Opening Sept. 7, 4-7pm, walk-through 3pm; Runs Sept. 7 - Oct. 26
Catharine Clark Gallery (CCG) announces the inaugural exhibition at its new Potrero Hill location, 248 Utah Street. The neighborhood, once heavily industrial, now boasts the presence of many cultural venues, including California College of the Arts (CCA), the recently re-located Wattis Center for Contemporary Arts, The Museum of Craft and Design, and many other newly re-located galleries. Responding to this new location and community, Catharine Clark invited long time gallery artist and CCA faculty member Anthony Discenza to curate an exhibition of artists associated with the school's Fine Arts program. The resulting exhibition "This is the Sound of Someone Losing the Plot" features the work of nine CCA alumni and faculty: Gareth Spor and Piero Passacantando; Bruno Fazzolari; Josh Greene; Stephanie Syjuco; Patricia Esquivias; Arash Fayez; Lauren Marsden; and Kate Bonner. There will be a walk-through of the exhibition at 3 pm, guided by Anthony Discenza and several of the artists, before the opening reception from 4-7pm.
This is the Sound of Someone Losing the Plot recognizes CCA's rich contributions, not merely to the Potrero Flats neighborhood, but to the wider Bay Area arts community. In his first curatorial foray, Discenza focuses on artists whose practices play with (mis)translations between different systems of working or understanding. He notes: "I've attempted to articulate something of the complex interrelationship between material practice and more conceptually diffuse methods of working that distinguishes the CCA community."
