Friday Nights at the de Young | The Figure

August 9, 2013 -
5:00pm8:45pm

Tonight we celebrate the figure through music and art-making!

Friday Nights at the de Young are after-hours art “happenings” that include a mix of live music, dance and theater performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, hands-on art activities, and exhibition tours. Local artists conduct drop-in workshops, debut new commissions, display their art in the Kimball Education Gallery, and take part in conversations about the creative process. The café offers a delicious Friday Nights prix-fixe menu and specialty cocktails, and the observation tower is open until 8 pm. Artist Fellows, Artists-in-Residence, curators, scholars, and arts educators all play an active role in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience for all.

The Art of Painting Music: Allegro (ma non troppo)

Peggy Gyulai's work explores the connections between music and the expressive possibilities of paint on canvas. She approaches music as a subject, object, and inspiration, and, like Richard Diebenkorn, invokes the dynamic tension between abstraction and representation in order to create substance from the most ephemeral phenomena.

The Goat Family began as a group of filmmaker friends who gathered weekly to play original and traditional music on homemade instruments. Over the years it has grown into an energetic rhythm machine that combines avant-garde film projections with rump-shaking sing-alongs. On August 2 see the Goat Family at the de Young, featuring Rock Ross, Dan Janos, Thad Povey, Chris Santeramo, and Cecil B. Feeder, and filmmaker Alfonso Alvarez projecting his 16mm and digital films.

The evening is hosted by Ben Burke.

Also in Wilsey Court, Atlas Obscura presents a look at the wondrous world of urban exploration in San Francisco. View a recent work by the Urbanauts, Sean Orlando and Rebar's Matthew Passmore, to learn more about their investigations over the past year.
