We would like to highlight an event for our very own artist John-Mark Ikeda. Ikeda will be showing his newest body of work in “What Suits Us” exhibiting at the Diego River Gallery Monday, April 4th through April 8th. The artist reception is Tuesday, April 5th from 5 PM – 7:30 PM with an artist talk beginning at 4:30 PM and is open to the public. We will be there in support and celebration of Ikeda’s new work, hope to see you as well.
In light of Ikeda’s show, we ran across this article last week that shed some insight and humor on conceptual art and the mundane.
The article was written as a response to the exhibition “Isn’t it Obvious? San Francisco Artists Consuming the Banal an exhibition of newly commissioned work by Arthur/Allan, Matthew Kennedy, Kristina Lewis, Jasmin Lim, Daniel Nevers and Lindsey White.” The exhibition took place January 21st through April 2nd, 2011 at the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery.
