Member Event (San Francisco): Curator-led exhibition tour at BAMPFA

07/26/2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Artadia Council members are invited to explore two exhibitions at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive with Director and Chief Curator Larry Rinder (1999 San Francisco Juror).

Ugo Rondinone: the world just makes laugh marks the artist’s first solo exhibition in the Bay Area. The exhibition showcases some of Rondinone’s most celebrated and iconic works, which capture the artist’s distinctive blend of colorful whimsy and melancholic undertones. The exhibition centers on an immersive, gallery-wide installation consisting of 45 life-size sculptures of festively attired clowns. Ugo Rondinone: the world just makes laugh is the sole west coast edition of Rondinone’s five-part international “serial exhibition,” which will also include a presentation at the Bass Museum of Art.

Charles Howard: A Margin of Chaos is the first museum exhibition in over six decades to explore Howard’s legacy. Howard was a pivotal figure in the Surrealist and abstract art movements of the mid-twentieth century and the exhibition will showcase more than 50 works by the artist, drawn from the collections of many esteemed museums across the country, that chart his affiliations with Surrealism and abstraction, as well as his previously underexplored roots in the Bay Area and its influence on his work.
