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.

L'APERO @ Amélie on Polk

French know how to hang out, spend time with friends without looking at the clock, or checking out the next party. We just like company and endless conversations. Wine as well, maybe. So Pierre Bee and his compadres at L’Apéro make sure it happens often. Last night it was at Amelie on Polk in San Francisco! It also included an appearance by Jerome and Ridesbyme. Check him out, awesome sidecar tours around SF.

Interview avec Olivier Babinet réalisateur de SWAGGER

Olivier Babinet est venu présenter son film SWAGGER au Festival International du Film de San Francisco. C'est un film très touchant qui nous présente 11 adolescents d'Aulnay-sous-bois (93). Il a présenté le film à des élèves d'école publique de San Francisco, souvent défavorisés. Voila un entretien qu'il nous a accordé après le film dans la salle de projection du ROXIE de San Francisco, une salle de cinéma indépendant qui survit à San Francisco grâce aux fans. On vous conseille bien évidemment d'aller voir le film. On a beaucoup aimé.

  • L'interview a été conduit par Nathalie Gobbi de LOSTINSF.
  • Filmé et édité par moi-même, Olivier Bonin pour Madnomad Films.
  • Musique: JB Dunckel - Felicity Price (BO du film Swagger)
  • Caméra: Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro.

Ocean Beach filmed with the URSA Mini Pro

I've started filming with the new Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6k camera. The camera is a high end professional camera that records RAW and PRORES. There are many reviews online. The camera produces stunning images with lots of latitude to work with in POST.

Here's a short video filmed at Ocean Beach in 120fps to test the slow motion, especially with surfers in the big surf of this place. Enjoy.

Music: Doctor Flake | Sueurs Froides

Dust & Illusions. Full Feature Documentary

dust2_square.jpg

Duration of trailer: 6' (Film duration: 75') After 4 years of work, Dust & Illusions is completed. The film explores 30 years of history of Burning Man all the way back to the late 70s into the origins of the event, with never seen footage of the Suicide Club, the Cacophony Society, and the early burns on San Francisco Baker beach. Twenty interviewees expose their views about the history of the event, and its evolution into a large festival. The film is the first to present Burning Man with a critical eye (not a negative one) and analyze how successful the event really is in its intention of recreating community and bringing art back to "ordinary" people. Watch it and be the judge, as the film doesn't try to draw conclusions one way or the other.
