to here knows when

An exhibition featuring works by five emerging San Francisco artists who through creative metamorphosis, challenge the viewer's perception of his/her surroundings by re-imagining everyday objects, space and time.

The title is appropriated from a song by the band My Bloody Valentine who generates a simultaneously epic and ethereal sonic landscape for the listener. Paired with an improper arrangement of common English words,
To Here Knows When, like the artists in the show, activates the tensions between definable and indefinable.

Allison Taylor, Christopher Willey, David Marc Grant, Laura Boles Faw and Marcela Florez
