On February 19th, Chandran Gallery in San Francisco will be presenting Witch-Wife, a two person show from Swoon (interviewed)  and long time collaborator Monica Canilao. The title of the show refers to a woman who practices witchcraft as well as is a nod to the longstanding artistic relationship between the duo. The two-level space will be transformed into an immersive installation featuring the assemblages of found objects from the Oakland-based Canilao and the wheat paste portraits from the Brooklyn-based Swoon with inspiration for the new work taken from dreams that were […]

The trio of US-based artists traveled to Milan to work together on creating fresh collaborative installations filled with their signature styles and techniques. McNett sent us some photos documenting their progress as they slaved away in Italy as well as some final shots of the fruits of their labor. Check it all out after the jump.

This show celebrates the first two years of the gallery’s existence, so we wish them well and much […]

Jason Jaworski’s DIE JUNGE DIE YOUNG

Jason Jaworski is opening his latest performance/film piece this weekend at San Francisco’s annual Noise Pop festival. Aptly titled DIE JUNGE DIE YOUNG, the film serves as a summation of Jaworski’s year in travels and an expression of his pain at the recent loss of some friends and family. The last time we saw Jaworski perform, he was on stage with David Choe’s (featured), both in their underwear, serving as backup dancers to Die Antwo0rd. Needless to say, with an accompanying installation by Monica Canilao, […]
