Bay Area Not Now

Bay Area Not Now from Stretcher on Vimeo.

Artist team Dan and Cheryl hosted a talk show formatted evening in which guest artists addressed the title topic Bay Area Not Now through their work. Seeking a critical distance from the pervasive here and now, looking beyond the local, and acting outside or in contrast to the context was the working concept for the evening's program.

Special Guests: Karla Milosevich, a San Francisco based video artist. Wayne Smith, a San Francisco-based visual and sound artist. Musical guest: Torsten Kretchzmar, a German electro-pop performer.

This event took place Thursday, August 18, 2005 as part of Green Room Now, Stretcher's project for Bay Area Now 4, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts' fourth triennial survey of Bay Area artistic activity which was held July 17 - November 6, 2005.
