The mythical ima gery of the American West\, especially when considered from some European p erspectives\, conjures an idealized fiction rich with a sort of Technicolor endlessness. The architectonic idea of this vastness can inspire and confu se by complicating perceptions of scale and possibility. For the exhibition Small Museum for the American Metaphor\, the gallery is divided i nto &ldquo\;rooms&rdquo\; with sheer drapes\, creating a cabinet of curiosi ties in which one discovers a variety of artworks\, architectural models\, drawings and other objects\, presented in a way that blurs the distinction between object and representation. The metaphor is the foundation for an ar chitecture that collapses different scales\, celebrates the fiction of the &ldquo\;wide open\,&rdquo\; and seeks to reinterpret the world as a giganti c interior.

\n

The exhibi tion includes work by a mix of influential and emerging artists and designe rs\, such as John Baldessari\, Koenraad Dedobbeleer\, Jos de Gruyter &\; Harald Thys\, Stefano Graziani\, Rita McBride\, Valé\;rie Mannaerts\ , Jonathan Muecke\, Jonathan Olivares\, Manfred Pernice\, Bas Princen\, Ed Ruscha\, Ettore Sottsass\, Michaë\;l Van den Abeele\, Pieter Vermeersch \, Peter Wä\;chtler and Christopher Williams\, as well as models of pas t and present architectures of the "big box.&rdquo\;

In celebration of the return o f Ramesses II to the Museum after an extended loan\, Out of Eg ypt will spotlight this important portrait of Egypt&rsquo\;s most powe rful pharaoh by placing it within its broader historic and artistic context s. This finely carved quartzite sculpture was purchased by the Museum in 19 49 and was displayed here for four decades before being loaned to the San A ntonio Museum of Art. The statue depicts the pharaoh in the classic stridin g pose and wearing the typical shendyt (pleated linen kilt) and nemes (striped\, folded headcloth). His name and royal titles are in scribed in hieroglyphs on his belt buckle and on the supporting back pillar : &ldquo\;Ramesses\, beloved of Amun&hellip\;The Victorious Bull&hellip\;Ki ng of Upper and Lower Egypt&hellip\;The son of Ra...&rdquo\; \;

\n

Ramesses II\, known as &ldquo\;Ramesses the Great\,&rdquo\; ruled Egypt for 67 years (1279-1212 BCE) and was responsibl e for an extensive building program which remade the face of Egypt and incl uded numerous temples at sites such as Luxor\, Karnak\, Abydos\, Thebes\, a nd others. \;He erected many hundreds of carved images of himself\, the most famous being the colossal seated statues at the Great Temple of Abu S imbel in Nubia.

\n

The return of Ram esses II to San Diego offers an opportunity to illustrate the canonic properties of Egyptian royal portraiture as well as demonstrate the seminal influence of Egyptian sculpture on the art of the Greeks\, and later\, thr ough the conquests of Alexander the Great\, on sculpture in the Gandharan r egion of northwest Pakistan. To illustrate this influence\, two sculptures will be exhibited with Ramesses II: Torso of Herakles\, a 2nd century Roman marble copy of a famous Greek bronze of the 4th century BC loaned by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art\, and Standing Bodhisa ttva\, a 3rd century Gandharan sculpture that has been in the Muse um&rsquo\;s collection since 1980.

For five decades\, Jack Whitten (b. 1939\, Bessemer\, AL) has kept time through his innovativ e studio process. In his canvases\, he explores the possibilities of paint\ , the role of the artist\, and the allure of material essence. As a child o f the segregated south\, he bears witness to expressions of evil and the re silience of the human spirit. As a diligent formalist\, Whitten explores an d exploits the newest acrylic and dry pigment media\, the register of the i mage\, and the edge of the canvas. As the New York artist\, schooled in the sixties and maturing in the seventies\, he balances on the fulcrum of the century that was and the century to come. He is an artist of his moment due precisely to his respect for the past and commitment to the present. Whitt en creates in the moment in order to harness the essence of matter. From hi s first spectral canvases\, as a graphic trace of a haunted soul\, to his r ecent app for Obama\, a key for complex\, contemporary life\, Whitten&rsquo \;s poetic and physically compelling compositions capture what is needed\, what is left\, what is remembered\, and what is next. Jack Whitten: Fiv e Decades of Painting surveys this enduring artist&rsquo\;s career wit h approximately 60 canvasses from the mid-1960s to the present.

\n

Jack Whitten: Five Decades of Painting is or ganized by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and made possible by ge nerous lead underwriting support from Dr. Paul Jacobs\, and presenting corp orate sponsorship from RBC Wealth Management. Additional funding has been p rovided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts\, the National En dowment for the Arts\, and proceeds from the 2014 Biennial Art Auction.

We&rsquo\;ve all done it. We&r squo\;ve sat at the bar\, drinking a beer and doodled on a coaster.

\n

But most of us aren&rsquo\;t the extremely s killed painters\, illustrators\, animators\, tattooists\, sculptors or coll age artists that are featured in this exhibition that takes a love of craft brewing and elevates it to high art.

\n

The folks behind L.A. Beer Week produced a custom canvas for some of our f avorite gallery folks to do what they do best\, and transform a 4&Prime\; t ondo coaster into museum worthy exhibition pieces.

\n

Last year\, we dotted our walls with over 700 tiny masterpiec es\, and this year we&rsquo\;re looking to outdo ourelves. The rules are si mple: Each coaster must be a solitary work (though it&rsquo\;s fine if seve ral pieces work together contextually)\, and they must be priced $250 or le ss. There is no bottom\, so some coasters might even be free!

\n

This isn&rsquo\;t just the same\, old crop of folk s you see in every group show across town. There are a lot of participants who we quite frankly can&rsquo\;t believe we got to participate. Maybe it&r squo\;s because we kept the rules simple: We told them to do whatever they wanted. Whether you love beer or don&rsquo\;t\, the art will blow your mind .

\n

And just like last year\, there wil l be some amazing beer here\, too!

Harold Fox ha s been in retirement for quite a few years now\, but you&rsquo\;d never kno w it from his output. His paintings are vivid reminiscences of a bygone era . If Charles Bukowski used paintbrushes instead of a typew riter\, the outcome might look something like this. But there&rsquo\;s also a bit of Steinbeck and Hemingway and a whole lot of Nightmare Alley. Like a skid row Robert Williams\, or a sideshow Frank Cassara\, Fox&rsquo\;s work is both cartooned\, but realis tic\, with the types of surrealist flourishes that would make Dali< /strong> proud. Fox&rsquo\;s is a dark\, shadowy world of second rate carni vals\, low rent flophouses and dustbowl trailer parks filled with ornery hu stlers\, scheming grifters\, and Machiavellian femmes fatales\, as witnesse d by a support cast of affable hobos and menacing clowns.

\n

When you find an artist whose collector base is compos ed mostly of other artists\, you know you&rsquo\;re onto something. And it& rsquo\;s not enough that his paintings are the cat&rsquo\;s pajamas\, he al so custom carves his own frames. The resultant tramp art aesthetic adds a w hole other dimensionality to the work\, as each frame seems predestined for the piece that occupies it.
