    For the last 40 years, the photographer Sebastião Salgado has been travelling through the continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project, which is a tribute to the planet's beauty. Sebastião Salgado's life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, who went with him during his last travels, and by Wim Wenders, himself a photographer.

    Baraka. Ron Fricke. 1992.

    Baraka is a documentary film with no narrative or voice-over. It explores themes via a compilation of natural events, life, human activities and technological phenomena shot in 24 countries on six continents over a 14-month period.
    The film is Ron Fricke's follow-up to Godfrey Reggio's similar non-verbal documentary film Koyaanisqatsi. Fricke was cinematographer and collaborator on Reggio’s film, and for Baraka he struck out on his own to polish and expand the photographic techniques used on Koyaanisqatsi. Shot in 70mm, it includes a mixture of photographic styles including slow motion and time-lapse. To execute the film's time-lapse sequences, Fricke had a special camera built that combined time-lapse photography with perfectly controlled movements.
    Locations featured include the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, the Ryoan temple in Kyoto, Lake Natron in Tanzania, burning oil fields in Kuwait, the smouldering precipice of an active volcano, a busy subwayterminal, tribal celebrations of the Maasai in Kenya, and chanting monks in the Dip Tse Chok Ling monastery.
    The film features a number of long tracking shots through various settings, including Auschwitz and Tuol Sleng, over photos of the people involved, past skulls stacked in a room, to a spread of bones. It suggests a universal cultural perspective: a shot of an elaborate tattoo on a bathing Japanese yakuza precedes a view of tribal paint.

    Exhibit dates: June 12th to July 13th

    A solo show by Ana Aranda.

    Colors shelter us, like the home of our childhood. Even though we leave home behind, we carry the colors that remind us of it. With a series of illustrations, Mexican visual artist Ana Aranda explores the meaning of home: its transportability and the fantastical elements that shape it.

    Ana’s Biography:

    Ana Aranda was born and raised in Mexico City, where she studied design. From there, she moved to France, where she completed her undergraduate studies in illustration. She now lives in San Francisco, where she obtained her MFA in Illustration.

    Ana’s work has been featured in galleries and museums in the United States, France, Mexico, and Italy. In San Francisco, she has painted murals in the Mission District, for the Consulate General of Mexico, and for the prestigious de Young Museum.

    Her illustrations can be found in picture books published in France and Italy. Ana’s US debut picture book The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra (written by Marc Tyler Nobleman, Penguin Random House) was released March 2017. She is currently working on her second picture book and a picture book that she both writes and illustrates.

    Her biggest inspirations are her childhood memories, the vibrant colors of Mexico, and music. Her work focuses on transforming the everyday into fantastical situations, and often include images from nature and whimsical creatures.
