In its seventh edition, Bay Area Now is experimenting with a new approach to curating that highlights collaborations with our region's artists and arts organizations, and pushes beyond presentation toward a multidisciplinary season-long festival of diverse artistic practices in the Bay Area. BAN7's core idea is to decentralize the curatorial process by inviting regional arts organizations to program projects at YBCA, and to centralize the public presentation of some of the most exciting artistic voices in the region today through a strong, shared platform that makes visible the rich complexity of our many arts communities.

With his first exhibition in 1955 and his first Happening dating back to 1960, Jean-Jacques Lebel went on to establish his reputation as an international artist by contributing to a far-reaching dynamization of the most vital and refreshing counter-movement of our time—the artistic "Action." With his Festival de La libre Expression (from 1964 to 1968), and his Festival International Polyphonix (from 1979 on), in which thousands of artists, poets, philosophers, film-makers and musicians from all artistic directions participated, Lebel was an initiator of numerous artistic and political events.

There are countless texts, books, and exhibition catalogues about Richard Prince (b. 1949) as well as texts he has authored for his own publications and those of other artists. Gaining any overview of his exhibition activities is a challenge. Nevertheless, though his work has been widely shown, Richard Prince remains an enigmatic artist. Even though his artistic approaches remain opaque, his Cowboys, Nurses, and Jokes are renowned within contemporary art.

We never stop being animals, even as we engage in artistic expression and cultural consumption—certainly two of the most gracious interests that define our range of action, and which strongly contrast with the equally determining, yet far less noble, brutal features of our species, and which have been shockingly visible in these past months in so many parts of the world.  In being animal we follow nature's rhythms of accelerating and easing up. Every year we find ourselves like a swarm of insects rushing to finish our work before the summer, to then slow down to the sultry weather and regain energies for the harvest period.

The major exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart will offer the first comprehensive overview of paintings from the private art collection of Ute and Rudolf Scharpff.

The couple developed a preference for painting, and the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart will now be dedicating an exhibition to this focus of their collection with 65 works by 15 artists.

MATRIX 254 features a selection of works by artist Geta Brătescu (b. 1926), a critical figure in the history of postwar Romanian art. For over fifty years, the artist has continually reinvented her practice and subject matter, alternating among film, textiles, collage, performance, photography, sculpture, and installation. What remains consistent throughout her body of work, in the words of the exhibition's curator Apsara DiQuinzio, is "a rigorous, yet playful sense of experimentation." Due in large part to Nicolae Ceauşescu's totalitarian regime and Romania's subsequent political isolation in the latter half of the 20th century, Brătescu's work was little known to international audiences until recently.

A love of order and minimalism, rationalistic obsession, and a drive toward planned structures all seem to determine the scenery chosen by artist and filmmaker Josef Dabernig for his retrospective exhibition Rock the Void. The ostentatious tidiness of this show is, however unsettled by various subtle irritations and anomalies. Systems-immanent entropy presented with a good deal of conceptual humor becomes itself the subject of the exhibition.

New York City's public parks are home to the largest collection of one-wall handball courts in the world, and it should come as no surprise given that the game originated in Brooklyn. In the 19th century, many ball-wall games, such as squash, made their way to the US from England and Ireland, joining the long history of rubber-ball sports in the Americas. All these ball-wall games, including early versions of handball, required three or four walls, but in 1909, an Irish-American immigrant named Charles J.
