Description

In a 1956 <em>ARTnews</em> article, critic Hubert Crehan asked “Is There a California School?” and answered with a resounding “No,” claiming that the Abstract Expressionist school around the California School of Fine Arts (now SFAI) was too disparate and incoherent to constitute a “school.” The same year, Richard Diebenkorn actually made a case for a San Francisco School of Figuration in a symposium assembled at the Oakland Art Museum.

In conjunction with the Walter and McBean Galleries exhibition <em>ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND</em> (September 12–December 14), Renny Pritikin, former chief curator at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and Natasha Boas, curator of <em>ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND</em>, will reproduce the historic symposium posing an updated question for 2013: <em>Mission School: Yes or No?</em> The panel aims to consider how defining a “school” or art movement affects history, art-making, and localism.
