YBCA welcomes Bay Area photographer and installation artist Derick Ion to the Room for Big Ideas. His installation transforms the RBI into a meditative and sensual environment rich in symbology, Jainist iconography, and Subcontinental texture. Complementing and contrasting YBCA's large first floor exhibition, The Matter Within: New Contemporary Art of India, the ephemera and minutiae displayed in Ion's space reflect another contemporary – and timeless – perspective on India.
As a contribution to the Ms. at 40 and the Future of Feminism Symposium, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts has designed a slide show featuring an array of images that appeared in the feminist magazine beginning in 1972.
Gina Osterloh’s new film project, Anonymous Front, is a visual essay on physical blindness and identity, created in collaboration with a vocational massage therapy school for the blind in the Philippines.
Castaneda/reiman investigates the treatment of the outdoors within interior domestic spaces; challenges artistic notions of display, especially as they relate to painting and sculpture; and plays with ideas of simulacra and simulation.
This lecture by Gina Osterloh will focus on her obsession with color fields and connections between abstraction and the real through questions of perception and identity, vision and blindness. She will discuss her visual strategies: mimicry, the copy, camouflage, and collapsing and playing with photographic space—foreground, figure-ground, background. She will also speak about the influence of Jordan Belson, one of the first experimental light and sound projection artists in San Francisco, on her work.

The Gondoliers was a huge hit in its day — the greatest success of Gilbert & Sullivan's joint career along with The Mikado. Greet the two kings, who, because of mistaken identity, have acquired three would-be queens! The sparkling, emerald Adriatic Sea... the sun-dappled, lazy waters of the Grand Canal... singing Gondoliers and Contadine... and the "Cachucha" danced at the Royal Court at Barataria make The Gondoliers a heart-warming Venetian valentine, wrapped in Sullivan's most tuneful music and tied with one of Gilbert's most fanciful libretti.

Antonioni's panoramas of contemporary alienation were decade-defining artistic events, and Red Desert, his first color film, is perhaps his most essential. This look at the spiritual desolation of the technological age continues to keep viewers spellbound. (1964, 117 min, 35mm)
