SLATE contemporary gallery is proud to present an immersive and imaginative exhibition, Muse, for the winter season in Oakland, featuring new works by acclaimed photography, sculpture, and installation team Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti. SLATE contemporary first exhibited the duo’s work in the 2016 group show, Mystery and Narrative. The 2019-2020 exhibition will be a solo show, and has been planned to coincide with their participation in Oakland Museum of California’s exhibition No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man (on view through February 16), which was organized by the Smithsonian Museum’s Renwick Gallery and traveled to the Cincinnati Art Museum this past summer.
