DESCRIPTION

Join us for two panel discussions in conjunction with State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970. In Women, Work, Role-Playing, chaired by Associate Professor Julia Bryan-Wilson (UC Berkeley), artists Lynn Hershman, Suzanne Lacy, and Bonnie Sherk and art historian Moira Roth consider how feminist artists in the 1970s practiced, embodied, and performed various types of gendered labor. In Contemporary Practices, artists Anne Walsh and Mario Garcia Torres, curators Jens Hoffmann and Rudolf Frieling, and exhibition curators Constance M. Lewallen and Karen Moss explore the influence of the radical art of the late 1960s and early 1970s on contemporary art practices. Preceded by a guided tour at 1:00.

Have you ever heard the sound of ice melting? State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970, part of Pacific Standard Time, offers an in-depth exploration of Conceptual art made by both Northern and Southern California artists during a pivotal period in contemporary art. The more than 150 works of art on display—many rarely seen or newly discovered—are organized by themes, such as the street, the body, politics, private/public space, and language/wordplay, that elucidate this dynamic era in our history and foreshadow the concerns of young artists working today.
