SIGNMAN: John Law

SIGNMAN: John Law(https://proartsgallery.org/event/signman-john-law/) is a three-month long retrospective of the San Francisco based artist John William Vincent Law, curated by Pro Arts’ Executive Director and Curator, Natalia Ivanova Mount. The exhibition, scheduled to open on June 7th, 2019, at Pro Arts Gallery will include rare documentation of events, pranks and explorations, neon art, and multi-media installations.

“John’s work offers tales from the underground that challenge our contemporary moment, characterized by a zombie-like addiction to social media, weakened ability and will to gather, explore and experience informally,” says Curator of the retrospective Natalia Ivanova Mount.

We need the rituals of the underground today more than ever so we can imagine the world beyond capitalism, beyond commodification, and the menial production of objects and ideas in an art world, beholden to a market value. It is time to give props to one of the most under-recognized luminaries in San Francisco and beyond, John Law.

SIGNMAN: John Law retrospective will be accompanied by a public program, consisting of talks by several of John Law’s key collaborators and friends. In respect of Law's work with the Cacophony Society, SRV/A will be curating a tiny secret event. SRV/A is a clandestine arting cabal whispered into life by Joshu DeLeon with Lauren Banister, Sunday Dalton, Tyler Heibeck, Giovanna Marcus, Irene Zhou, another key figure who chose not to be named, and the inimitable Dominic Santiago.

SQUAW VALLEY February 2019 Video

Filmed in Squaw Valley Resort, California. In the 2nd week of February 2019, 5 meters (16 feet) of snow feel upon the Sierra Nevada. California is well know for its fierce droughts and fires, but this year it's El Niño, and we're having a close to record year so far. It's very similar to 1997-1998 winter. The 2016-2017 winter was still wetter, so it's surprising to see that much snow and water again. We're all very happy, and hoping for a better summer! Nevertheless, this video was filmed the 3rd week of February 2019. We had amazing snow on the slopes in Squaw Valley. So I try to get my camera out a bit and film the kids in the ski camp I joined as a counselor. This was all filmed in Squaw. You can see lake Tahoe for a bit.

Filmed with Canon 5d Mark IV. Plus 24-105mm lens. I should have used my DJI Ronin-S but it was getting heavy to carry all this.
