Plenty of arts events on tap in Mountain View this fall

September 12, 2017 by  

As fall unofficially gets underway, Mountain View theaters and art galleries are beginning their new seasons. Area galleries and performance venues have a wide range of exhibitions and events on their calendars for fall.

At the Cantor Arts Center, part of Stanford University, Nina Katachdourian’s exhibition “Curiouser” runs through January 7. The exhibition is open Wednesday through Mondays from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm. On Thursdays, the gallery stays open until 8:00 pm.

The exhibition is being billed as a midcareer retrospective of Katchadourian’s work, which includes a mix of video, photography and sculpture. One of the highlights of the exhibition is the ‘On-Hold Musical Dance Party’, scheduled for October 19. During the event, Katchadourian will partner with two DJs, creating a soundtrack consisting of music and noises collected while she was on hold to various companies and contact centers.

Other exhibitions scheduled for the fall include Manuel Neri’s ‘Assertion of the Figure’, which is on display until February 12 at the Anderson Collection; Loie Hollowell’s ‘Point of Entry’ at the Pace Gallery from September 19 until November 2; and the Pacific Art League Anniversary Exhibition, which runs through September 28.

On the stage, TheatreWorks Silicon Valley will premiere ‘Constellations’, a romantic time-travel drama about beekeepers. The play runs through September 17. Next on the schedule is ‘The Prince of Egypt’, a world premiere musical, which will run from October 6 until November 5.
