January 21 - March 11, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 21st, 6-9pm
The exhibition, titled The Collectivists, marks a moment in time in which a vast number of artists are joining together to take greater control of their means of production and presentation. By prioritizing the group over the individual, self promotion and publicity function as collective forms of power. This current surge of standout artist-run spaces has become a democratic movement; and en masse, artist collectives are challenging the established hierarchy of how the gallery system and commerce function in the art world. The influence of the group, uplifts the individuals involved and ultimately offers new pathways for the success of both.

Provisional HAVEN, Curated by Anna Novakov
REFUSALON, San Francisco, CA
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 19th
Provisional Haven brings together eight international artists whose work touches upon the pleasure garden as a physical, psychosocial and temporary space. Throughout history, the pleasure garden has morphed and taken on the form of a masquerade, tea garden, menagerie, amusement park, playground, carnival or sideshow. It also functions as an imaginary landscape or a public space to play out personal fantasies.
by Anna Novakov
Provisional Haven, contributes to the timely dialogue about technology, the environment and alternative art spaces. Provisional references the current moment and temporary, fleeting sites. Haven suggests that art is a timeless sanctuary and refuge for both artists and viewers. The eight international artists in the exhibition all engage with temporary, momentary spaces and art as a haven for the unbound imagination.
Including new work by Bijan Yashar, Yin-Ju Chen, Sabina Ott, Jennifer Locke, Ana Teresa Fernandez, Felipe Dulzaides, Michelle Wasson and Ron Hutt.
