San Francisco, CA

Please join us for the opening of Water Music, a group exhibition featuring top San Francisco Bay Area artists with works of art in various media inspired by the element and mystery of water: the sensual and emotional attraction we have to water; visual representations informed by leitmotifs from classic antiquity to contemporary abstractions; and works of art incorporating scientific inquiries into an element essential to life itself. Victoria Mara Heilweil and Phil Spitler are this exhibition’s local makers, presenting “Luminous Waveforms”, illuminated seating made up of parametrically designed, sculpted wooden benches. ​​​​​​​San Francisco’s RAWdance will perform throughout the evening, ending the company’s six-month residency at DZINE.

Exhibiting artists in Water Music include: Sue Cretarolo, Diane DallasKidd, Paule Dubois Dupuis, Austin Forbord, Laura Hapka, Victoria Mara Heilweil, Howard Hersh, Gina Jacupke, Sasinun Kladpetch, Yoko Kubrick, Katy Kuhn, Emily Lazarre, Heidi McDowell, Adia Millett, Lian Ng, Jenny Phillips, Carrie Ann Plank, Silvia Poloto, Lucky Rapp, Georgina Reskala, Christopher Stark and Nikki Vismara. (Linked names are Shipyard artists)

The opening night party celebrating Water Music is on May 3, 2019 from 6-9pm at DZINE Gallery and is free and open to the public. Prosecco and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Cavallerizza Irreale
Turin, Italy

Art Works for Change is pleased to present a collaborative, site-specific installation created by the participating artists Randy Jayne Rosenberg, Gabriela Morawetz, Carrie Ann Plank and Tram Davies.
“Spesso la gente dichiara di ricordare una vita passata. Io dichiaro di ricordare una diversa, diversissima vita presente.”
“Often people claim to remember past lives. I claim to remember a different, very different present life.” – Philip K. Dick

The Cavallerizza Irreale inaugurates in 2019 the fourth edition of HERE , an interdisciplinary and multimedia artistic project aimed at the realization of an artistic production involving visual artists, theater companies, musical groups, ephemeral workers, set designers, curators, anthropologists and researchers from more areas and from different parts of the world.

Born in 2016 as an experimental laboratory of visual arts, this year HERE proposes a site of artistic and anthropological research, focused on experiential and relational practice, inspired by temporary cities.

Cavallerizza Irreale, today more than ever, is able to shake conventional art forms and social hierarchies; it affirms itself as an instrument of renewal of the artistic scene; asks the company new questions; creates dialogues between the city and the artist.

The aim of this edition of HERE is to build a series of temporary cities where experiences, relationships and feelings hidden under the guise of a city come to life. That is, to create a new organ for new visions of possible futures, extreme solutions to the epochal challenges to which we are called to respond . Starting from the memory of the places, and from the search for buried traces, the artists will build together a temporary city able to involve the spectators. Living in a city implies a continuous confrontation with its physical and social changes . The city lived with the body, consumed every day; the imaginary city that forms within us and makes us feel that we are that place.The inhabitants and artistic productions can actively contribute to the metamorphosis of the city . The result will be a collection of works that become an integral part of the space-landscape interaction.
