    Canessa Gallery: Flashbacks - Unpublished Rock-n-Roll Photography by Chris Brorsen.

    Comment by AB: Chris Brorsen tells me that up until the 80s, people were allowed to take cameras to rock concerts and photograph the bands, so that's precisely what he did.

    San Francisco Arts Commission, 155 Grove Street Gallery: Tahiti Pehrson - Sea of Love.

    Comment by AB: Yet another cut paper spectacular from Tahiti Pehrson, this one being the most ambitious he's created to date, involving myriads of labyrinthine geometric patterns. Worth a visit.
