Jack Fischer Gallery: Ken Morisawa - fishman / waterfall.
Comment by AB: Dramatic active figural abstractions by photographer Ken Morisawa. The modus? He's underwater looking up and photographing swimmers as they pass over him. It's precisely that simple and no more complicated.

Guerrero Gallery: Joey Piziali. Michael Eudy. Lester Monzon. Gustavo Ramos Rivera.
Comment by AB: Four distinct perspectives on abstraction-- diverging on theoretical, stylistic, and even intergenerational grounds. Good art; stop on by.

The Performance Art Institute: Micromanagement - An Evening of Sixteen Experimental Performance Artists.
Artists: Mabel Negrete and Timothy E Robertson II), Jordan Essoe, Peter Foucault, Jennifer Gwirtz, Barbara Kristoff, Anya Liftig, Cheryl Meeker and Dan Spencer, Ellen Mueller, Naomi Sex, Ann Marie Stoehr, Merav Tzur, Kathryn Williamson, Gordon Winiemko, Katherine Worel.
Comment by AB: Sean Fletcher and Isabel Reichert organize an evening of performances around micromanagement-- "close observation and control over someone else's work, frequently accompanied by an acute focus on minor details, to the point where it often seems more a matter of control than the successful realization of a project."
Shoe check at The Performance Art Institute.
I missed Jordan Essoe's performance, but not Jordan Essoe.
Some sort of human stereo system, I think.

Gallery Heist: Ian Shults - The Social Contract.
Review by Clare Coppel: Large paintings by Ian Shults are mostly black and white with splashes of color-- people dancing, partying and in sexual situations. The paintings are like slightly out-of-focus memories with sort of romantic yet slightly sleazy (not like it's a bad thing) feeling.

Comment by AB: Exceptionally dense exhibit of cutting-edge creatibles by a bevy of youthful Bay Area practitioners. Additionally exceptionally dense is the attendance at tonight's event, and so humid that my camera lens fogs up.
