No Human Eyes: Will Rogan
In progress:  October 10–November 4
Opening reception: Sunday, November 5
On view: through November 17

Multidisciplinary, Bay Area artist Will Rogan has recently been using documentary photography as a guiding element in producing sculptures. During his seasonal job as an expedition guide aboard a cruise ship in Antarctica, Rogan produced many images of a human-free landscape. Combining these images with handmade ceramic objects, and other items evocative of human innovation, Rogan’s Project Space installation presents a confrontation between the austere and rugged environments of wild nature and human ideals of objects, community, and function.

Open 24 Hours: Edra Soto

In progress: October 23–November 4
Opening reception: 
Sunday, November 5
On view: 
through November 17

Chicago-based artist Edra Soto has devoted much of her multifaceted artistic practice to investigating the ways that class and race figure in post-colonial representations. Since 2016, Soto has been photographically documenting her Chicago neighborhood, focusing especially on areas that are accessible at all hours (such as her boulevard and adjacent streets). These places are highly visible, yet are rarely—if ever—cleaned by the city, and constantly accumulate the city’s detritus. While documenting the debris and trash, Soto found traces of a drug and alcohol fueled economy, drawing connections to the city’s recent and deep past. At Headlands, Soto will relocate 24 Hours into Headlands’ Project Space, producing an exhibition that includes architectural interventions, continued photo documentation, and a workshop for exhibition visitors to produce objects to be placed in the space.
