Artist reception Saturday, Sept 14, 6 - 8 PM; Exhibit September 10 through October 31, 2013
Market Street Gallery is very proud to announce Desiderate; a solo exhibition by local San Francisco artist, Calcagno Cullen, an insightful interactive installation consisting of a mix of photo-collages, projected images & engaging elements which captures and illustrates the life of local San Franciscans' dreams and eventual realities. The exhibit will open September 10, 2013, and run through October 31, 2013. The artist reception will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2013, from 6 PM - 8 PM.
In her own words; exhibition statement by Calcagno Cullen:
"Desiderate is about the dichotomy of living and wanton expectations; learning that things aren't always as they seem and that we must push on despite this truth. The photos of my neighbors represent the reality of the city, and will be viewed via a self-advancing slide projector in the corner of the gallery. I will also have an interactive sculptural piece in the middle of the room consisting of two identical typewriters, connected with one loop of the same paper. One typewriter will ask viewers to contribute their "hopes" (for the city or for their own life) in black ink. The other typewriter will be typing in red ink, and will ask viewers to contribute their "fears" (again, for the city or for their own life). Together, the two typewriters will tell a story of hope and despair of the bay area, two stories on the same sheet of paper."
