VCA will be hosting a panel talk between the Sacramento and Sydney artists involved in our current exhibition, "Translations!" Come to Verge on June 6th, 7pm, as we Skype with Australia and get some insight on the project from both sides. The talk will be moderated by Greg Shapley from Verge Gallery in Sydney, and Liv Moe of Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento.
About the exhibition:
The internet has supposedly flattened time, communication, and space to the point where place no longer matters. Idiosyncrasies, errors, foibles, coincidences, misinterpretations, synchronicities and surprises vanish as we all view the same websites, communicate on the same social media platform, and catch the same viral videos. "Translations," a bold post-digital statement substitutes the myth of the omnipotent datasphere (where it seems everything happens) with two distinct non-virtual locations: two unrelated - except by name - Verge Galleries. Separated by oceans, this project asks seven artists in each location to write instructions for the other ten artists to manifest. Cyberspace will serve as a conduit for these ideas, but to what extent can words and sketches survive the trip intact? What cultural conversions will take place at either end as recipient artists put their own spin on what confronts them?
It's back! The Sacramento French Film Festival's annual Serge party is happening Saturday!
We are hosting a party for Serge Gainsbourg's Birthday! He would be 84 this year.
Join us for our 4th annual celebration of French Icon Serge Gainsbourg. Singer-songwriter, director, actor, photographer, provocateur, iconoclast, and much more, Gainsbourg was a major figure in the 1960's, 1970's, and 1980's pop-culture, all through a fog of Gitanes and alcohol... He is still today considered as one of the world's most influential popular musicians. Come and celebrate the spirit of "Gainsbarre" with us!
