Saturday, September 20 -Thursday, October 16, 2014 Opening reception: Saturday, September 20, 1-3pm Gallery hours: Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11am to 4pm. This show surveys collage practices in the Bay Area, including related practices of decollage, assemblage, photomontage and detournement. Collage will be conceived broadly as an "allegorical" technique of signification that relies on methods of "confiscation, superimposition and fragmentation," as Benjamin Buchloh observed in his 1980 theorization of collage and montage.
Curated by Gwen Allen.

Saturday, April 27th, 1- 4:30 Real Time and Space 125 10th Street, Oakland, CA 94607 Points of Departureis a nomadic talk series curated by Zoë Taleporos and Pablo Guardiola that brings together cultural producers from the Bay Area and abroad to discuss source material for projects or topics of interest that are peripheral to their practice. The second edition of Points of Departure at Real time and Space is centered around Science Fiction, Horror, and Fantasy. Five artists have been asked to give 20 minute presentations on a sub-genre of one of these categories in an attempt to showcase their non-art-based knowledge from their unique perspective as arts practitioners. The goal is not to have the presenters talk about their own work, but to give them an opportunity to discuss other interests/passions that may or may not inform their projects.
Artists presenting include: Elizabeth Bernstein, Michelle Blade, Matt Borruso, Luke Butler, and Conrad M. Meyers II.

Ad Hoc Vox and Smack Mellon are pleased to invite you to 1984-2001, a panel discussion about science fiction developed in response to the utopic and dystopic elements in Smack Mellon’s current exhibitions. This panel will take place at the gallery on Sunday, November 8th at 3:00 p.m.
George Orwell’s 1984 was written during the Second World War and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 was released in 1968. That these moments of cultural upheaval produced two such extreme visions of the future is hardly a surprise; sometimes referred to as speculative fiction, science fiction is premised on a radical re-imagining of the cultural moment. Whether optimistic or cautionary, any representation of a set of social conditions that differs from the author’s own are bound to that author’s aspirations for the present, making science fiction a genre often read for its political import.
With futures proposed by 1984, 2001, and so many other works of science fiction now set in our past, it is also a genre that has developed into a highly codified language with easily recognized aesthetic forms. Thus, science fiction has a history subject to both scholarly scrutiny and artistic employment, and both forms of engagement can explore science fiction’s relationship to its contemporary environment, speculative possibilities, and the tropes of the genre.
Ad Hoc Vox has gathered together practitioners, critics, and scholars who have studied science fiction’s role in literature, film, and architecture to discuss what possibilities science fiction offers contemporary artists. The panel's participants are Ed Halter, Carrie Hintz, Geoff Manaugh, Brian Francis Slattery, and Deborah Taylor. Matt Borruso will moderate the panel, which will be followed by a Q&A with the audience..
