Opening Day - Out to Lunch
Come one, come all!
Mauve? Office of Exhibition celebrates its 3rd anniversary with “Out To Lunch,” a month-long art exhibition at Wire + Nail in San Francisco.
Mauve? Office of Exhibition, an unconventional art gallery that occupies two office cubicles in downtown Berkeley, is celebrating its birthday by transplanting its cubicle sensibility to the Wire+Nail Gallery on 3150 18th Street (at Treat). Mauve? founders Sabina Nieto and Tarak Shah are curating a 4-week retrospective March 17th to April 15th.
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 24th, from 7 to 9pm.
Gallery Hours: Saturdays, from 1 - 3 pm, and available by appointment.
Featuring local artists who have shown at Mauve? in the past year, working in a variety of media including photography, installation, performance, beaded embroidery, drawing, writing, screen prints, and digital prints, the show looks to suggest the playful elements of the office work day: daydreams, small escapes, vacations, vices, snacks, reappropriation of office supplies.
Participating artists include: Neil Berrett, Mic D’Bernardo, Katie Hoffman, Maggie Lawson, Alexis Lopez, Jackie Hancock, Michael Ifland, Bridget May, Matt McKenzie, Natalia Melikova, Jenny Odell, Alissa Polan, Eduardo Valadez, Chelsea Ryoko Wong, Amber Jean Young, and Daniel Yovino.
In commemoration of this birthday, and in line with the production of an annual printed good, this year Chelsea Ryoko Wong has designed with Colpa Press printing (Luca Antonucci and Carissa Potter), a limited number of posters and shirts. Per Mauve?'s mission, wares are sold at-cost and 100% of sales from artwork goes to the artist.
