Material Matters and 4 Proposals for Reading reviewed by David Roth at Squarecylinder.com.

Material Matters may be the only perennial show in the Bay Area to openly take a stand in favor of art that is materially engaged. This is not to say that other shows mounted by other galleries don't do the same; only that none do so with the same conscious fervor. The title itself throws down a challenge to conceptualists who, building on Duchamp, once insisted that ideas, because they exist in the mind, don’t require visual incarnation. The surprise in this incarnation of the show, now in its second year, is that conceptualists infiltrate the proceedings. They do so in the form of a concurrent exhibition called Four Proposals for Reading, a small, powerful collection of book art in the back of the gallery that cross pollinates the main event, suggesting that the alleged differences between thinkers and makers might not be all that great.
