RVCA and VASF are proud to present Golden State. A series of three events showcasing some of the finest and most talented artists California has to offer.

The concept for Golden State elaborates on a previous exhibition we initiated in October of 2008 called Locals Only. In this we invited a group of San Francisco based artists to take over our gallery and explore their talents, we now look to expand our horizons too all of California. With this resource we invite our favorite artists to participate in this presentation. By gathering a broader community we refine our focus, exhibiting work that shows how much we all love this great state. Golden State expands on how the essence of California has found its way into all of our work. Within this land is the opportunity to embrace diversity and strive against the status quo. The creation of new and expanding thought allows any individual to express him or herself without the judgment that lies elsewhere. With Golden State the artists challenge themselves to show how California is inside of us all; emotionally, spiritually, and physically. We are happy to have over 50 artists that can each make different claims on how they express this through their work.

In the third and final installment of RVCA and VASF’s series Golden State: Sculpture and Media we open our gallery up to a predominately female group. Supporting this diversity and having each artist apply their own take on the freethinking California spirit that RVCA fosters, we allow them to deviate from the original sculptural form. Though a variety of viewpoints each artist shows their own take on these traditions, and does not always follow the convention of a sacred sculptural object. Artists such as Sasha Krieger, who contacted dead artists through a homemade Ouija Board for inspiration, and Emily Dippo, whose work takes take art from physical interaction and participation, help push the limits of what is expected from a sculpture.
