Five Tables of Earth, Rock, Sand, and Dirt

Exhibit - Multimedia | August 1 | 4-7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

If the meek shall inherit the earth, our study center collections show what a grand—also rocky, sandy, and dirty—inheritance this might be. On view this session: the poster for Walter De Maria’s iconic installation The New York Earth Room; a stunning photograph of sand dunes by Ansel Adams; Robert Watts’s Fluxus kit Rocks Marked by Weight; James Ensor’s scabrous etching Peste dessous, peste dessus, peste partout (Pollution Under, Pollution Over, Pollution All Around); Barbara Bloom’s conceptual puzzle THOUGHTS ABOUT: the difficulty in extracting iron from Dutch sand and other things for Alice Hutchins; and more!
