Johanna Poethig’s installation and curatorial project Songs for Women Living With War is featured in Art Practical’s special issue “Art Can’t Do Anything If We Don’t.” The article titled Teaching and Talking about Art and Performance in Unprecedented Times is written by Thea Quiray Tagle and is, in the writer’s words “a mini manifesto about the kinds of art I think matters especially in these times.”
Two Mercury 20 artists, Charlie Milgrim and Fernando Reyes have been chosen to exhibit at San Francisco’s contemporary art fair for independent artists, the StARTup Art Fair. Charlie will be showing a series of work based on photographic explorations at the defunct Bethlehem Steel Factory in Pennsylvania. Fernando will be showing abstract collages inspired by Matisse’s “Cut Outs”.
The fair will be held at the Hotel DelSol, 3100 Webster Street in the Marina district of San Francisco from April 28-30, 2017. For more info: http://sf.startupartfair.com/artists/
