With diversity within community as a catalyst, 2291 3rd St. is pleased to announce the group exhibition titled Real Time and Space: A Group Exhibition, including work by a selection of artists from the Oakland-based Real Time & Space Artist Studios — on view from November 21 through December 19, 2015.
Real Time & Space: A Group Exhibition is a collaboration between Real Time & Space artists, Minnesota Street Project’s Brion Nuda Rosch, Director of the soon-to-open Minnesota Street Project Artist Studio Program — opening 2016 — and 2291 3rd St.’s curators Teresa Goodman and Ralph Vázquez-Concepción. The exhibition will address heterogeneity, individuality, and community within Real Time & Space by engaging select works by the included artists —the exhibition fosters a dialogue on possible points of divergence and convergence between their studio practices and individual aesthetic investigations. The exhibition includes work by Kate Rhoades, Conrad Guevara, Amy M. Ho, Cybele Lyle, Amy Rathbone, Dan Swindel, Lana Williams, Emma Spertus, Beth Krebs, Lex Kosieradzki, Rachelle Reichert, Ian Dolton-Thornton, Courtney Tramposh, and Mark Nicola.
Real Time & Space (RTS) is comprised of 15 work-only artist studios and an artist residency program located in a former print shop in Oakland’s Chinatown. The mission of RTS is to provide a productive and participatory workspace for its members and residents by fostering opportunities for dialog, collaboration, and cross-disciplinary interaction. Their members include a broad range of artists, writers, curators, and designers. By offering a residency program open to local, national, and international cultural producers, RTS seeks to facilitate the exchange of ideas within and beyond the Bay Area artistic community. Numerous public programs such as artist talks, film screenings, and social events enhance their overall mission by supporting further opportunities for conversations to take place.
