SPOTLIGHT: KAISER CENTER LOBBY

Downtown Oakland’s Kaiser Center has undergone a stunning renovation designed by Gensler, creating a space that is bright, accessible, and inviting to both tenants and visitors. SLATE was charged with commissioning three large-scale, site-specific paintings for the lobby by selected artists Amy Ellingson (San Francisco), Audra Weaser (Los Angeles), and Maya Kabat (Berkeley). While all three artists are working in abstract styles, their individual visual languages evoke different references and subjects. “We felt that the triad of technology (Ellingson), architecture (Kabat), and nature (Weaser) summed up several of the most important forces at play in Bay Area life today,” explains SLATE principal Danielle Fox. “Each tells a different story, but together they tell a story of a time and place that many people here can relate to.” SLATE is also pleased to have placed a series of four acrylic on dyed paper paintings by Oakland-based artist Kelly Ording in the Kaiser Center’s upstairs space.

SPOTLIGHT: VENTURE CAPITAL FIRM

This SOMA venture capital firm and incubator had worked with a team of architects to convert an old gymnasium into a contemporary workspace. The goal was to create a vibe that was hip and cosmopolitan. To create a collection with this tone, SLATE sourced art not only from its own gallery, but also from other galleries in San Francisco, from a European publisher, and directly from emerging artists’ studios.

SPOTLIGHT: AI TECH COMPANY

This San Francisco artificial intelligence firm was interested in Op art, modernist abstraction, and artwork generated through computational models. To answer this brief, SLATE sourced reproductions of 1960s-era Op paintings, limited edition prints from local digital artists, select open edition works, and went as far as Austria to purchase images created through the artist’s algorithms, which were then used to make custom metal prints here in the Bay Area.

SPOTLIGHT: 44 Montgomery Lobby

SLATE was tasked with sourcing artwork for the lobby of this 43-story skyscraper in the heart of San Francisco that was the tallest building west of Dallas when it was completed in 1967. The challenge was to balance a walnut feature wall on the opposite side of the lobby. So, the client was seeking large-scale work with strong materiality, darker colors, and a nature theme to bring the outdoors in. SLATE commissioned three local artists to create large scale (10 to 12 foot wide) encaustic paintings, as well as a steel and stone sculpture to complete this special space.
