    Chandran Gallery: Witch-Wife - Swoon & Monica Canilao

    Comment by AB: Shared sentiments, complementary styles, oodles of talent and exemplary work ethic converge for this superb installation that saturates the gallery well beyond art and on into the realm of experience. Required viewing... and the best show I've seen in a while.

    SF Camerawork in collaboration with the Chinese Culture Center: RETRIEVED - Kurt Tong, Daniel Traub, Beijing Silvermine/Thomas Sauvin

    Comment by AB: Three distinct perspectives on life in China. Beijing Silvermine/Thomas Sauvin rescues and revives discarded negatives; Daniel Traub shows "instant portraits" of international traders, mainly African, taken by two itinerant photographers in Gaungzhou; Kurt Tong shows a selection of family photographs in combination with his own. Stop on by.
