Review on KQED Blog


"Pairings of Polarities" culls from over four decades of Sonya Rapoport's artistic production. Active in the Bay Area art scene since the 1950s, Rapoport began exploring systems of information in the emerging age of new media during the early 1970s. Her drawings and collages from this period use the found printed detritus of early computer databases as a backdrop, and represent her intuitive responses to the wealth of information about anthropology, natural sciences and other areas of research signified by the underlying code. Interactive installations and computer-based works from the 1980s invite viewers to question their social relationship to technology, long before the advent of "web 2.0." Now in her 80s, Rapoport continues to reinvent her work, exploring new modes of expression such as blogs to apply her conceptual systems thinking to current political and world events.
