February 16 - May 27: Monet, The Late Years

De Young Museum, San Francisco: The exhibition features fifty paintings by Claude Monet dating mainly from 1913 to 1926, the final phase of his long career, including twenty works from the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris. During his late years, the well-traveled Monet stayed close to home, inspired by the variety of elements making up his own garden at Giverny, a village located some 45 miles northwest of Paris. With its evolving scenery of flower beds, footpaths, willows, wisteria, and nymphaea, the garden became a personal laboratory for the artist’s sustained study of natural phenomena. The exhibition focuses on the series that Monet invented, and just as important, reinvented, in this setting. It reconsiders the conventional notion that many of the late works painted on a large scale were preparatory for the Grand Decorations, rather than finished paintings in their own right. Boldly balancing representation and abstraction, Monet’s radical late works redefined the master of Impressionism as a forebear of modernism.


November 29: Tash Sultana @ The Fox

Oakland, CA: TASH SULTANA is a dynamic young artist who has commanded world attention since homemade videos of Tash went viral. A true virtuoso, Tash was soon selling out massive theatres globally and playing at the world’s biggest festivals – no mean feat for an artist who just a year before was recording songs on a go pro in a bedroom.

Since Tash’s grandfather gifted a guitar at the age of three, the self-taught artist quickly developed a unique style that has people lining up to see around the globe. Tash has mastered over 15 instruments, vocals that shine with a magical quality and a live show that needs to be seen to be believed.

The one-person powerhouse started out playing open mic nights on a fake id and busking on the streets of Melbourne. Now Tash is selling out every headline show, from theatres to arenas across multiple countries and playing dozens of high profile festivals around the globe.


March 20: HÆLOS@ The Independent

HÆLOS return as a four-piece with new single, “Buried In The Sand,” and an accompanying video by renowned directors the Sacred Egg. The initial HÆLOS trio comprised of Lotti Benardout, Arthur Delaney, and Dom Goldsmith has expanded with the addition of Daniel Vildósola, now a fulltime member after being part of the HÆLOS touring band. Two-plus years since the release of their debut album, Dust (Matador), “Buried In The Sand” is the first taste of more new music to come via Infectious in 2019.
