Join us to celebrate the opening of two exhibitions, Edgar Arceneaux and Yishai Jusidman: Prussian Blue, in the First Floor Galleries.

The evening will feature performances by musician and composer Zachary Watkins (formerly of Black Spirituals) and his collaborator Sharmi Basu. Both are resonant forces in the Bay Area experimental sound community, and they will perform both collaborative and solo compositions. Additional music will be provided by DJ Patrick Lotilla.

Proceeds from opening night party ticket sales will support YBCA’s arts and civic engagement residency at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in San Francisco’s Excelsior district, which helps students develop the creative, collaborative and critical thinking skills to become change makers in their communities.

— About the exhibitions:

Edgar Arceneaux- ybca.org/whats-on/edgar-arceneaux

Los Angeles–based artist and YBCA 100 honoree Edgar Arceneaux explores historical patterns around race and representation through drawings, installations, and theater.

At YBCA, the artist experiments with the exhibition as a format of presentation. Until Until Until… (2015–17) is a multi-media video installation as well as a live action play—written, staged, and directed by Arceneaux—that revisits a controversial performance by Ben Vereen at Ronald Reagan’s inauguration. Complementing this work, Library of Black Lies (2016) is a large-scale sculpture and labyrinth containing a collection of crystallized books—from dictionaries, to encyclopedias, to novels—presenting variants on African American history.

Until Until Until… will be performed live in the gallery space on February 22–24, 2018.

Yishai Jusidman: Prussian Blue- ybca.org/whats-on/yishai-jusidman

Yishai Jusidman, a Mexican artist of Jewish heritage currently working in Los Angeles, explores the history of paint and painting and presents them through a contemporary lens.

Yishai Jusidman: Prussian Blue is a series of paintings in which the artist used just one color—Prussian blue, one of the earliest pigments artificially developed and used by European painters—to visualize sites of the Holocaust. The chemical compound that makes up the pigment Prussian blue is a form of Prussic acid used by the Nazis at some of the extermination camps, and traces of the pigment remain in the buildings of some of those camps to this day. Jusidman’s paintings serve as a quiet reminder of the consequences of hate.

This exhibition is organized by Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) in Mexico City, and is making its United States debut at YBCA.
