From September 17 through October 17, 2014, the Worth Ryder Art Gallery at the University of California at Berkeley will present Scores for a Room: David Haxton and Jim Melchert. Guest curated by Tanya Zimbardo, Assistant Curator of Media Arts at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the exhibition brings together for the first time historic works by these two artists, exploring their different approaches to the description of space through structured activity performed for the camera. Both renowned artists turned to the projected image in the seventies, highlighting the shifting awareness of spatial perception in the interaction between illusionistic filmed space and a physical location.
The U.C. Berkeley Art Alumni Group was formed to help promote the improvement and esteem of UC Berkeley's Art Practice Department, and the art community surrounding it. Alumni members benefit from educational and professional opportunities, social activities, and continued community support.
