“Ancient Objects, Still Lives”
Altman Siegel Gallery
49 Geary Street, San Francisco, CA 94108
Reception: June 5, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
June 5 – August 2, 2014
Thursday, June 5, Altman Siegel Gallery hosts a public reception for their new exhibition of work by Sara VanDerBeek, “Ancient Objects, Still Lives.” VanDerBeek presents a selection of photographs and sculptural objects that feature Pre-Colombian artifacts alongside depictions of relative contemporary subjects. The combination of forms and imagery, and the similarity of their aesthetics, results in a kind of equalizing suspension from history for both groups of materials; in this space the historical artifact and the contemporary counterpart meet, casting light upon each other.
The reception will take place June 5, 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
VanDerBeek presents a number of photographic prints, as well as a number of sculptural objects and spatial interventions throughout the gallery.
The exhibition will remain on view through August 2.
