Headlands Center for the Arts:
Exhibition opening and Sunday supper
It is a pleasure to partner with the Headlands Center for the Arts to celebrate a vibrant fall exhibition program, including presentations from two of the center’s Artists in Residence, Will Rogan and Edra Soto.
As a part of festivities, Aesop clients are invited to vie for a seat at a communal Sunday supper, which will follow the opening reception. Please note spaces are strictly limited and will be awarded to those who reply most swiftly.
No Human Eyes by Will Rogan – hailing from the Bay Area, this multidisciplinary artist combines documentary photography with sculptural handmade ceramics. Expect an opposition between austere, rugged environments and the human proclivity for sensual form and function. On view through November 17.
Open 24 Hours by Edra Soto – this Chicago-based artist’s main concern is investigating the points of connection and separation between class and race in post-colonial representations. Through the intimate documentation of Chicago’s East Garfield Park via photography and architectural interventions, the exhibit invites visitors to add to the detritus which forms the makeup of the city. On view through November 17.
Headlands’ campus of multidisciplinary art spaces is housed in barracks and structures that once made up military installation Fort Barry. Today, these artist-rehabilitated buildings act as galleries, studios and residency spaces for emerging and established practitioners from the Bay Area and farther-flung shores. Their collective output is influenced by the center’s mission to act as an incubator for original thought, with an emphasis on the creative process, collaboration, and innovation.
‘I think that one’s art is a growth inside one. I do not think one can explain growth. It is silent and subtle.’
