On Friday, March 23, 2018, Friends of RxArt members were invited to join curator Douglas Eklund for a private tour of “Before/On/After: William Wegman and California Conceptualism” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Just as RxArt was about to proudly unveil our project with William Wegman, this MET exhibition coincided with the artist’s recent gift of 174 short conceptual videos to the Museum. The selection of videos, made during the Wegman’s time in Southern California between 1970 and 1999, were accompanied by photographs and drawings by Wegman as well as some by his contemporaries such as John Baldessari, Vija Celmins, Ed Ruscha, and others.
Friends of RxArt members attend studio visits, annual events, including the RxArt PARTY and more throughout the year. To join, contact 212-260-8797 or Megan_Skidmore@rxart.net.
