> DESCRIPTION

Krowswork is very pleased to present Lowell Darling: This Is Your Life featuring videos, ephemera, and stories by this stalwart of the California conceptual art scene of the 1970s. Coinciding with the Pacific Standard Time exhibition State of Mind at the Berkeley Art Museum which includes several works by Darling, the show at Krowswork will focus on representative vignettes from Darling's entire career, including the eponymous "This Is Your Life" saga, Darling's 1978 run for governor against Jerry Brown, and his very popular Fat City School of Finds Art, which offered free Master's degrees and PhDs to art students and luminaries around the country. This exhibition will also screen for the first time the oft-cited but never shown 1973 interview-cum-performance with Darling by curator, publisher, and impresario Willoughby Sharp, co-founder of the influential Avalanche magazine. Lowell Darling: This Is Your Life celebrates this smart, meandering, and highly entertaining storytelling agit-propist, whose art and life, politics and morality, conversation and chance effortlessly intertwine as a captifying paean to the artist/citizen.
