It has been fantastic seeing all the people installing their HUMAN NATURE artworks! Loved seeing the Roe v. Wade lightbox at the home of a collector with works by Kiki Smith, Nan Goldin, and Cy Twombly right near it. Pinch me.
Our experiments in giving virtual tours of the HUMAN NATURE exhibit are going great. Next Zoom tour that I will lead is tomorrow, March 8 11am-12pm PT/2pm ET for International Women's Day. Sign up here. We've heard your requests about doing one at night, so we also have one April 18 5pm PT/8pm ET. RSVP here.
Now on to the offerings in this month’s newsletter:
I hope you will join me at the benefit for the Center for Domestic Peace with a keynote by Tanya Selvaratnam on May 12, and the annual Berkley's Art Museum fundraiser honoring Cauleen Smith and Catherine Wagner on May 6. I contributed an artwork to the June 6 fundraising auction for Headlands Center for the Arts, an amazing organization where I was artist-in-residence.
Artist Randy Coloksy, a fantastic artist whom I had the pleasure of working with, has a survey of his whole 35 year art practice coming out. The pre-order just went up. I just bought mine. Please join me in getting a copy and supporting this art book campaign.
Artists Nellie King Solomon and her mom Barbara Stauffacher Solomon have a show at MarinMOCA. And Tamsin Smith has a show at Upper Market Gallery. The National Women's History Museum in DC is opening their exhibit We Who Believe in Freedom: Black Feminist DC on March 29. I will be there in DC. Also be sure to check out work by my niece Maya Man at Bitforms Gallery in NYC.
It is my great joy to interview wonderful women authors for their books coming this next month at Book Passage: Lauren Schiller and Hadley Dynak for their book It's a Good Day to Change the World; Susan Magsamen and Ivy Ross for their book Your Brain on Art; and one of my best friends, Rachel Lehmann-Haupt, for her book Reconceptions. Details below.
Marin people, be sure to check out out a great vintage store Ruse Vintage, and let me know if you have any leads on a studio space in Sausalito that's around 700 sq. feet with good light.
More details on all above and more to taste below. Here's to the trees starting to flower.
