Reception for Exhibitions David Park: Personal Perspectives and The Human Spirit: Contemporary Figuration as an Expression of Humanism

In the South Gallery

DAVID PARK: PERSONAL PERSPECTIVES

Celebrating its 80th Anniversary, the Art Center will present companion exhibitions that trace the human figure as vehicle in Bay Area art.  Scheduled for March 19 – May 22, 2016, the exhibitions David Park: Personal Perspectives and The Human Spirit with accompanying programming and catalog will focus on the historical and aesthetic development of Bay Area figurative art over the past 60 years.

In the Main and West Galleries

THE HUMAN SPIRIT: CONTEMPORARY FIGURATION AS AN EXPRESSION OF HUMANISM

Bridging the Art Center’s historical role in presenting formative exhibitions of the in the 1950s, The Human Spirit will extend our consideration of legacy to the work of over 20 contemporary Bay Area artists who have expanded the figurative art tradition through paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and performance. This survey will include the work of Elmer Bischoff, Joan Brown, Terry St. John, Christopher Brown, Charles Garabedian, and Enrique Chagoya. Following a highly personal path with exuberant use of materials and iconography, these artists have forged visual language built on vocabularies including folk, medieval, aboriginal, and outsider art.
