Sharks, Lions and Ships is the title of a new exhibition by artist Jacob Dahlgren, currently on view at Steven Wolf Fine Arts in San Francisco, California. Dahlgren is a Swedish Artist that participated in the 2007 Venice Biennale, and is a 2009 artist in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts. The work in Sharks, Lions and Ships is based on two previous performances that the artist conducted consisting of a demonstration march featuring around 30 people each carrying signs bearing abstract paintings by Swedish artist Olle Baertling. The performance first took place in Stockholm in 2007, and most recently in the hills of Marin County during the artist’s residency at the Headlands.
Exhibiting simultaneously in the project room of Steven Wolf Fine Arts is Tomorrow, a new curatorial project by San Francisco-based artist James Tantum. For this project, Tantum asked 40 artist to produce a single work based around the word Tomorrow, to be placed in an 11″ x 14″ box. Forty-five boxes were produced each containing a wide range of media and vast response to the word. Forty of the boxes will be given to each participating artist and 5 will be available for the purchase by the public.
