Dara investigates memory and cultural residue by creating lucid and imagined narratives through photography, fiber, sound and installation. She addresses the haunted transmission of collective memory and then confronts the material remains. That which appears in the past is very much a contemporary presence. An engagement with what is unseen or what has been left behind can challenge our fixed notions of past and present.

Iconofauxbia playfully explores Pop culture within a pseudo-religious framework, interpreting and manipulating its sound and imagery as evangelical elements. Playing with the idea of memorabilia, this multimedia exhibition functions as a mash-up, re-fabricating notable and sometimes cultish Pop imagery, synthesizing it into a new, yet strangely familiar, form, and resurrecting it in a new light. This is Spencer Holloway’s (Spencer Product) debut solo exhibition in the MFA program at the San Francisco Art Institute.

In Exposed, three artists look at two states: the first being that which is covered, hidden, or private, and the other, that which is revealed, exposed, or public.

Birthdays can either mark a joyous anniversary, a rite of passage, an asinine gathering, or a cruel reminder of another year passed. "Crappy Birthday"  is a show that merges these viewpoints while ruminating upon birthdays as ceremony and as celebration.
