Four New SF Art Exhibitions for the Curious Viewer


Christian Marclay’s lesser known photography bent, a full-scale house of cardboard, unpredictable robotic sculptures and a sustained look at The Gathering of the Juggalos are all on the art agenda for this week. Curiosity? It’s most certainly piqued. 

Daniel Cronin, The Gathering of the Juggalos (Artist Talk and Book Signing), at Carte Blanche 

Called “the most controversial music festival in the world,” The Gathering of the Juggalos is indeed, as photographer Daniel Cronin shows, a sight to see. For the unfamiliar, Juggalos are a predominantly midwestern, white trash subculture distinguished by their black-and-white clown makeup and devotion to the “horrorcore” rap group Insane Clown Posse. However, in Cronin’s new book documenting the festival, the daring photographer aims to suggest that there is in fact a current of goodwill and camaraderie beneath all the nastiness. Not convinced? Come to Cronin’s artist talk at Carte Blanche for what is sure to be an unforgettable first-hand account. 

Friday, March 29 from 6 – 9 pm (artist talk at 6:30, book signing 7:30) at Carte Blanche, 973 Valencia Street
