Part curatorial, part installation Spectrum-Gestalt brings together artists’ works from a wide variety of genres and mediums, grouping them into an expansive spectrum of color. The first spectrum was one of our most popular exhibits and the unofficial launch of our new Bergamot Station space and has since become an annual open call, allowing the gallery to discover new talent. Spectrum-Gestalt is part of an ongoing series of installation/curatoriales exploring gestalt principles by Australian artist/curator, Airom.
Bleicher Project Space is located inside Bleicher/Gorman (bG) Gallery in Bergamot Station G8A. bG specializes in artists who have blurred boundaries between traditionally divided art approaches in their work with a particular emphasis on bridging ‘inside’ and ‘outside,’ and ‘highbrow’ and ‘lowbrow.’ Bleicher Project Space is an exhibit area within the gallery that has a focus on experimental projects and collaborative installations.

Eugene Rodríguez is a San Francisco based visual artist whose work includes film, painting, and installation. Aesthetically, his artwork incorporates theater, neorealism, and surrealism and then utilizes multiple painting and storytelling approaches to create a kaleidoscopic hybrid. Rodríguez’s latest work, After A Somewhat Prolonged Lapse Of Memory, acts as a portal for time travel and looks at the history of the American people through the lens of those that have been left out.
Eugene Rodríguez’s films and videos have been featured in numerous national and international festivals. His paintings, prints, and drawings have been featured in solo exhibitions in New York City and San Francisco as well as group exhibitions across the country.
