Opening Reception Sunday, June 25 ​Members Preview: 1 – 2 PM Public Reception: 2 – 4 PM Detritus is an exhibition exploring the leftover, the scraps, the byproducts of the art-making process that artists do not discard for a number of compelling reasons. What is the significance of a wall marked by an accumulation of paint and fingerprints spanning a lifetime of studio work? What does a jar full of eraser shavings reveal about the studio practice of an artist who draws? Taking inspiration from the field of forensics, this exhibition examines the detritus from a multitude of studio practices of Bay Area artists in hopes of shifting the focus from art as commodity, to the core value of art making. Detritus is guest curated by Kevin B. Chen, Lisa Ellswoth, and Lordy Rodriguez.
