With the opening of Alice in Wonderland around the corner, it seems like everyone is gravitating towards this “twisted tea party” theme: Stella McCartney will be designing a special collection of Alice-themed jewelry, Tom Binns is creating selection of oversized furniture and pieces adorned with teacups, and even beauty brands like O.P.I will be offering four new colors, in honor of this movie debut!

With that said, has over 227 different images from various artists, these include portraits/posters from the original movie to the newest featured film that is about to release.

Gallerie Emmanuel Perrotin presets Pharrell Williams’ new design creation, The Tank char, at Colette from March 22nd to 28th and then at the gallery from March 30th to April 24th by appointment. After making the “Perspective” chair in 2008, designed as a reflection on love, and the work “The Simple Things” in 2009, the fruit of a collaboration with Takashi Murakami, Pharrell Williams tackles the theme of war. Made of Plexiglas and foal or calf, the four models of the Tank Chair are released in a limited edition of eight pieces in each style.

“Two Four looks at four decades of Latina culture through collected photographs and ephemera from the archive of life long 24th Street/Mission resident Sandy Cuadra as well as through preserved archival footage of the neighborhood from the 70s and 80s collected by Veronica Majano and the Mission Film Archive”. – Clare Haggarty(curator).

“Two-Four Home Girls, Circa 1980” The Tiny Locas, “You and I” dances, and the Low-rider cars represented rites of passage and the social scene for teenage girls in the early 1980’s in the 24th Street Mission neighborhood. The exhibition features photographs by Sandy Cuadra- a former Tiny Loca who has lived in the
Mission for over 30 years- memories of dancing, cars, parties in the park, and tight friendships. In addition, footage from the Mission Film Archive (thanks to filmmaker Vero Majano) further activates the world of Low-riders and the “You and I” dances. Vintage posters to promote those dances, made by Mitchell Salazar, also hang in the gallery, and complete this nostalgic look into a particular period in the Mission that speaks to the former teenager in all of us.

A Most Unusual Alphabet
by Dave Perillo

The PRIMER Microstudio is pleased to present a complete alphabet created by illustrator Dave Perillo for this March’s First Friday opening.

Dave draws inspiration for his work from many of the following sources: 1950’s sci-fi movies, Charles Schultz, Jim Flora, Ray Harryhausen, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Henson, Hanna Barbera, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock and character advertising icons. Dave currently resides in the ‘burbs of Philly, works as an illustrator, believes that bowling is the sport of kings and a bag of Swedish Fish is a seafood dinner.
