Knock Knock Sat @Needles and Pens

It is early Saturday evening, and a steady hum of excitement begins to build inside the Mission District's Needles & Pens art gallery. Students, sipping cans of Tecate, wax poetic about the future of street art with local skateboarders; ambient slowcore Casio sounds of the band Death Cheetah start to fill the room, and a group of older art aficionados hover inches away from pencil drawings of Ragnar Persson and Keith Shore and discuss the similar texture in the works. ~Read On

Saturday get on over to Needles and Pens for the opening of Knock Knock, a group exhibition curated by Malmö, Sweden's K R E T S FEATURING WORKS BY: AJ Fosik, Chris Johanson, Danilo Stankovic, Holly Stevenson, James Benjamin Franklin, Jeff Olsson, Jennifer Muskopf, Johanna Jackson, Keith Shore, Kim Hiorthøy, Malin Gabriella Nordin, Matthew Feyld, Megan Whitmarsh, Misaki Kawai, Peter Larsson, Phil Elverum, Ragnar Persson, Shoboshobo, & a mural by Richard Colman.

In August of 2010 Needles & Pens participated in an international cultural swap of sorts, by going to Sweden and curating an art show at KRETS. Now, in October, KRETS is coming to San Francisco and doing a show at N&P. The magic is real and so is the line-up they’ve assembled! ~check the blog from the trip. ||| 3253 16th St. 6-9pm
