THE POSSIBLE by Terri Loewenthal

it's high time i share some news about the possibleat berkeley art museum.

what the new york times calls a departure from the obvious, this exhibition crafted by guest curator david wilson and director lawrence rinder is an experiment that re-conceives the museum as a site for creative convergence. the gallery spaces have been transformed into work spaces: a ceramics studio, dye lab, print shop and recording studio. a diverse range of guest artists are using the museum and these studios to create new work, collaborating and experimenting in a public forum. i'm happy to be one of them.

above is a platform that kori girard designed to receive works created during the four-month long exhibition. i loved it most early on, in its empty state, reeking of potential. this image sums up the spirit of the exhibition quite nicely, but the instagram feed does a pretty good job too.

PASSAGER by Terri Loewenthal

this image was commissioned by SFMOMA to document the first of david wilson's 2012 SECA project arrivals, a series of six self-guided journeys to outdoor sites throughout san francisco.

the 16-foot drawing nestled in the presidio depicts frog woman rock, the spectacle that marks the beginning of the end of the journey to our handmade house.

here it is in the film flesh.

 

and here are a few favorite vignettes of the opening ceremony that took place on september 14, 2013 (plenty more here).

the drawing will remain in the presidio until november 22, 2013. it's an amazing thing to stumble upon, and an even more amazing destination. 

i am thrilled to share what happened when sam, felix and i embarked on the journey.
