Artists explore aspirations

By
From page B12 | February 22, 2013 |

The de Young Museum will host Natalie Zimmerman and Michael Wilson, through March 3,  as part of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s Artist-in-Residence Program.

Zimmerman and Wilson’s work addresses the rhetoric of dreams and revolutionary longing that is ubiquitous in contemporary culture.

Looking at movements that imagine a future of social, economic, and environmental justice, the artists will use the Kimball Education Gallery at the de Young as a laboratory for exploring the intersection of individual and shared aspirations.

During their residency, Zimmerman and Wilson will invite experts from diverse backgrounds to facilitate dream experiments using both poetic and scientific methodologies. Throughout the month, Wilson and Zimmerman will also undergo ongoing research and production for their experimental film, “Close the Eyes.” The film will examine both the personal and collective dynamics of dreaming, and its relationship to larger social and cultural issues of our time.

Dream sessions in the Kimball Education Gallery at the de Young will take place on “Fabric Earth: A Textile Topography” handcrafted by Amber Bieg.

Inspired by her flying dreams and her visions of aerial-view landscapes, Bieg hand-felts floor textiles using ancient wet felting techniques. Influenced by her rural upbringing in New Mexico, Bieg believes that studying patterns in the natural landscape will help us design and build sustainable human systems.

Materials for Bieg’s project were coordinated by Fibershed, and were sourced from 100 percent local wool.

The Kimball Education Gallery is free and open to the public during museum hours. Visitors can interact with Natalie Zimmerman and Michael Wilson Wednesday through Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

The de Young Museum is located in Golden Gate Park at 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive in San Francisco.
