Information from day of event:
The New Race
White Walls is pleased to present The New Race, new works by D Young V. The show expands on the predominately black and white style D Young V is known for, presenting all full-color images, finished with more detailed compositions than any work the artist has previously shown. A deeper foray into 3-d works allows the artist to further the ideas of his complex narrative. A variety of re-appropriated objects will be made to appear as though they have been taken out of D Young V’s vision of a post-apocalyptic world. Automatic rifles, helmets, ammo boxes, a fully functional flame thrower and a collaborative automobile with Eddie Colla, will all function as a gallery sized installation, involving a mural that will encompass every wall and much of the floor in the gallery. The New Race is heavy on collaboration, using the styles of distinctly known artists, including John Felix Arnold III, ROTD, Eddie Colla, Hugh Leeman, Ivan Grianti, and FilthGrime, to contribute to D Young V’s narrative in unique ways.
Gallery Three is pleased to present “Security,” a solo exhibition and performance piece by artist, curator, and 11 year museum professional, Adam Rozan. The opening reception will be Saturday, January 12th, from 7-11pm, and is free and open to the public for viewing through February 2nd, 2013.
Security is the end result of a three year investigation into the effects that security personnel and practices have in our lives and world. First conceived of in 2010, during a visit to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art where Rozan became curious about the notable differences of visitors’ behavior while in the presence of guards, Security has since become a larger exploration into the response dictated by both enforced, and merely implied, policies of public spaces that require security precautions.
Shooting Gallery is pleased to present the lastWinter Group Show to be held in the current gallery at 839 Larkin, before our big move to a newly renovated building. Helping us go out with a bang will be a great lineup of many of our beloved artists, including Ferris Plock, Casey Gray, APEX, Michael Page, Aaron Nagel, John Felix Arnold III, Hugh Leeman, Jet Martinez, C215, Ernesto Yerena, Morgan Slade, Spencer Keeton Cunningham, Adam Rozan, Lauren Napolitano and Bryan Schnelle. All of whom have shared a part in shaping the space into what it is today. The growth and success of the Shooting Gallery is a testament to the talent we’ve been honored to work alongside and the support that the incredible arts community of San Francisco has provided. Join us for the opening reception Saturday, January 12th, from 7-11pm. The exhibit will be open to the public for viewing through February 2nd, 2013.
