-Alter-Circuit: Shiyuan Liu - My Paper Knife at Et al. The gallery's exceptional programming continues with work by this Beijing/Copenhagen artist.
-Theory of Survival: Fabrications at Southern Exposure. Taraneh Hemami has assembled an outstanding roster of a dozen California-based Iranian artists into a vibrant marketplace within the walls of SoEx. Try to visit during this Saturday's Bazaar.
-Matt Borruso: Wax House of Wax at Steven Wolf Fine Arts. Wonderfully creepy cut-and-paste-paper collages and sculptural installations that reference horror films, interior design, DIY, and much more.
The George Kuchar Reader, edited by Andrew Lampert. Everyone in SF still misses George, and this is a chance to peruse some delightful ephemera including many notes written in Mr. Kuchar's own hand.
The Sunlandic Twins by Of Montreal has been on heavy rotation for me after I danced my feets off at one of their shows at the Great American last week. Let's pretend we're in Antarctica.
Llyn Foulkes: One Man Band, directed by Tamar Halpern and Christopher Quilty. "The Most Famous Artist You've Never Heard Of" is the perfect tagline. Keep an eye out for screenings, otherwise hopefully the film will be released online soon.
Anything from Hella Vegan Eats. I have dreams about their potsticker burrito.
-Ideation at SF Playhouse. A must-see, particularly for those who have ever been in a project meeting that goes awry.
-Pastorella at The Exit. Stuart Bousel's latest is a delightful behind-the-scenes look at how actors act when they're not on stage.
-The Whale at Marin Theatre Company. A week in the life of a 600-pound man living in Idaho. Intense, beautiful, incredibly moving.
