in the popular imagination as a land of unlimited promise and potential. As the la ndscape has been reshaped throughout history by prospectors\, loggers\, far mers\, and urban developers\, generations of artists have also invented and re-envisioned it in their works to fit the preoccupations of their times. Images of the land&rsquo\;s exploitation contrast with those that document the natural beauty and unique geological features of the region\, including depictions of the Western national parks.

\n

Included in Wild West are works by Albert Bierstadt\, Maynar d Dixon\, William Keith\, Thomas Moran\, Eadweard Muybridge\, Chiura Obata\ , Bill Owens\, Frederic Remington\, Ed Ruscha\, Fritz Scholder\, Michael Sc hwab\, Wayne Thiebaud\, Carleton Watkins\, and other artists\, whose divers e range of approaches to the theme contribute to a multifaceted picture of the American West.

From its natural splendors to its sprawling suburbs a nd congested cities\, California presents myriad realities. Long considered a site of new opportunities and unlimited potential\, the Golden State als o contends with a complicated and constantly changing identity.

\n

The modern and contemporary artists&rsquo\; book s and portfolios on view in California BookWorks feature Californi a subjects and provide visitors with the opportunity to see views of the st ate through the eyes of a range of artists. Some works reflect the historic al promise of California as a land of plenty\, while others foreground the experience of living in some of its largest cities. Most of the books selec ted for the exhibition were made in California-based print workshops and ar e testaments to the vitality here of this engaging art form.

Robert Koch Gallery is pleased to announce Kenneth Josephson: The Light of Coincidence in conjun ction with the recent release of his latest monograph of the same title. Jo sephson has long been recognized as one of the early and most influential A merican practitioners of conceptual photography. The exhibition will showca se Josephson&rsquo\;s ground breaking and highly experimental black and whi te photographs spanning more than six decades. For this third exhibition at the gallery the work will be presented by the following genres in keeping with the monograph: Nature/Landscape\, Man-Made/Urban\, Self-Portrait\, Stu dio/Objects\, Women\, and Family.

Kenneth Josephson is known fo r his conceptual photographs that famously layer pictures within pictures\, focusing on the act of picture making and offering playful commentary on p hotographic truth and illusion. His experiments require the viewer to consi der the act of photography and convey the artist&rsquo\;s desire to questio n the medium and reject the illusion of realism. As an example\, through th e use of hand-held measuring devices\, Josephson constructs parodies of pse udo-scientific inquiry\, ultimately challenging the use of photography as t he ultimate measuring device of &ldquo\;reality.&rdquo\; In Josephson&rsquo \;s photographs it is the photograph itself that assures us that we should question the veracity of photography.

Kenneth Josephson was bor n on July 1\, 1932 in Detroit\, Michigan. He earned a BFA from the Rocheste r Institute of Technology in 1957\, where he studied under Minor White. In 1960\, he earned an MS from the Institute of Design of the Illinois Institu te of Technology\, Chicago\, where he studied with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind. Josephson was a professor at The School of the Art Institute of C hicago from 1967 to 1997\, and a founding member of the Society for Photogr aphic Education. He is the recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship (1972) and two National Endowment for the Arts fellow ships (1975 and 1979). His work is in the collections of numerous instituti ons including the Museum of Modern Art\, New York\; The Metropolitan Museum of Art\, New York\; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\; The J. Paul Getty Museum\, Los Angeles\; Art Institute of Chicago\; Smithsonian American Art Museum\, Washington\, D.C\; Bibliothè\;que National de France\, Pari s\; and Fotografiska Museet\, Stockholm\, among others.

arc refers to a process rather than an author. a curvature within a void which makes something momentaril y visible. a form through which something moves but within which it neither originates nor terminates\, nor is contained.

\n

in this process\, material elements are used to investigate imma terial states. framing the space of encounter as a site of unfixed ritual a nd sensory research - the cinema\, gallery\, studio\, home\, stairwell\, st reet\, etc.\; countless iterations of the the open field or the enclosure. a coded and symbolic and language is used to trace lines between seemingly disparate paths of knowledge held in recurrent forms\, manifesting in oscil lating relationships between microcosm and macrocosm.

\n

throughout the next five weeks City Limits will be the si te of this sensory research. Quadratura Circuli\, an ongoing cycle of arc w orks incorporating 16mm film\, painting\, texts\, sculptures and various ot her objects and instruments to be made in this closed environment\, will be activated by a series of 4 performances open to the public.

\n


arc is usually initiated by tooth\, an artist living in Oakland who has operated the microcinema/archive black hole cine matheque since 2009. their work has been presented locally and internationa lly at Other Cinema\, ATA\, San Francisco Cinematheque\, The Lab\, Shapeshi fters Cinema\, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive\, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\, The Nightingale (Chicago)\, Massart Film Society (B oston)\, NDSM Treehouse (Amsterdam)\, and the Ann Arbor Film Festival\, amo ng others.

Altman Siegel is pleased to pr esent Jessica Dickinson&rsquo\;s second solo exhibition with the gallery ti tled Are:. Featuring new paintings and drawings\, Are: co ntinues the artist&rsquo\;s investigation into themes of time and matter\, exploring the sensation of thought and its engagement with the peripheral a nd minor.

\n

"Making this body of wo rk was anchored by this sentence: 'A light here required a shadow there.'* Each of these three paintings went through extreme darkness\, shadow\, or o bstruction to reach different levels of clarity and demarcation. Incorporat ing loss as a form of structure\, the residue of these actions suggest that the present time&mdash\;or one's perception of it&mdash\;is framed by that which came before.

