Barry McGee - "Retrospective at Berkeley Art Museum"

His first major Bay Area solo exhibition since the 1990s, Barry McGee’s mid-career retrospective opened last night at the University of California’s Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. The spiraling structure of the BAM allowed for McGee to reconstruct many of his acclaimed past installations — such as his site-specifc mural at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, which was stolen after its completion, among many others — and leave room for plenty of new surprises. As much an homage to graffiti and street culture as it is a look at McGee’s career so far, the exhibit features many installations with automated dummies caught in the act of doing graffiti, a tribute to McGee’s late wife Margaret Kilgallen and assemblages created by friends and community members.

Chris Timms - "Zooms From Nowhere"

Zooms From Nowhere (Ecology Visions v~0.1) by Chris Timms is part of an ongoing engagement exploring experiential relationships with virtual content streams. Specifically live data and image feeds which accumulate beyond individual narratives into ambient meta-streams. This generation of a visual ambience 'points us to the here and now, in a compelling way that goes beyond explicit content. This going beyond the explicit is the liminal stage of restructuring ones framework of orientation. As ambience blurs the definition between background and foreground, of the explicit here and now as opposed to what is not here and now, it provokes a spatial sense of nowhere and everywhere at the same time.
