It was very late last night
I sat at the radio
Dialing from left to right
Why I do not know

I heard a man in a voice low
And sweet with circumspection
Say innocent listener don’t you know
The flame is its own reflection
The flame is its own reflection

He turned me on off I turned him
We tuned out all direction
I sat alone my head aswim
The flame is its own reflection!
The flame is its own reflection!

The universe is nought but sound
Sound is its own perfection
Mind is the only truth I’ve found
The flame is its own reflection!
The flame is its own reflection!

I sat alone my head aswim
The flame is its own reflection!
Mind is the only truth I’ve found
The flame is its own reflection!
Mind is the only truth I’ve found
The flame is its own reflection!
The flame is its own reflection!

REMEMBER WHEN NOTHING WAS HERE

CLIFF HENGST

DECEMBER 2017 / MINNESOTA STREET PROJECT

An exhibit of signs and words, and words on signs… observations on art writing and art talking, and talking about art differently than how we write about art. Why? Is there a reason we write (or attempt to write) so damn fancy when we often talk about art so crudely and / or cruelly? Is one more real? Has one been validated?

Cliff Hengst is an artist and performer, with a BFA from SFAI and current teaching position in the SFAI grad program. Hengst’s one-man play, "Mr. Akita" was recently performed at the Berkeley Art Museum as part of their Matrix program. He has exhibited his work at SFMOMA, Southern Exposure, The San Francisco Arts Commission and Gallery 16 in San Francisco. Hengst has performed and exhibited at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel, Machine Project in Los Angeles and , The Tang Museum at Skidmore College in New York.

PARANOID TIERS
A collection of collaborative drawings by:
GRIFFIN MCPARTLAND & PAUL URICH
August 5th - August 31st 2017
at Minnesota Street Project / Gallery 107
1275 Minnesota Street
San Francisco, CA

/

/

San Francisco
A garbage man picks up a discarded art history book on his route
He returns to his home across the bay
He tears a page from it’s contents 
And writes a few words - a poem
The book page is mailed to a friend near Ocean Beach
Using pencil and later ink a drawing responds to the text
And so it continues

In sense he started it all
When he began to collect notes from his collaborator
Unknown to the modest garbage man someone found value in the notes left behind
On an earlier morning a suggestion to collaborate

/

/

“He suggested we collaborate back and forth over the course of a year and have a show.
I flat out refused. I don't draw or paint. I make cutting observations that feel
passive aggressive and petty. I didn't see the relationship between his beautiful images
and my angry dialog. Despite me, a few weeks later in February of 14,
Paul sent me a package. It was to be the first of many.

I stopped worrying about making a mess and wrote whatever came to mind
on these articulate graphite drawings on old stationary, and sent them back to the city.
More would arrive, I would attempt to turn off my concern and chip away
at the stack. Soon, I began to get antsy, I would tear pages out of old books
I had found in the trash, write on them and mail them to Paul. The dynamic was
reversed and the the project gained momentum. The conversation began
to take on new directions that surprised the both of us. This shit was fun.”

- Griffin McPartland

I Never Learned the Title of the Song I Always Sing is a group exhibition
featuring a selection of artists from Minnesota Street Project’s Studio Program.

‘I like to take my time and look in all the windows,
Pretend that I got money to buy what’s in the windows,
Lookin’ at the ladies, all dressed up in the windows,
Watchin’ the laundry comin’ out of all the windows,
Watchin’ the cops puttin’ tickets on the windows,
While I’m walkin’. — Silver Apples

It is 3am
I am in my studio
In the basement
Shoving a pile of clay
Doodling with the edge of the sledgehammer
Covering old linens with house paint
My wife and son are sleeping
This is ridiculous
And so are you
For no good reason
I am in my studio
In the basement

OK Great THANKS this is SO RIDICULOUS

At the end of the day we make the work we make
And we return to it the next day

Nothing makes sense
And we return to it the next day

No one is making sense of it all
And we return to it the next day