\n

T he mixed media works on paper present more chromatic intensities\, and are counterpoints to the paintings as they settle into more radiant or defiant tones. The exhibition title 'Are:' proposes a framework of investigation\, in which multiple states of being and time unfold in relation to each other ."

\n

-Jessica Dickinson\, 2016

\n

Dickinson works on thr ee to four paintings concurrently\, building and modulating their fresco-li ke surfaces over the course of a year. Each piece develops anew through the artist's rich material engagement\, shifting consideration of form\, and p hilosophical reflection. Stages of repeated marking\, scraping\, covering\, cutting into and revealing become latent dimensions of touch. The painting s suggest a range of time signatures\, from the radically slow to the lumin ous present. The dense and atmospheric paintings offer an embodied viewing experience\, pursuing abstraction as a space of intimacy through multiple e ncounters and exchanges while resisting hierarchical notions of the sublime . The mixed media works on paper expand upon the fields and delineations wi thin the paintings\, reflecting a similar working process.

\n

Also included in the exhibition are Dickinson's noteb ook drawings. Works in this ongoing series\, exhibited here for the first t ime\, are made of modest colored pencil drawings torn out of their books an d re-joined with linen tape. Reductive and direct\, these daily drawings gi ve notational roots for the paintings\, charting fleeting perceptions and s ensations. Here\, each set corresponds to a painting\, and is presented sta cked as Dickinson arranges them in the studio to order the strata of action s in her paintings.

\n

For several years \, Dickinson has continued to make what she calls remainders\, gra phite rubbings of the surface of the paintings as they go through significa nt changes. These pieces give sequential visibility to the subtle topograph y that is compressed within each work. Monumental in scale\, the full sets are rarely exhibited. A small self-published artist book will accompany the exhibition that includes reproductions of these remainders.

\n

Jessica Dickinson (b. 1975) lives and work s in Brooklyn\, New York. Recent solo exhibitions include James Fuentes\, N ew York\; David Peterson Gallery\, Minneapolis and Maisterravalbuena Galeri a\, Madrid. Numerous group exhibitions include Eleni Koroneou Gallery\, Ath ens\; Asad Raza's The Home Show\, New York\; Sikkema Jenkins &\ ; Co\, New York\; The Kitchen\, New York\; The Warehouse\, Dallas and The Z abludowicz Collection\, London. In 2015\, the first monograph dedicated to Dickinson's work was published by Inventory Press\, which includes an essay by Debra Singer and an interview with Patricia Treib. Her work has been re viewed and included in Artforum\, Art in America\, Th e Brooklyn Rail\, and The New Yorker\, among others.

John Berggruen Gallery is plea sed to present a solo exhibition by Bridget Riley\, the artist&rsquo\;s fir st exhibition in San Francisco. \;Bridget Riley: The Interactive Ch aracter of Color\, 1970-2014 \;will feature a contemporary and his torical selection of Riley&rsquo\;s seminal color paintings\, which shed li ght on her experimentation with color\, form\, light\, and tone. Through he r careful geometric studies and close pairings of color and forms\, Riley e xplores the precarious nature of balance\, looking at the way in which the slightest compositional shift can dramatically transform the tone and natur e of a work\, and how the pairing of disparate colors can alter the viewer& rsquo\;s perception of the true nature of the color itself. This exhibition will explore her various uses of color to address her belief that &ldquo\; everything that would constitute a viable art form had to be found\, discov ered\, re-invented or recreated." \;

\n

Riley began her career creating figurative works that tended towards Im pressionism and experimenting with Pointillism. In 1959 she painted a copy of George Seurat&rsquo\;s \;Bridge of Courbevoie \;to bett er understand his use of perception and color\, a process that was transfor mative to her practice. Riley ultimately came to prominence through her pio neering experimentation with optics and perception\, and today is considere d one of the foremost members of the Op Art movement. Initially taking blac k and white geometric forms as her starting point\, Riley created disorient ing patterns that drew on the repetitive use of a single form to distort th e viewer&rsquo\;s visual field and evoke the feeling of constant movement w ithin the painting&mdash\;what she described as the disruption of stable el ements. She eventual began experimenting with tonalities of gray as well\, before eventually moving on to incorporate color into her works. \;

\n

The exhibition at Berggruen Gallery\, at 228 Grant Avenue in San Francisco\, will explore the formal themes that ru n through her color works\, drawing attention to the way these careful stud ies of color and form converge in her mature works\, which at once elicit t remendous vibrancy and\, at the same time\, great restraint. Of this practi ce she once said\, &ldquo\;At the core of color lies a paradox. It is simul taneously one thing and several things &ndash\; you can never see color by itself\, it is always affected by other colors&hellip\;Color relationships in painting depend on the interactive character of color\; this is its esse ntial nature.&rdquo\; Limiting her palette in each work to a select handful of colors\, Riley creates works that show the dynamism of color through co ntrast\, repetition\, and juxtaposition\, looking at the way colors fuse by being placed next to each other\, and how those pairings alter our percept ion of that color. \;

\n

In these wo rks\, Riley uses color as a form itself\, changing the way it is positioned on the canvas in relation to other color forms to achieve the same sense o f lifelike activity and movement that she had previously achieved with geom etric forms\, demonstrating that color perception is not static\, but relat ive and contingent upon context. With works from 1970 to 2014 on view\, thi s survey exhibition will highlight Riley&rsquo\;s ongoing fascination with unexpected color palettes and her thought-provoking use of space on a canva s\, looking at the way her earliest exploration of color has carried throug h to a dynamic contemporary practice. \;
