Guest curator Glen Helfand will make remarks, and there’ll be short, lively discussions between our curators and Bay Area artists in the galleries. Daniel Hyatt, drink-making extraordinaire formerly of Alembic, will be demonstrating the creation of a special cocktail he’s made with Proximities artist Andrew Witrak. Said special cocktail will be available at the cash bars.
- New media artist/composer Surabhi Saraf, who has a background in experimental and Indian music, along with collaborator Ian Smith-Heisters will create a live performance with surround sounds and visuals.
- Fresh art, music by DJ Jacob Sperber (Honey Soundsystem), cash bars, the museum at dusk in the summertime…just your usual good-time art-lovin’ fare.
What is Asia? Its influences are everywhere and we each encounter it differently, be it through lineage or pop culture. Some of the Bay Area’s most exciting artists—Elisheva Biernoff, Lisa K. Blatt, Ala Ebtekar, James Gobel, Tucker Nichols, Larry Sultan, Andrew Witrak—will answer this question in Proximities, a series of three intimate exhibitions. This is the first installment, about landscapes imagined and real. The second and third will open later in the year. / On exhibit May 24 to July 21, 2013
