Coming Saturday: Dave Schubert at Shooting Gallery, Ernesto Yerena Montejano at White Walls

Juxtapoz // Thursday, 11 Nov 2010


People we know that are into 'zine culture, abstract photography, and just plain beautiful grime, are into Dave Schubert. Especially in San Francisco, Schubert is kind of a quiet leader in documenting various coinciding underground cultures, which has made him a bit of a legend.

This Saturday night (November 13) in San Francisco, Shooting Gallery and White Walls have two new shows opening up: one being the before-mentioned Dave Schubert's Vision Is a Dream at Shooting Gallery, and Ernesto Yerena Montejano's Ganas 20/20 opening at the same time at White Walls.


Dave Schubert's Vision Is a Dream is comprised of a selection of documentary, portrait, reportague, abstract, and experimental photographs. The press states "His work is often associated with the photographic record of the Mission School and other San Francisco underground movements." We are always hesistant on labels, but that seems about right.


We learning more about Ernesto Yerena Montejano at the moment, but his exhibition is based on a story written by the artist that details a revolutionary movement, GANAS, that is an ideology of reform, empowerment and motivation. The show will include 45-50 pieces comprised of stencil and collage on canvas, and rubyliths.

On top of that, and this is where the show goes to another level, Montejano will participate in an artist talk with highly regarded artists-activists, Melanie Cervantes, Jesus Barraza and Juan Fuentes on Saturday, November 13 at 3pm, prior to his opening reception.
