Film still from Transient

Art invades the streets via New York City cabs.
From September 9 through September 15, visual artist Amir Baradaran will debut TRANSIENT, a series of 40-second video installations infiltrating NYC taxicabs for one week. “TRANSIENT is intended as an ephemeral gift, foregrounding the possibilities of liminal states. Baradaran seeks to capture, challenge and transform the everyday modalities of NYC cab rides by interrupting Taxi TV’s regular programming flow in 6,300 taxicabs, to be viewed by approximately 1.5 million passengers. Using the technology against itself, TRANSIENT solicits focus in a space marked by dispersed attention and invisible human boundaries. Comprised of shots of a driver’s steady gaze in the rear-view mirror or through the grainy, often-stained plexiglass partitions, the incisive videos take the experiential disjuncture between the driver and passenger as their point of departure. ‘It was not my intention to make a humanist statement,’ says Baradaran, ‘but rather to create a space of introspection.'”

"Psychopomps" exhibition on view: 7/21 - 09/25/10

Our favorite artist/taxidermist, Polly Morgan is currently showing with Haunch of Venison, London.  Her new show Psychopomps features four suspended taxidermy sculptures, each poised between metamorphosis and flight. The pieces are so extravagant and beautiful, no one would be able to mistake the pieces for roadkill (note to Courtney Love’s assistant).

Just because....two older pieces that are not in the exhibition, "Dead Ringer" and "Receiver"

Cristina Velazquez's piece titled "Zigzag Catalog World"

Mad World: Messages to the Future, an exhibition featuring work by fourteen artists that imagine the future in 40 years through a fictional history of objects. In considering work for the exhibition, the artists were asked to ponder the statement, ‘If you’re interested in the future, invent it.” Responses range from both the artistic representation of objects 40 years from now, to witty and thoughtful statements about our cultural evolution. Through works such as future almanac entries, nomad friendly furniture and functional objects made from discarded material, the exhibition will display a unique imagining of what’s to come.

Artists presenting work: Jose Arenas, Carlos Castro, Emael, Chris Granillo, Hector Dio Mendoza, Johanna Poethig, Lady Reni, Joshua Short, Jose Antonio Suarez, Robert Trujillo, Christina Velazquez, Rio Yanez, and Marilyn Yu.

Opening Reception: May 08 at 7:30. Galería de la Raza is located at 2857 24th Street, San Francisco
