Opening Reception: Saturday, September 11th, 4-7pm

"Baer Ridgway Exhibitions is pleased to present EYE AGAINST I, a solo exhibition and large scale installation by Bay Area artist Chris Duncan. Taken from the title of the incredibly influential punk/hardcore record I AGAINST I by the Washington DC based Bad Brains, this moniker references Duncan's early influences of the punk/hardcore community and his current concepts in regards to optics, self-reflection and perception. Building upon op-art and the work of color theorists, this new body of work is about seeing, both literally and metaphorically. While questioning the objectivity of sight, Duncan provides a platform of contemplation of what is real.

For his most elaborate installation to date, Chris Duncan will alter the gallery space through a dizzying array of mirrors, string installations, new walls and scrims. In addition, Duncan has curated a series of readings and performances to be held in the gallery during the course of the exhibition."
