DESCRIPTION

As part of the current exhibition ‘Touch Move’, a special event including a timed chess match will take place inside the gallery. The match will be live animated by artist Richard Zimmerman and broadcast to the street outside (via the gallery window). The chess match will be accompanied by a conversation between artists Emma Spertus, Bessie Kunath, and artist/organizer, Rybovich Crallé.

Touch Move presents new work by Bessie Kunath (Los Angeles), Emma Spertus (Oakland), and Richard Zimmerman (New York) and is guest curated by artist Lisa Rybovich Crallé (Oakland). Touch Move is a term borrowed from tournament chess wherein a player is obliged to make a move once their hand touches a piece. The title refers to the long-distance collaboration initiated by the artists, who, in response to each other’s work, play with the logic of meaning between objects, distance, and the built environment. The material-based practices of the artists point to the architectural through manipulations of form, scale-play, and non-functionality. In Touch Move, sculptural objects and architectural intervention work together to reveal an object-image-space-scale vortex that positions materiality as a substrate for cultural interpretation and critique.

Touch Move will be at the gallery through September 24. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday 1-4pm
