The sixth edition of YBCA's signature triennial exhibition, Bay Area Now, a roundup of exemplary talent across an array of disciplines, continues with a visual arts exhibition showcasing 18 artists and artist collectives. Included is photography by Tammy Rae Carland and Sean McFarland; paintings by David Huffman and Robert Minervini; video works by Ranu Mukherjee and Richard T. Walker; sculptures by Mauricio Ancalmo, Suzanne Husky, Allison Smith, and Weston Teruya; conceptual work by Amy Balkin and Tony Labat; installations by Chris Fraser, Brion Nuda Rosch, Chris Sollars, and Rio Babe International; and textiles by Ben Venom.
Cerf and Green present three short "live documentaries" which combine film, live narration, and sound mixing. In the local premiere of The Voyager Spacecraft, Green and Cerf use the materials of the “Golden Record,” a collection of photographs, natural sounds, and music compiled by astronomer Carl Sagan for a time capsule inside the unmanned interstellar Voyager Spacecraft. They will also present ‘remixed’ versions of two earlier works: The World’s Largest Shopping Mall and The Universal Language.
