Member Preview Night – Friday, November 9, 2018
Gustavo Pérez’s work is a mixture of theme, development and intuition. The works that result are like a logbook of where he has been and where he is now in his relationship to clay. The work presented for MCD will be an installation of recent work wherein Pérez’s creative process will become visible. The installation presents several different series of work, marking lines in Pérez’s development. Some cycles grow organically, and others contradict. By presenting the series together, both individual pieces and the relationships between them become evident.
Gustavo Pérez: Self Portrait in Black and White is part of the museum’s Visible Transparency Project, which invites visitors to witness the behind-the-scenes exhibition installation. Pérez’s installation will take place during regular museum hours Tuesday, November 6th through Thursday, November 8th.
Guest Curator: Mayer Shacter
Additional support for Self Portrait in Black and White is provided by the Consulate of Mexico in San Francisco and Janet and Victor Schachter.
