Click HERE to read Aaron Harbour’s essay: Concrete & Seashells – A Sculptural Landscape. CCAI commissioned Harbour to write the exhibition essay for Pocket Ziggurat.
Harbour says he “does a few too many things”: he is an artist, curator, writer and DJ operating out of Oakland. As an artist, his work concerns identifying “misbehaving” objects, words and things acting against expectation with which he attempts to collaborate. He has shown work and or performed at The Luminary in St. Louis, Windo Space in Los Angeles, Gaylord’s in Oakland, and at City Limits, Southern Exposure, Asian Art Museum, and New Langton Arts, all in San Francisco. He has upcoming curatorial projects at Sardine (NY) and Holiday Forever (Jackson Hole, WY). He runs Curiously Direct, an art criticism website and blog at curiouslydirect.com and on Facebook, and has additionally written for Fillip Magazine, San Francisco Arts Quarterly, Art Practical, Decoy Magazine, Art Cards, and several small publications/artist catalogues.
