Pablo Guardiola, from “Maintenance Yard,” on view at Romer Young Gallery, San Francisco (9/5 to 10/11, 2014).

Through photographic and sculptural metaphors, Guardiola gives new meaning to objects, and weaves new stories. “Maintenance Yard” explores the ‘markers of geography through historical figures Francis Drake and George Dewey, plotting story lines from the Bay Area to the Caribbean and back, emblematic of Guardiola’s own personal trajectory’ (Hotchkiss). The works are heavily anchored in the idea of History as equation, where History is approached as a multiple choice narrative; inevitably the plot of the story is about its process of creation and the endless outcomes and permutations that can arise.

Art in the City. Texas. 1974

Stephen Shore, “West Ninth Avenue, Amarillo, Texas,” October 2, 1974, from the series “American Surfaces,” chromogenic print. Image courtesy the artist and 303 Gallery, New York. Last day to see it in the exhibition “Aperture Remix,” (05/24 - 9/26, 2014) at Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego.

In the 1970s, Shore set the standard for large-format color photography of the vernacular landscape, producing coolly detailed photographs that transformed the environment into evocative tableaus. The “American Surfaces” series consists of snapshots photographed on the road to Amarillo, Texas between 1972–1973.

Gerard & Kelly, “Kiss Solo,” 2012
Four-channel video and sound. 45:00 min.
On view at Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, as a part of Made in LA exhibition.

Through performance, photography, choreography, video, and writing, Gerard & Kelly upend the discipline of dance and its relation to the visual arts while remaining resolutely within its boundaries. By taking cues from conceptualist dance of the 1960s and 1970s, strategies of appropriation and institutional critique of the 1980s and 1990s, and more recent developments in queer theory, Gerard & Kelly question traditional assumptions of gender and sexuality.

Miguel Libarnes, “Mascara,” 2012, still from video performance, 3 mins. 32 secs., courtesy the artist and UCR Artblock.

In the era of the digital, how might we have to queer what we think is queer? In its online and offline versions, the exhibition “Queer Sites and Sounds” proposes that we understand queerness both as an embodied identificatory practice and as a way of relating to digital stories, forms, and literacies.

An Xiao Mina, Morse Code Tweets, 2009. at the Brooklyn Museum.

Why Do We Tweet?
In January 2009, the Brooklyn Museum launched 1stfans, the first social media-driven museum membership. Through tweeting Morse code, An Xiao Mina proposed using the feed to tweet in Morse code. Each tweet appeared solely in dots and dashes, but she provided an online translator which allowed readers to simply copy and paste the code to get a response in the Roman alphabet.  Rather than important issues, she communicated daily minutiae, such as “Brushing my teeth” and “Tired. Need coffee.” 

Tonight, on PMx Twitter (6-8pm), we’ll be talking to An Xiao Mina about her multi-faceted practice as an artist, writer and technologist. We’ll discuss some of her artistic project as well as her work at The Civic Beat, an online magazine about how people are using creativity and technology for social and political change.
