Song Dong's large–scale installation comprised of items that his mother and grandmother collected over a period of five decades. It follows the Chinese concept of wu jin qi yong or "waste not," as a prerequisite for survival.
With the use of delicate materials, Lauren DiCioccio creates soft sculptures of objects disappearing from the everyday, for better or worse. Replicas of newspapers, currency, and plastic bags and bottles are formed out of dainty fabrics tediously hand–embroidered with thread.
Jennie C. Jones' practice resides at the intersection of art history, music history and African-American history, layering the formal language of modern art—abstraction and minimalism—over the conceptual and technical strategies of avant-garde jazz.
Inspired by artist Song Dong’s investigations of family, consumerism, and the small meditative moments that punctuate an ordinary life, Daily Lives is a group exhibition borne out of a collaboration between YBCA and the Chinese Cultural Center.

2011 SFJAZZ Spring Season — Marcus Roberts Trio
Mar 17, 2011 12:00am
Tickets available at sfjazz.org »
The history of jazz piano resides in the fingers of pianist Marcus Roberts. From early 20th century rags and the two-fisted stride of Depression-era Harlem rent parties to the cascading runs of bebop, Roberts has devised an approach that encompasses about every development in the mainstream jazz tradition. He leads one of the most electrifying and erudite trios in jazz, with bassist Roland Guerin and drummer Jason Marsalis.
Winner of the Sundance World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Prize, Enemies of the People follows the project of Thet Sambath, whose parents were among the approximately two million people who perished under the Khmer Rouge regime in the late 1970s.
