"Future Shock Nesting Boxes," by Stephanie Syjuco, is included in the ZER01 Wunderkammern exhibition at the San Jose Airport.
“Within the new terminal [at the San Jose Airport] the San José Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program (OCA) is managing a changing art and technology public art program to commission artwork that will reflect the character of the Silicon Valley and provide an engaging introduction to the region. As part of this program, ZER01 has been invited to curate two large display cabinets. We are treating these as “Cabinets of Curiosity” or wunderkammern, which will include “small wonders” at the intersection of art, technology and digital culture.”
ArtSlant review of Anthony Discenza’s exhibition at Catharine Clark Gallery, “Everything Will Probably Work Out Ok.”
“Pretty Pictures Will Not Solve Anything: In Eight Parts” by Post Brothers.
“It’s Vito Acconci meets Penthouse Forum. It’s Marquis De Sade meets Benny Hill.
These pairings are culled from a massive list of similar statements organized by Oakland-based artist, Anthony Discenza. Affixed to a wall in vinyl, the list, entitled Sometimes a Great Notion (Part 1) (all works 2009), is a keystone work in Discenza’s Everything Will Probably Work Out OK, the artist’s second solo show at San Francisco’s Catharine Clark Gallery.”

Since 1993, the project has taken place in many different locations, ranging from private homes to specialized public book collections...Taken as a whole, the clusters from each sorting aim to examine that particular library's focus, idiosyncrasies, and inconsistencies — a cross-section of that library's holdings.”

Influencing everything from science to art to politics and religion, the condom, which has remained at the epicenter of debate since its inception, rose from its humble beginnings to become a barometer of morality and a savior in the fight against HIV/AIDS.”

Hate removed: White supremacist books transformed into art exhibit with positive messages
By JOE NICKELL of the Missoulian | Posted: Sunday, January 3, 2010
“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you 4,000 books full of racist aspersion, make art.
That’s the simple logic behind “Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate,” one of the most ambitious, diverse – and unlikely – art projects in the modern history of Montana. A joint project of the Holter Museum of Art in Helena and the Montana Human Rights Network, the widely traveled exhibit arrives in Missoula this week – the closest it has yet come to where it all began, in a storage locker near Superior.”

ARTFORUM: Critics' Pick
BEN MALTZ GALLERY AT THE OTIS COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
9045 Lincoln Boulevard
October 3–December 12
"Travis Somerville’s work addresses the tangled knot of issues surrounding the history of race in America. Using such loaded images as a noose, hooded clansmen, and the Confederate flag in a self-consciously liberal way is laced with difficulties, yet Somerville takes such challenges on with gusto in a new exhibition, “Dedicated to the Proposition.” Conceptualized as a contemporary response to Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Gettysburg Address, the exhibition is fraught with aggressive images, including a sculpture of Lincoln’s head on a ball and chain, and assorted representations of people in blackface."
