Wednesdays–Sundays, 1–5 pm, Fridays until 8:45 pm
de Young | Kimball Education Gallery/Artist Studio
Artist Reception: Friday, September 30, 2016, 6–8:30 pm

t.w.five works with a single material–adhesive backed vinyl–to make their large scale work. All shapes are hand-cut into strips from large rolls of solid color vinyl, and then carefully applied to a surface of the work. For their month-long residency, t.w.five will make a large installation using part of the museum’s collection from different periods of art history as inspiration and intermix them with each other to create work made of hand-cut vinyl. Museum visitors will have the opportunity to learn about vinyl as an artistic medium and make their own work using this material.
 
Born and raised in Sweden and Brazil, respectively, t.w.five is an international art duo based in San Francisco. Each artist holds an MFA from San Jose State University and they have had numerous solo exhibitions in the Bay Area and abroad, including The Luggage Store Gallery (San Francisco), Canada College Art Gallery (Palo Alto), and Babel Gallery (Trondheim, Norway). The duo has completed several public art commissions throughout San Francisco and in Silicon Valley, and have been awarded residencies at the Headlands Center for the Arts, Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder in Trondheim, Norway, and Sula Fyr in Sula, Norway.
