Exhibitions: Wayne Thiebaud and "Day for Night"
Wayne Thiebaud: 1958-1968 — Rarely exhibited works from this formative decade of the artist’s career, along with new, related scholarship. Thiebaud, of course, is our very own UC Davis professor emeritus, having joined the art faculty in 1960 — and one of Northern California’s best known and most accomplished artists.
Tacita Dean: Day for Night — This 16mm silent film comprises 20
photographs mirroring still-life works by Giorgio Morandi, the Italian modernist painter and printmaker whom Thiebaud has described as “an artist’s artist.” By looking at these objects in different light, the British artist Dean offers a new read of Morandi’s work.
