Embryonic


I have been a Flaming Lips devotee for years, but sort of burnt out there for awhile, so much so that Embryonic kinda passed me by, but this record is good, start to end. Fearless Freaks strike again!

Alexandre Arrechea



Lecture Tonight at SFAI 4:30 PM
Interdisciplinary artist Alexandre Arrechea was born in Cuba, and graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. He was a member of the art collective Los Carpinteros, until he left the group in 2003 to pursue his career as a solo artist. His work often deals with loss of privacy, fragility, memory, and the failure of control and power.
Arrechea has participated in numerous group exhibitions at such venues as the Museum of Art and Design, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Shanghai Art Museum, China; P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center, New York; and Kunsthalle, Berlin, Germany. He represents Cuba at the 54th Venice Biennale, 2011, and has also exhibited at the Havana Biennial 2009 and 2000; the 2005 Braziers International, Oxfordshire, England; the Venice Biennale 2005; the Liverpool Biennial 2004; the Shanghai Biennial 2002; and the Sao Paulo Biennial 2002. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain; and Museo de Bellas Artes, Havana, Cuba, among others. Arrechea was recently selected to be the Spring 2013 public sculpture artist for the Park Avenue Mall Project. He lives and works in Spain.
