Frescomania: Bay Area and Beyond

Frescomania puts the ancient art of fresco on center stage. Inspired by the Teotihuacan wall painting exhibit at the de Young, it will bring to mind the memory of frescos the public may have seen in the past. Visitors to the gallery will see interpretations of fragments of famous wall paintings as they would look if the originals were taken from around the world and placed in the museum. Projected images will show the fresco process and an interactive element will give a sense of the nature of the medium.

Urbanauts is a speculative exploration of urban infrastructure and its relationship to the everyday experience of the contemporary city.  Through a series of interwoven conversations, urban expeditions, design charettes and conjectural artworks based at the de Young, Sean Orlando and Rebar will consider the ways urban inhabitants relate (or don't) to the largely unseen mechanical systems, societal constructs, and cultural imperatives that mediate and structure life in the built environment.

Bay Invaders: Non-Native Species are Changing the San Francisco Bay Ecosystem

 

In a replica of her own studio, Tamar Assaf invites visitors to engage in a hands-on activity to experience her creative process of research, preparation, creation and presentation of artwork.

Assaf's artwork is a subtle social and ecological commentary on the environment, raising awareness of human influence on animals in the wild and how entire ecosystems function as a delicate balance of interdependencies.
