Curated by Robert Andrade

 

Please join us Saturday for ARCHIPELAGO.  Michael Ashkin and Roxanne Yamins are making the trip from New York and Timothy Earl Neill will be putting his coursework at the University of Notre Dame on hold in order to be in attendance.  Rob has lined up a very special surprise guest that will be flying in from Los Angeles Saturday evening to perform at the opening.  And I am happy to report that Farrah made the drive down from The Bay Area yesterday to get The Gift Shop ready.  Help us welcome all these folks that made the effort to get to San Diego.  Saturday, 10/17/15, 8PM.

From the curator:


ARCHIPELAGO consists of four artist working in varied methods and styles including sculpture, painting, photography, video and performance. Michael Ashkin’s current work is a series of spray­paint paintings or “Constructed Photographs” on cardboard that deal with the urban landscape, spatial politics and are reminiscent of early photography. Accompanying these works are small sculptures that point to a primitive future and a primitive past. Assembling various objects and utilizing mirrored surfaces with seductive textures, Roxanne Yamins’s sculpture introspectively addresses the idea of sexuality in commodity culture. Timothy Earl Neill’s video work consists of a firework sign set on a romantic horizon. All of which cause us to think about the difference between land and landscape and if the idea of tomorrow exist only in myth. Finally, there will be a guest performer whose work is focused on issues of race, state power and everyday experiences.
