BOXBLUR / Catharine Clark Gallery
For the second year, the gallery announces an important partnership with Dance Film SF that continues to enable BOXBLUR to be fiscally sponsored.
In 2016, Catharine Clark founded BOXBLUR, an initiative to bring visual and performing art into dialogue within the non-proscenium-based space of the gallery. In 2016, Margaret Jenkins Dance Company was commissioned to respond to Kambui Olujimi's sculptural stages. In 2017, the EOS Ensemble was commissioned to perform Jeremy Turner's score for Chris Doyle's video; in 2018, Josephine Taylor and Kaveh Rastegar engaged in a multi-media collaboration with drawing, video, and music; and for 2019's commission "How to Fall in Love in a Brothel," artists Sunhui Chang, Ellen Sebastian Chang, and Maya Gurantz built a traditional Korean screened room that served as the setting for live performance.
2020's commission features performances by Rufus Wainwright, Monique Jenkinson/Fauxnique, and Helen Shumaker in response to Timothy Cummings's solo exhibition, “Muse.”
