DREAMING CITY: DAN WEBER – MANNA GALLERY
August 6 @ 5:00 pm - September 18 @ 5:00 pmFree
Manna Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of “Dreaming City”, an installation by Dan Weber which will use the entire gallery’s space. The exhibition premiers First Friday, August 6 and continues until Saturday, September 18. A reception for the artist will be held First Friday from 5 to 7 pm.
In Daniel Weber’s installation, the themes within the novel “Invisible Cities”, by Italian writer Italo Calvino, (an imagined conversation between the great ruler Kublai Khan and the Italian explorer Marco Polo), are explored through text, audio/visual and construction, complimenting Calvino’s surrealistic vision of the ephemeral quality of ambition, conceit, and empire.
Inspiration for Bay Area visual artist Daniel Weber’s multi-media installations owe much to his earlier play-writing career. Mr. Weber especially enjoyed working with set, lighting, and sound designers – artists who created magical, all-encompassing environments that drew the audience into new and imagined worlds.
These theatrical, transformative environments have motivated Mr. Weber to create immersive audio/visual/literary worlds in a gallery setting.
