Prospettiva Financial and Spare Change Artist Space
are proud to host:  

CURRENCY
An exhibition by the founders of
ONE + ONE + TWO.

According to an article published in the SF Gate last December, the Bay Area is hemorrhaging artist. With skyrocketing housing, studio rent, and exorbitant costs of living, there's no question as to why. But some have seen opportunity through the hardship, ONE + ONE + TWO, a San Francisco based artist collective has focused on creatively mobilizing alternate forms of currency to allow artist in the Bay Area to thrive. Through pooling resources, creative problem solving and simple acts of generosity, these four recent graduates of CCA's MFA program in Studio Practice have successfully connected more than 100 artist from the Bay Area and beyond with the resources they need:  workspace, exhibition opportunities, and dynamic conversation around newly created visual artwork. Since January 2017, the collective has hosted public programming in their collaborative studio space in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco.

 

The current exhibition at Spare Change Artist Space features meditations on the meaning of currency from ONE + ONE + TWO:  Benjamin Cirgin, Jennifer Shada, Garth Fry and Kathryn Ian.

Opening Reception:  Thursday, May 31st, 2018, 
6–9pm

Performance / Crit / Artist Talk:  Wednesday, July 18th, 2018, 6–9pm 

Closing Reception: Thursday, August 30th, 2018,

Lux Interna Live at San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art

At San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art on Friday, March 2nd, Kathryn Ian's experimental musical project, Lux Interna, performed a three-part multimedia narrative in film + music entitled mercy entered his body as night. The narrative explored the intersections between resonance and revelation, vulnerability and vision. Situated against the backdrop of America’s own psychogeographical “dark night of the soul,” Lux Interna invited the audience to take part in a cathartic journey. 

 

The performance included Joshua Levi Ian (guitar, banjo, voice); Kathryn Ian (autoharp, hand percussion, voice); Adam Collins-Torruella (drums, percussion); and Tim Gotch (electric bass, synth).

FRIENDS FUNDING .jpg

WITH YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT WE CAN CONTINUE ARTS PROGRAMING INTO 2018

Over the course of this year, we have hosted over 100 artists and art enthusiasts and given over $6000 to artists from the Bay Area and beyond in stipends, studio space, and exhibitions. The four of us have given countless hours and tons of energy to this endeavor, and now, we need your help.

In 2018, we will host one more + One Resident Artist, and we will continue to host the One + Two Critique Group on a bi-monthly basis throughout 2018. In order to make this happen, we need to raise $2000; $1000 to support the January + One Resident Artist, and $1000 to support the One + Two Critique group in 2018. Anything we raise beyond that $2000 will support additional programming.
