This latest ones, Propagations, is super anti-establishment end of the worls Matrix shit. Really dug it. … Full review
  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"Aug 11, 2007 · by Chris T. from YelpJohansson Projects is easily one of the top galleries in the East Bay. I believe thanks to Kimberly's curatorial talents the exhibitions are always interesting and the shows are filled with extremely varied but thematically consistent work. There seems to be an emphasis on using materials in unconventional … Full review
