Participating members from San Francisco's Board of Supervisors have a history of showcasing local artists in their City Hall offices.  In addition to the exposure to the many daily visitors to each Supervisor's office this outreach opportunity reinforces the importance of visual arts by acting as an ever-present reminder that San Francisco has a vibrant arts community that actively supports and influences the cultural fabric of San Francisco.  Artists participating in this exhibit represent a diverse collection of contemporary approaches to art making in the Bay Area (traditional and new media painting materials and techniques, photography, collage,  printmaking, and sculpture) highlighted by the inclusion of artists of Asian / Pacific Islander heritage in honor of May’s Asian / Pacific Islander Heritage Month designation.  Curated by Matt McKinley / McKinley Art Solutions, sponsored by Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center, Vinay Patel, Executive Director.

Participating Supervisors include:

David Chiu (President of the Board of Supervisors) - District 3
 
John Avalos- District 11 
 
Eric Mar- District 1
 
Jane Kim- District 6
 
concurrent exhibit in the offices of:
David Campos– District 9
 

Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center's mission is to support and produce multi-disciplinary art reflective of the unique experiences of Asian Pacific Islanders living in the United States. founded in 1996 by representatives of five nonprofit arts groups: Asian American Dance Performances, First Voice, Asian Improv aRts, the Asian American Theater Company and Kearny Street Workshop. Since 1998, the Center has promoted the artistic and organizational growth of the City’s Asian/Pacific arts community by organizing and presenting the annual United States of Asian America Festival. APICC collaborates with both emerging and well-established groups allowing these groups access to APICC’s wealth of production and fundraising know-how. In addition, APICC provides free performance and rehearsal space to these groups in addition to general organizational consulting. Our goal is to nurture and empower these groups to be self-sufficient and self-reliant while providing the support they need to grow. APICC is funded by the California Arts Council, Consortium of Cultural Centers, Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund, San Francisco Arts Commission, Zellerbach Family Fund, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, W A Gerbode Foundation, and individual contributors.

Assemblage derives much of it connection to an audience through nostalgia and familiarity.  By creating a new reality for discarded objects guided by their own aesthetic and, often, sympathetic (if not empathetic) responses, each artist in this exhibition reassembles familiar objects in unfamiliar ways to challenge our assumptions about the limits of usefulness of ‘ordinary’ objects and to speak to our general curiosities around connecting 'humanity' to inanimate objects.

QIY - Queer It Yourself: Tools for Survival
Opening Reception June 4
1pm

Free event

 

QIY - Queeer it Yourself

QIY - Queer It Yourself: Tools for Survival
June 4 – 23, 2011

Opening Reception June 4

QIY curatorial committee:
Terri Berlier, Josh Faught, Jordy Jones, Rudy Lemcke (Chair), Matt McKinley, Pamela Peniston, and Tina Takemoto.

Exhibition Coordinator: Nicki Green

Exhibition Design: Matt McKinley

Opening Reception: Beth Pickens

Special thanks to: Anthony Privatera, Justin Hoover, Visual Aid, and the GLBT Historical Society.

Inspired by the late 1960s utopian builders’ guide A Whole Earth Catalog, QIY: Queer It Yourself – Tools for Survival presents a forum for queer do-it-yourself culture and alternative world making.

QIY is envisioned as a laboratory for creating a sustainable queer culture and demonstrating the power of self and community organizing, re-creation, speculation, and transformation. As an antidote to anti-sociality theories of queerness (that suggest queerness can only be rendered as a negation of heteronormativity), Queer It Yourself invites artists to forge their own tools for confronting the everyday challenges of contemporary queer existence.

The exhibition presents artists’ workstations, participatory spaces, hands-on training sites, maps, artwork, ephemera, and user-friendly art that foreground immersive and interactive experiences. These works demonstrate how art can provide active and meaningful tools for surviving our contemporary lived world.

The curators have queered the index of the original “Whole Earth Catalog” and adapted its thoughtful and useful categories to reinvent our own catalog of queer tool-making and to frame this QIY space.

Land Use / Dig it (organic farming, community gardens, eco-projects, cruising sites, earthworks, recycling projects).

Being is the unavoidable expression of one’s true persona, a constant flow of inner voices sometimes in harmony, sometimes in discord. In a world where actions speak louder than words beingmeans that at all times we affect and are subsequently affected by everything and everyone we touch, feel and see.
 
The artists represented in Humans, Being have produced their respective bodies of work based on their inherently unique observations about life in order to create the peculiar characters that inform each narrative.  Matt McKinley, curator

NATIONAL QUEER ARTS FESTIVAL 2010

 


Ms. Africa by Greg Day
June 5
CHRONOTOPIA: The Past, Present and Future of Queer Histories
Opening Reception
SOMArts
3pm - 6pm
Free

Chronotopia - Too
Co-presented with the LGBT Community Center
1800 Market St, 3rd Floor
June 8 - July 16
Special Reception for the LGBT Center's Pride Party

A selection of work from Chronotopia exhibition will be on display at the LGBT Center through July 16
June 19th - $25
Music, Performances and lotsa cocktails on the roof (be careful!)

Where can you see images of the first African-American drag queen crowned "Ms Gay Charleston, South Carolina, 1978” alongside beautiful 1958 beefcake boys and gun-toting cowgirl lesbians? Where do trans crafters meet specters of Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Emily Duckinson?  

CHRONOTOPIA, the National Queer Arts Festival’s annual visual arts exhibition explores the past, present and future of queer people that will permanently alter the way you think about queer art and history.

In keeping with the theme of this year’s National Queer Arts Festival, “Making History,” a panel of distinguishedcurators (Cheryl Dunye, Tirza True Latimer, Rudy Lemcke, Matt McKinley, Pamela Peniston and Tina Takemoto) present an exhibition that engages Queer History as its catalyst.

This exhibition captures the multiple dimensions of queer time and place; locates queer lives in relation to complex communities; and remembers historical moments that are framed and re-framed by the present. It also offers alternative approaches to the historical record that challenge a fixed chronology of events and complicate the idea of memory.

The exhibition’s multidimensional visions of our queer history suggest limitless potentialities and vantage points, where conflicting desires and narratives coexist, where ghosts converse with the living, where we imagine impossible possibilities, and where we record our histories in new and challenging ways--Chronotopia.

Meet and mingle with artists from California and beyond over reception drinks and nosh! Performances during the reception by members of EG Crichton’s The Lineage Project sponsored by the the GLBT Historical Society. Exhibition and reception funding by the Zellerbach Family Foundation and the CA LGBT Arts Alliance.

CHRONOTOPIA is presented as part of the SOMArts Affordable Space Program. SOMArts receives funding from the San Francisco Arts Commission with support from Grants for the Arts / Hotel Tax Fund.

Threads Curatorial Statement

Queerness weaves the threads of our physical, social and moral existence together into a multi-dimensional fabric of community and our selves.

As queer artists we continue to create complex identities and imagine new modes of address through a myriad of queer tactics, textures and sensibilities.

What are the threads that bind, mend and sometimes unravel this spectacular fabric of queer art? How does this queerness operate? How does it present itself? How do we fashion, perform, subvert or display queerness in our art and lives?

We hope to explore these themes in art in all mediums that incorporate (in the broadest sense of these ideas): sewing, knitting, weaving, braiding, binding, knotting, textiles, quilting, patchwork, costuming, fashion and fashion events, drag, second skins, performance art, woven texts, blogs, digital networks and communities.
