hot love–cold facts
August 17–October 12, 2019
Andrea Borsuk, Frédéric Doazan, Matt Gonzalez, Mildred Howard, Victoria May, Catie O’Leary, Ward Schumaker, Katherine Sherwood and Vanessa Woods
Curated by Jack Fischer
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 17, 6pm–8pm
Gallerist Jack Fischer guest curates an exhibition exploring collage as a form where narrative and abstraction meet and dissolve into one another. Set up as a dialogue between two seemingly distinct camps — the hot, romantic and erotic on one hand, and the cool, austere and form-obsessed on the other — boundaries blur as the show progresses through works both evocative and formal. Pieces span a wide range of media, including cut paper, antique engravings, tapestry, sculpture and video.
Please note: Parents and guardians should preview the exhibition before accompanying minors. Image: Vanessa Woods, Form Study No. 3, 2019
Lobby Project: Check It Out
August 17–October 12, 2019
Round Table [Collaboration]
Check It Out is a round-robin collaborative collage project, open to all. The process is ‘library style,’ with participants borrowing works-in-progress and independently contributing to that progress. The borrowed work is then returned and made available for the next collaborator.
Presented as part of “Lobby Projects,” an initiative to showcase installation-based works by artist-members of the Berkeley Art Center.

Curated by Related Tactics
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 26, 6pm–8pm
For this participatory exhibition, Related Tactics presents mobile stations that gather and deploy a collection of artist-made interventions, tools, and strategies that can be used by audiences to interrupt systems of marginalization, exploitation and erasure, large and small. The assembled materials range from the poetic to prompts for guerrilla actions, from takeaway print materials to the building blocks for temporary gatherings. All are linked through their interest in encouraging individual agency in challenging everyday moments where communities of color are often caught off guard or isolated from allies. The hope is to provide a toolkit that can be carried and utilized beyond the exhibition.
