SOMArts Main Gallery presents Night Light - multimedia garden party exploring temporary multimedia, abstract sound, video, and film installations set in the garden of SOMArts Cultural Center.  This exhibition features artwork and performances by the populist yet amorphous group The Something arranged by Justin Hurty, a special series of film installations from the Oddball Films archivist and director Steven Parr, a collection of locally produced ambient sound and video installations, site-specific film installations, and a special not to be missed 3-D film screening by Kerry Laitala.  Featured artists include Mauricio and Christine Ancalmo, Elaine Buckholtz, Paul Clipson, Jon Grover, Justin Hurtey, David O. Johnson, Scott Kildall, Kerri Laitalia, Peter Max Lawrence, Conrad Meyers II, Steven Parr, Skye Thorensen, and Bryan Van Reuter.

 

Night Light investigates a strong local subgenre of sound and installation art in San Francisco that explores visual, light and sound installation art from a place of true abstraction, unhinging the confines of their art from conventions such as painterly formalism, sculptural composition, and time-based editing formalism.
