Something Completely Different
City Limits Gallery, Oakland
Through September 13, 2014
Sixty artists have been invited to contribute to Something Completely Different, a sprawling salon-style group show unlike any of the previous exhibitions at City Limits. The participating artists, at various stages of their respective careers, have been asked to contribute one new work which differs from anything they have made before. Although the format of the exhibition has changed, the simple invitation to “make something different” aligns with the goal for every exhibition at City Limits: to show new works by artists which deviate from their usual art practice or discipline.
The opening reception for this show will function as a fundraiser for City Limits, an artist-run space which is currently funded and operated indepedently of grants or outside financial support. At the reception, limited edition City Limits merchandise will be available, as well as refreshments courtesy of Pacific Coast Brewery in Old Oakland.
