Beth Fein: When Words Fail. Although largely abstract in nature, Fein's installations and interactive pieces serve to locate us in a social landscape where common ground has seemingly evaporated in duel of opposition. Sachiko Miki: The Visitor. Quizzical and unnerving, sculpture characters and objects by Japanese artist Sachiko Miki communicate worlds of information based on Miki's keen observation of expression and stance.
This double solo exhibition features works by Bay Area-based Beth Fein and Japanese artist Sachiko Miki. While each artist creates work based on social frameworks, both complicate over-simplified readings of their respective works through abstraction while challenging viewers to reconsider the common language of the visual in a time of deep political division.
