    Root Division: Living with Endangered Languages in the Information Age. Curated by Hanna Regev.

    Artists: Salma Aratsu, Carlo Abruzzese, Philip Alden Benn, Irene Carvajal, Antonio Cortez, Allison Leigh Holt, Justin Hoover, Phillip Hua, Janet Jones, Igor Josifov, Ali Kaaf, Pantea Karimi w/ Phil Spitler, Daniel Konhauser, Naomie Kremer, Joh Kuzmich, Nolan Love, Mary Corey March, Penny Nii, Tsering Norbu, Viviana Paredes, Rebecca Rose, Tim Roseborough, Maya Smira, Tessie Barrera Scharaga, Sarah Tell, Larry Thomas, Kenneth Wilkes, Michelle Wilson.

    Review by RWM: Very intellectual as usual. Sad we are losing so many languages also. Nice one-stop for a captivating show with much to ponder, remember and protect.

    Comment by AB: "Studies show that fifty percent of the world's 7,000 languages will disappear by the end of the 21st century, and that on average, a language dies or goes extinct every two weeks when its last speaker dies," and this group show is all about that.

    Bash Contemporary: Adrienne Simms, Yosiell Lorenzo, Chris Leib, MJ Lindo - Pop Thrills.

    Review by RWM: Fantastic and dark work. More narrative than pop art and thrilling and suspenseful. Amazing work with a macabre sensibility, but there is also hope, wonder and beauty.

    886 Geary Gallery: Filippo Minelli - Nothing To Say.

    Comment by AB: Italian artist Filippo Minelli interjects puffs of colored smoke into placid California landscapes as he encourages viewers to visualize silence. This is the artist's first solo show in the United States.
