Silhouettes and Conversations: Articulating a Communal Vision

Alexandra Blum will trace silhouettes of visitors while listening to and recording their descriptions of artworks that are particularly meaningful to them in the permanent collection of the de Young. These silhouettes and the narrated descriptions of the work will form the basis of a mixed-media studio project consisting of drawing, silkscreen, collage, and paint.

Over and Out Past the Lines: The Arts of Michael Horse and Kim Shuck

Beadwork, ledger art, and poetry are all social art forms, and all of them catalogue and describe the eras in which they are created. Michael and Kim intend to bring their voices and their communities into the Kimball Gallery and into an intense dialogue with one other and with the guests, structures, and collected works of the de Young Museum. Both artists actively seek reverence and irreverence in their process.

Artist-in-Residence Program at the de Young: Beth Grossman, Tracing History

July 6, 2007July 29, 2007

Beth Grossman

Artist Beth Grossman uses found objects to evoke a sense of wonder about history. Inspired by the origins of the de Young as collection of "treasures and curios" at the California Midwinter International Exhibition in 1894, Grossman considers the de Young's collection and the story that is told by the way it is exhibited.

Artist-in-Residence Program at the de Young: Joe Mangrum, Experiencing Ephemeral Art

August 1, 2007August 31, 2007

Joe Mangrum

Joe Mangrum transforms the Kimball Gallery into an alchemist's laboratory. He deconstructs consumer culture and modern idyllic attachments to explore our meanings of wealth. Drawing inspiration from the de Young's historical collection, Joe invites the public to take part in his allegorical journey, by gold-leafing various everyday and ritualized objects. A landscape will emerge serving as a mirror to our obsessions, connections and true desires
