Eyebeam in Objects, a group exhibition that opened on September 3, now continues through October 31. The exhibition represents an unusual collaboration between Upfor, a west coast commercial gallery founded in 2013, and the New York-based non-profit Eyebeam, which has actively provided support for and exposure of projects that critically engage with emerging technology since 1997. For the exhibition, director and curator Roddy Schrock asked some of Eyebeam's most forward-looking residency alumni working in myriad tech-related forms, from conceptual to sound arts, to render their work into objects.

Participating artists include Chloë Bass, Zach Blas, James Bridle, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Zach Gage, Brian House and Addie Wagenknecht.

Eyebeam in Objects has been critically and popularly well-received, welcoming over 1,500 viewers since opening. In Hyperallergic, E. Odin Cathcart describes the exhibition as 'a tremendous benefit to the art community and cultural growth of a city that enjoys repurposing the past rather than inventing the future.' K. Sandberg writes in an Artsy editorial that Schrock created 'a multifaceted exhibition of prints, sculptures, videos, and objects that comprise a traditional-looking exhibition but disseminate ideas not often found in art galleries.'

Julie Green
: My New Blue Friends
Drawing inspiration from Zen calligraphy, Japanese ceramics and the Pattern and Decoration movement, Green presents ceramics and egg tempera paintings against an expansive, process-based drawing in sumi ink which will cover the gallery walls. The works meditate on the ocean, consumption and the color blue.
