66 South First St.: Defragmentation 66 by Michele Guieu

Defragmentation 66 is an adaptation of the last installation Iíve made in San Diego: Defragmentation: Rearranging Bits and Pieces of Memory. It is an ongoing project and the occasion to reflect on bits and pieces of my memories, as I am recalling/documenting them. The project originated when I was about to leave San Diego after living there for 6 years. I thought about the different times Iíve left a place in my life. Defragmentation 66 is the first installation I am showing in San Jose since Iíve moved and it represents a link between the two towns Ė and beyond. The installation is on a smaller scale but uses some essential elements featured in the first version of the show: an ensemble of paintings, a painted background and videos. The videos in Defragmentation 66 are new memories and were taken here, in the bay area. The address number where the show is held, 66, is an interesting symbol in my life: the first time I came to the US, thatís the road I travelled on.

Exhibit on view through August 30th. Visible 24/7 from the sidewalk.

95 South Market St.: Roundels sculptures by Gianfranco Paolozzi


"I was looking in the recycle container full of paper from flexo printing presses.

Thatís when I felt the passion again: round surfaces screaming to be used. I looked at them changing on the floor of my studio. I had to use my marks, my moments on the surfaces as a sign of me being there.

Thatís when the roundels were born." ~Gianfranco

Exhibit on view through August 30th. Visible 24/7 from the sidewalk.


Then make your way over to the SoFA District for the monthly art walk and 4th Annual SubZERO Subculture Festival!
