a scattered poem sounds good.

once i wrote a paper

with a friend

based on something i can't remember right now,

where we both wrote sequential random sentences or maybe evenly

divided what we wrote somehow

- but basically it was kind of half-blind writing - or maybe we pulled out

each sentence from a hat...

i stayed at home today

it's finally quiet at my house

warm winter, no snow

3 kids getting ready for school

a bit of commotion

they were pretty quiet

everyone is pretty sleepy in the morning

the surprise of what will happen

how to say that in a press release

as opposed to what we wrote

kids will come to see our show

bringing me back to the present, explain or communicate it in some way

paintings would get sent from NY

starting from the wall and moving to the center,

haven't moved beyond the adjective: a rectangle shape, not too long, but

not like a square

the entrance is on a short end...descend the stairs and then

enter the rectangle

a cool long narrow awkward stairway

straightforward, clean, white and bright

contrast

chinatown

do studio-drop-bys

much easier in dialogue

other ways to build bridges or connections than by looks/shapes/aesthetics

not necessarily building them but suggesting them

golden gate

other thans

golden than

just throwing out another idea!

fragmented. is there a connection?

maybe the connection on your end slowed? a connection in that it's open,

like

or - maybe i misunderstood

open like the process

slow connection

slopen

slowing down to

be with it

mix with it

longing for...

its evening here, and

i need the dictionary sometimes

evening and morning thoughts and spaces

like working at night

all exist together equally as is with no direction and with no non-direction

letting tangents move us around for a bit

make some work and fun

immingle, underlying,

making it to the studio.

get along well with men

prefer women

male vibe

that vibe

be male

mixed vibes

macho art

(flex)

Margaret was kind of the starting point. I met her at the "Miss Read"

publication fair, she had her booth next to our magazine, in Berlin, and

she was so sweet to tell Laurie about my coming to CA and that we could

make a show happen and you Laurie made it happen. Thanks, Margaret!

Alter-Circuit: Virlani Hallberg


Dates:
Wed Sep 25, 2013 19:00 - Fri Dec 06, 2013

Location:
San Francisco, California
United States of America

Alter-Circuit: Virlani Hallberg features the single-channel video Receding Triangular Square (RTS) (2012), a collaboration between the artist and the psychoanalyst and cultural theorist Leon Tan. RTS explores philosophies and practices of healing in Taiwan that are alternative to the dominant Euro-American psychiatric and psychotherapeutic paradigms. Through a juxtaposition of Daoist rituals, traditional healing methods, and Western-style psychiatry, RTS looks into the history of colonization and modernization in Taiwan and questions the universality and rationality of scientific truth. Forms of displacement and alienation are experienced not only as mental despair and illness, but also on a historical scale through the long-lasting destruction of culture in the modern world.

Alter-Circuit: Virlani Hallberg inaugurates a long-term collaboration between ACAC and Et. al. Focusing on diasporic practices, particularly those coming into conflict and contact with Asia, Alter-Circuit works closely with an individual artist over a period of time. Through durational endeavors, Alter-Circuit draws paths into and out of the artist’s practice while other collaborators, including curators, writers, publishers, scholars, and art communities, are invited to participate in the conversations.

Alter-Circuit: Virlani Hallberg will continue with the artist’s presence in San Francisco later this year for a series of public programs. During that time, it will have a life online as a blog to expand the topics and widen both the audience and the circle of participants.

Alter-Circuit is conceived and curated by Xiaoyu Weng, Aaron Harbour, and Jackie Im.

Aaron Finnis: New Works


Dates:
Fri Aug 16, 2013 19:00 - Sat Sep 14, 2013

Location:
San Francisco, California
United States of America

The object as messenger

As intermediary, as immutable screen

Color as mediated reflection

Wow and flutter

Time and volume as borne by distance, area

Data like taffy: pulled, dyed

Et al. is pleased to announce the first Bay Area solo show of artist Aaron Finnis.

Finnis' work deals with the minimum/maximum information contained in the work of art. Finnis uses data storage as material and form, minimal color and patterns applied in precise ordered methods.

There will be a variety of new works all of which are in production currently; we are excited for their imminent arrival.

August 16 - September 14, 2013

An exhibition which comes and goes as it pleases


Dates:
Fri Jul 26, 2013 19:00 - Sat Aug 10, 2013

Location:
San Francisco, California
United States of America

An exhibition which comes and goes as it pleases
will first arrive July 26th at Et al., with a reception from 7-10pm. There will initially be works by:
Sean Talley
Laurie Reid
Claire Nereim
Rick Bahto and Julia Holter

AN EXHIBITION WHICH COMES AND GOES AS IT PLEASES drifts into view in the gaps between other programs and may hide, linger, and/or reemerge. It appears often only from a certain angle like a single frame in a lenticular or the screen of an ATM. It is lithe and unrooted.

It will arrive on July 26, 7:00-10:00pm, and depart on August 10.

Gallery hours are Thursday-Saturday, 1:00-5:00pm and by appointment

For more information visit the website, etaletc.com or contact the gallery at projects.et.al@gmail.com
