Bruce Nauman: Blue and Yellow Corridor @ Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art
Sep 27 – Dec 30 all-day
12:00 am
Coinciding with the opening of Bruce Nauman’s (MFA ’66, UC Davis) retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, this exhibition features the first realization of a participatory environment Nauman conceived in 1970. The work is a narrow passageway that wraps around an existing room, combining colored fluorescent light and closed-circuit video to manipulate the viewer’s perceptual experience. An adjacent gallery includes artworks that situate the corridor within the artist’s career. Guest Curator: Ted Mann
Irving Marcus: Romance and Disaster, A Retrospective @ Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art
Sep 27 – Dec 30 all-day
Irving Marcus: Romance and Disaster, A Retrospective @ Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art | Davis | California | United States
12:00 am
The UC Davis legacy includes a series of coexisting developments explored by artists in northern California at the end of the Twentieth Century. This extended community has been critically undervalued relative to movements coming out of New York and southern California. Irving Marcus: Romance & Disaster is the first museum retrospective of this important, and yet overlooked, artist. The exhibition surveys more than 45 years of work; featured are his vibrant and intensely personal paintings exhibited alongside works on paper. Curator: Rachel Teagle, Founding Director September 27–December 30, 2018
