Cross Section: Recent Acquisitions

Mills College Art Museum, Oakland
July 16th-August 31st, Opening, Wednesday July 16th, 6-8pm

Cross Section: Recent Acquisitions showcases recently acquired pieces in dialogue with artwork from MCAM’s permanent collection. Artists include Cecily Brown, Judy Chicago, Olafur Eliasson, Mika Rottenberg, Allison Smith, Shinique Smith, Alec Soth, Carrie Mae Weems, Pae White, Fred Wilson and many more.

A new iteration for the paper rocks from A Granite Note (2013), a three-channel video installation recently shown at Mills College Art Museum in The Shape of a Pocket, Anne Colvin and Margaret Tait will be presented in Cross Section. In the original installation the rocks were placed behind the film screens and lit with pink theatre lights, so the configuration has changed. I like the fact that these rocks can exist on their own within different contexts–in this case with 19th and early 20th century Californian photographers–leading to new and unexpected experiences.

Mills College Art Museum collection

9 May 2014 // Filed under Latest

A Granite Note, 2013 (three-channel video installation and paper rock sculptures) is now part of the Mills College Art Museum collection. This is a unique collection with significant holdings of prints and drawings, photography, ceramics, textiles, Native American basketry, and early 20th-century California painting. Highlights for me include works by artists such as László Moholy-Nagy, Man Ray, Imogen Cunningham and Jay DeFeo.
