Right Window Gallery: Patrick Hillman: Sets & Reps (opening)

Sunday, November 13, 2011, 6:00 pm

Patrick Hillman’s new installation Sets & Reps evolved from a series of conversations and interactions between the artist and a 70 year old bodybuilder named Guy. Discussions on male muscle culture, gay sex apps, and heartbreak translated into a diverse range of works including crocheted undergarments, a paper and Mylar sculpture, and a series of photographs.

Patrick Hillman is a San Francisco based artist who makes work in photography, video, sculpture, drawing, text, and crochet.  He received his MFA from the California College of the Arts in 2009 and has since shown in the United States, Germany, and Australia.  A music video he created – Reading Rosalind Krauss by The Size Queens – appeared in the Best of issue of Artforum in December 2009.  In 2010, he directed a community art center for the city of San Francisco where he designed and taught digital media classes for young adults with developmental disabilities.
At Right Window, artist Jason Hanasik has turned November into a running series of individual shows under the general title of You roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine.

You roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine is a series of week long solo exhibitions. Noticing the generative nature of the intergenerational  relationships in his own life, Hanasik tasked each invited artist to create a week long solo show with the stipulation that the artists collaborate with someone significantly older or significantly younger than they are. The result is a captivating series of projects which eloquently build on top of each other to collectively explore the themes of isolation, miscommunication, and expectations.
