Description

February 16 - May 5, 2018. Opening reception on February 17th, 5pm - 8pm

'Stories' features photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia's 'A Storybook Life' (1978-1999) and writer and performer Constance DeJong's 'Radios' (2015-2017). Through images, audio, and objects, the artists' fragmented narratives invite viewers to become an active part of storytelling.

DiCorcia's 'A Storybook Life' creates a dreamland straddling documentary and staged photography through tableaus of domestic situations using friends and family as models. The work is arranged in a particular, nonlinear order, with only four complete sets in existence.

For 'Radios,' DeJong presents a set of vintage radios simultaneously playing intimate and disarming narratives. She says: "The speaking voice disconnected from a body can invoke intense listening, a kind of attention like no other."

'Stories' is curated by Kevin Moore.

Also showing the 'Dilexi Series,' a collection of radical television programs created by a host of artists including Julian Beck, Walter De Maria, Kenneth Dewey, Robert Frank, Anna Halprin, Phil Makanna, Robert Nelson, Yvonne Rainer, Terry Riley and Arlo Acton, Edwin Schlossberg, Andy Warhol, William Wiley, and Frank Zappa. Co-presented with the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and curated by Steve Seid. Playing daily in MFA's media room.
