6:30 to 8:30
Free and open to public
Please join us to celebrate the opening of two new exhibitions:
Ellen Cantor: Cinderella Syndrome
In her drawings, collages, and videos, the late Ellen Cantor (1961 - 2013) lifts characters and sequences from iconic films, reorienting the ideological transmissions of the source material to include vivid sexual encounters and crisis-ridden relationships.
Carissa Rodriguez: I'm normal. I have a garden. I'm a person.
Carissa Rodriguez is our 2015 Capp Street resident. She follows a personal line of inquiry into everyday life in the Bay Area as it is purportedly being reorganized around the interests of technology industries and their constituents. Through a series of displacements between image, site, and context, the exhibition takes specific design proposals into account in order to ask: what makes life succulent?
