Wednesday, July 12th



----/ Event Description /-----------------------------------------------

Triple Base Gallery
July 12 - July 30, 2006
Opening Reception: Wednesday, July 12, 7 - 10 pm
Special live performance at 8pm:  Usun  w/ Mark Borthwick, Hisham  
Bharoocha (ex-Black Dice) and David Aron.

Cosmic Satellites celebrates the intimate, handmade, the beloved  
souvenir and the special gift. Guest curator and art director Betty  
Nguyen will set up a temporary shop at the Triple Base gallery  
carrying limited edition art works, merchandise, clothes and media by  
an international roster of artists - many of whom are featured in  
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts' simultaneous exhibition Cosmic Wonder.

Satellite artists include Cory Arcangel, Ara Peterson, John Dwyer,  
Nieves Books and Zines, Tagbanger and Textfield, Hanna Fushihara  
Aron, David Aron, Hisham Bharoocha, Mark Borthwick, Feathers, Sam  
Gordon, Sabrina Gschwandtner (KnitKnit), Yukinori Maeda, Paperrad,  
Ports Bishop and many more.

In both the Cosmic Wonder exhibition and satellite show, Nguyen  
strings together a community of artists from New York, Los Angeles,  
Japan, and San Francisco that work between aesthetics of  
transcendental, digitally tight and homespun. Cosmic Satellites is a  
contemporary cube of intricate jewelry, silk-screened and digital  
posters, couture clothes, humorously clever tee-shirts, documented  
zines, ephemeral paintings, and recursive videos that highlight the  
varied creative endeavors of these multi-talented artists.
