Local Events during FOG

tuesday, January 10

Nicole Wermers: Grundstück

Opening Reception
Jessica Silverman Gallery
6:00—8:00 p.m.

Wermers creates sculptures, collages and installations, whose humor and deep psychological resonance derive from their diverse subversions. They sabotage their objects’ original function, radically rethink unusual combinations of materials, and destabilize expected spatial and social hierarchies.

The Legacy of Surrealism

A talk by Jodi Roberts, Halperin Curator for Modern & Contemporary Art at Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University
Gallery Wendi Norris
6:00—8:00 p.m.

The Legacy of Surrealism delves into the great variety of transgressive subjects, themes and radical approaches to artmaking pioneered by the Surrealist movement. This talk coincides with the Cantor Arts Center’s exhibition on view entitled The Conjured Life: The Legacy of Surrealism. This event provides insight into the movement’s enduring grip on the imaginations of artists in the United States and around the world.

Yves Klein’s
Monotone-Silence Symphony

Grace Cathedral
6:00 p.m. doors open | 6:30 p.m. performance starts

Lévy Gorvy is pleased to present Yves Klein’s groundbreaking Monotone-Silence Symphony, a bold work by the acclaimed artist primarily known for his monochrome paintings and metaphysical explorations. Performed only once during Klein’s brief lifetime, this extraordinary piece will be mounted for the first time in San Francisco and only the third time in the U.S., in partnership with the landmark Grace Cathedral and in collaboration with the Yves Klein Archives. Artsy is the online partner.

Reception for the Artist
Crown Point Press
6:00—8:00 p.m.

TL Dreams by rea lynn de guzman

Opening Reception
Tenderloin Museum
6:00—9:00 p.m.

Rea Lynn de Guzman is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores psychological and socio-political themes surrounding liminal identity, cultural assimilation, and the Filipino/a diaspora, tempered by her experience as a Filipina immigrant living in the United States. At the age of fourteen, she emigrated from the Philippines to the United States with her single mother, settling eventually in San Francisco. She lived in the Tenderloin—at Turk and Taylor Streets—where she spent most of her formative years (circa 2000-2005).

Friday, January 13—Sunday, january 15
