Published on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of New Langton Arts (NLA), a not-for-profit community arts organization that focused on fostering contemporary art. NLA was founded in 1975 in the South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood of San Francisco amid a need for an art space dedicated to contemporary art and "new media" such as performance art, video art, and installation art. NLA's first directors were Judy Moran and Renny Pritikin who figured prominently in the Bay Area arts scene for decades. Unfortunately, NLA became inactive in 2009 amid financial hardships. This catalog features Bay Area contemporary artists, artist statements, and other brief commentary. Among the featured artists are Celia Munoz, Connie Hatch, Chris Burden, Nancy Rubins, Shigeko Kubota, Dawn Fryling, Larry Andrews, Diane Andrews Hall, Tony Labat, Constance DeJong, Tony Oursler, Nayland Blake, John Woodall, and Tom Marioni. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
