Byron Kim: Threshold 1990-2004

by: Anoka Faruqee, Eugenie Tsai, Kevin Consey
For the past decade, Byron Kim has maintained a steadfast commitment to exploring the potential for content in abstract painting. Kim's work reflects his attraction to the postwar tradition of monochromatic painting, exemplified by Ad Reinhardt's black paintings and Brice Marden's fields of color. While Kim incorporates the visual language of color and abstraction, he also addresses cultural and personal issues, positioning himself closely with many of his contemporaries, including Glenn Ligon and Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

Beauty Revealed: Images of Women in Qing Dynasty Chinese Painting

by: James Cahill, Chen Fongfong, Nancy Berliner, Sarah Handler, Julia White
Beauty Revealed: Images of Women in Qing Dynasty Chinese Painting brings together some of the world’s finest examples of meiren hua (paintings of beautiful women), a largely neglected and misunderstood genre of Chinese painting spanning the country’s last imperial dynasty (1644–1912). Often dismissed as decorative or misinterpreted as highbrow portraits of ladies, these enigmatic and relatively unexamined works are the subject of close scholarly scrutiny in this publication. The corresponding exhibition includes works from the collection of the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive as well as loans from the British Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as a number of other American museums and private collections in England, Sweden and France.

Everything Matters: Paul Kos, A Retrospective

by: Constance Lewallen, Berkeley Art Museum, Pacific Film Archive
Born in 1942, Paul Kos has been a highly influential artist in the Bay Area for well over three decades. In the late 1960s and early 1970s he was one of the major figures on the early Conceptual art scene, notable especially for his early experimental video works and seemingly simple but technically innovative sculptural installations, which generally featured evocative audio or video components. He was one of the first to incorporate video into interactive installations. The artist's best-known work is arguably the sublime “Chartres Bleu,” a 1986 video installation that re-creates in full scale a stained-glass window from the Chartres cathedral in France.
