Mauve? Office of Exhibition celebrates 3rd anniversary with “Out To Lunch,” a month-long art exhibition.
Mauve? Office of Exhibition, an unconventional art gallery that occupies two office cubicles in downtown Berkeley, is celebrating its birthday by transplanting its cubicle sensibility to the Wire+Nail Gallery on 3150 18th Street (at Treat). Mauve? founders Sabina Nieto and Tarak Shah are curating a 4-week retrospective entitled “Out to Lunch” at Wire+Nail from March 17th to April 15th, with an opening reception on Saturday, March 24th, from 7 to 9pm.
Featuring local artists who have shown at Mauve? in the past year, working in a variety of media including photography, installation, performance, beaded embroidery, drawing, writing, screen prints, and digital prints, the show looks to suggest the playful elements of the office work day: daydreams, small escapes, vacations, vices, snacks, reappropriation of office supplies.
The full list of participating artists: Neil Berrett, Mic D’Bernardo, Katie Hoffman, Maggie Lawson, Alexis Lopez, Jackie Hancock, Michael Ifland, Bridget May, Matt McKenzie, Natalia Melikova, Jenny Odell, Alissa Polan, Eduardo Valadez, Chelsea Ryoko Wong, Amber Jean Young, and Daniel Yovino.
Mauve? was founded in March of 2009 by Sabina Nieto and Tarak Shah, and has housed art exhibitions continuously since then, with each show running for four weeks. While trying to re-imagine what a cubicle can be, Mauve? also endeavors to construct a distinct relationship of audience to art and artist, whereby office employees get to meet artists and engage withnew art in the course of their working day, outside the constraints of traditional gallery or museum walls.

you know those old polaroids that you keep hidden away in that cigar box of yours? the ones you take out and thumb through every now and again after your fourth or fifth whisky? you know what i’m talking about… there are photographs that you keep, and then there are photographs that keep you. they may haunt, they may heal, they may be used against you in a court of law. or, they may just be the work of bay area photographer Hannah Olivia Nelson. much like that last drink, Hannah‘s narrative work plays upon our memory of people and places possibly forgotten. her photos possess a feeling of unsettling familiarity, a sense that we have been there, we have felt that, and now its time to move on… (if only we could). in short, Hannah Nelson’s work reminds us of a past as fleeting as the present. and no matter how much we may drink and/or try to forget, (or try to remember for that matter), these moments are worth a long and languid look, even if it is three in the morning. cheers!
