260 Utah Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
October 15 – November 23, 2016
Reception: October 15, 4-6 pm

Opening October 15 at Hosfelt Gallery, Actualidades/Breaking News is an exhibition of new work by Argentinian artist Liliana Porter, featuring a new video work by the same name. The exhibition also includes paintings, sculptural objects, installations, works on paper, and photographs. Porter draws on an extensive collection of figurines, toys, and travel souvenirs she has developed over the years, incorporating these objects in scenes that invite political, philosophical, and existential interpretation. Porter’s new video, Actualidades/Breaking News, uses these trinkets and toys to illustrate a sequence of scenes structured like sections of a newspaper—“Arts and Leisure,” “Fashion and Style,” “World News,” and “Religion,” for example—and features music composed and arranged by Sylvia Meyer.
