I've been invited to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts a couple times for some random events, but I've never had a chance to check it out. With my new job located downtown (and a couple blocks away from the YBCA), I finally got to check it out last night.
Such a cool space tucked away close to the busyness of downtown. Surprisingly the YBCA wasn't crowded, which I expected it to be on a "free museum" day. *Hollerrrr for the first Tuesday of every month*... Heeyyyyyyy. I've always passed this area but never been inside, which is weird considering is right next to the Metreon movie theaters. Btw, can I just say how excited I am for there to be a Target underneath the Metreon. I'm sorry, but San Francisco is over due for one.
The current exhibit going on right now is The Matter Within: New Contemporary Art Of India. It's actually a pretty small exhibit with only 2 galleries. But the art was amazing with sculptures, installations, photography, and films. Something to check out and be inspired if you have any free time.
I see London, I see France... I see crystalized monuments on top of the tortoise shell.
My favorite photograph. Oooo girl, lemme help you out and braid that hair of yours. Kidding.
Stab. Wound. Actually, no these 2 pieces didn't go together. Just happened by itself while I was uploading the pictures.
You don't really think of contemporary art and India together, so it was neat seeing the exhibit of works from Indian artist living in and out of the country. You have till the end of the month to check out The Matter Within: New Contemporary Art Of India. It ends this month on January 29th, so hurry!
