Four SF Galleries to Visit This WeekAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Michael Crouser: Los Toros/Mountain Ranch, at Corden Potts Gallery
“From the very beginning of my exposure to the bullfight I knew that I was seeing something … unlike anything I had ever seen,” says photographer Michael Crouser. “It was heavy, serious, sad, spectacular, historic, cultural, provocative, and deep.” This exhibition brings together many of Crouser’s award-winning shots of the peculiar, mesmerizing bullfighting spectacle, along with material from his ongoing project, Mountain Ranch, a photographic study of the rapidly disappearing world of traditional cattle ranching.
Los Toros/Mountain Ranch runs from April 18 through May 25 at Corden Potts Gallery, 49 Geary Street. Opening Reception: Thursday, May 2 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Brooklyn duo Skewville bring their “urban playground” aesthetic to White Walls, Corden Potts shows Michael Crouser’s famed bullfighting series, and two other galleries reach milestones worth celebrating. Stop in.
Skewville: Amusement, at White Walls Gallery
“Urban Playground” nicely describes the style of Brooklyn-based duo Skewville, who have filled White Walls Gallery with city signifiers – appropriated commercial graphics, mock traffic signage, and droves of rectangular characters that seem to have assumed the shape of apartment facades. In Amusement they take an especially carnivalesque turn, referencing pop culture entertainment items from their youth and, in a large central installation, reconstructing a merry-go-round out of Apollo bikes.
Amusement runs through May 4 at White Walls Gallery, 886 Geary Street
