This weekend we're excited to check out two spaces we have yet to visit: The Galallery and Smash Gallery. Both spaces will be featuring exciting works which take a hard look at social identity, definitely worth checking out.
Located on Capp Street between 16th and 17th Street, The Galallery is an independent space dedicated to supporting emerging artists. Tomorrow night's group show "FOLLOW FOR UNFOLLOW" will feature pieces from 9 artists working mostly in video but also textiles and photography. The show has a sparked influence in voyeurism, so you can probably guess why we took an interest to it.
Smash Gallery, located on Golden Gate Ave & Leavenworth St, will be showing "Shadows of the Tenderloin", a solo show featuring works by Iranian born San Francisco-based artist, Dariush Nehdaran. It's expected this will be a showing of 20 or so traditional black and white prints that take a look at the homelessness in the Tenderloin district. Although a widely covered topic, we think it will be very interesting to see beautifully presented works in a fine art gallery, all the while the very streets the photos were taken are right outside the door.
