Emily K. Holmes has written a review of The Dissidents, The Displaced, and The Outliers for San Francisco's KQED.
Below in an excerpt:
At Random Parts, COLL.EO’s City Blocks (2014) mimic children’s building blocks, yet depict images of people sleeping on sidewalks and urinating in public. These potentially invasive photographs are complicated at times by the shadow of a Google Street View car and the marks of a browser’s interface, virtual directional arrows and location stamps. Left implicit is the suggestion that homelessness is a possible consequence of the very technology capturing its likeness. [...]
The Dissidents is more than a collection of facts to learn. These local artists, addressing issues of pressing local concern with some of the most interesting practices in the Bay Area, are proof that dissent is alive and well. The exhibition itself stays complicated; artworks overlap and interlock and it takes some work to figure out how everything fits together. When examining how power shifts across economies during times of change, simple answers don’t necessarily exist. The Dissidents attests to this challenge. Whatever direction the Bay Area heads, these artworks are evidence of a population that won’t be silenced.
