Opening Reception: Body Talk

Gatehouse Gallery

Manners, Basic Edition (study), 2015. Courtesy of the artists.

This exhibition explores how technology is rapidly changing what it means to be human by prompting a re-engagement with the corporeal. Inspired by a number of artists activating relationships between the body and the world at large, Body Talk presents works in performance, sculpture, video, and large-scale multimedia installation by six emerging Bay Area artists and artist collectives: Bonanza (Conrad Guevara, Lindsay Tully, and Lana Williams), Mads Lynnerup, Manners (Sophia Wang and Lisa Rybovich Crallé), Christian Nagler (with Kevin Nagler), Renée Rhodes, and May Wilson. As we become ever more disembodied from daily life through various means of technology, Body Talk aims to locate an expanded awareness of how we might physically engage the world, using our entire bodies—and not just our heads (or our iPhones)—as tools for gaining experience and knowledge.

Free. Members Preview 5-6 PM.
