SOCAL | A Saturday in Pomona: Ceramics, Networking Lunch, and Artist Todd Gray!
January 25, 2020 | 10:30 am - 3:30 pm
Image: Todd Gray leading a tour of Todd Gray: Euclidean Gris Gris, September 2019.
Join ArtTable for an extraordinary day in Pomona with visits to the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA), the Pomona College Museum of Art, and the Williamson Gallery at Scripps College.
At AMOCA, Executive Director Beth Ann Gerstein will lead us on a tour of Julie Green: Flown Blue. Bringing together over 800 plates, platters, and dishware, the exhibition explores the artist’s longstanding engagement with secondhand porcelain and stoneware dishes, drawing from both the large-scale political works for which Green is acclaimed and more recent works interrogating societal gender biases and personal histories.
Following a self-pay group lunch at a restaurant nearby, acclaimed photographer, performance artist, and sculptor Todd Gray will conduct a walkthrough of TODD GRAY: Euclidean Gris Gris at the Pomona College Museum of Art. The exhibition consists of a site-specific wall drawing and an evolving selection of photographs from Gray’s ongoing artistic examination of the legacies of colonialism in Africa and Europe. Los Angeles-based Gray, whose work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions internationally including the Whitney Biennial 2019, is currently serving as artist-in-residence at the college.
At the Williamson Gallery, we will be treated to a preview of the 76th Scripps College Ceramic Annual: Duality and Context. The exhibition features work by eleven artists whose ceramics engage with and offer a variety of perspectives on the environment.
The schedule for the day will be as follows:
10:30 AM Meet at AMOCA for a tour of the Julie Green and other exhibitions on view with Beth Ann Gerstein.
12:00 PM Group self-pay lunch at a nearby restaurant.
1:30 PM Visit to Pomona College Museum of Art and exhibition walkthrough with Todd Gray.
3:00 PM Preview 76th Scripps College Ceramic Annual at the Williamson Gallery, Scripps College. For those who can stay, the Ceramic Annual Lecture with Garth Johnson, Curator of Ceramics at the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, New York, will be held at the Humanities Auditorium at Scripps at 4:00, followed by the opening, with live music and light refreshments, at the gallery, from 7:00 to 9:00.
Please note that yet another James Turrell Skyspace–Diving the Light, 2007–is less than a ten-minute walk away from both the Pomona Museum Art and the Williamson Gallery. We will make a stop when time permits!
