Opening reception: Friday, June 24, 6-9pm
Exhibition dates: June 24 - July 14, 2016
Monday – Friday: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Contemporary glassmaking is an inherently dislocated practice. To work with glass is to associate oneself with a tradition that is no longer a relevant part of culture. In so doing, practitioners voluntarily subject themselves to a sense of alienation. Artists navigate the displacement of their craft in contemporary practice with processes that embrace unorthodox methodologies. The resulting work employs mechanisms of reconfiguration, disembodiment, and subversive misappropriation. Tradition and reverence for a material is balanced by approaches that are hybrid, other, and preternatural. These mutations function as microcosms of the discontinuity of our social fabric—oscillating between the familiar and alien.

February 7 – March 8, 2014
Opening Reception: February 7, 2014, 7:00–9:00 PM
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 12:00–6:00 PM

Carrie Hott, Dario Robleto, Laura Steenberge, Hillary Wiedemann, Jeremiah Barber with Ingrid Rojas Contreras

Organized by Southern Exposure’s Curatorial Committee

The artists in White Hot Lamp Black investigate the distant edges of our perception: shadows, bright light, dark space and deep holes. Using varied research-based practices, their work reimagines ways to visualize the unseeable or comprehend the fugitive. Like weekend scientists, their lines of inquiry organically develop according to the forking paths of divergent theories and individual associations with their subject matter.

Opening Reception: October 28th 7-10pm
Exhibition runs October 28 - December 3, 2011

As an artist-run exhibition space in a private residence, Statler Waldorf Gallery is an apartment that takes on a different reason and a different life at an opening than it might on most other nights. Responding to this shifting nature, five artists from San Francisco present work that also acts more generally on the idea of changing the character of a space by thinking it so. Strategies of display, illusion, and concealment extend the experience of change beyond singular contemplation.
