“The Keeper” is an exhibition dedicated to the act of preserving objects, artworks, and images, and to the passions that inspire this undertaking. A reflection on the impulse to save both the most precious and the apparently valueless, it brings together a variety of imaginary museums, personal collections, and unusual assemblages, revealing the devotion with which artists, collectors, scholars, and hoarders have created sanctuaries for endangered images and artifacts."
At MoMA, more difficult work to describe,"BRUCE CONNER: IT’S ALL TRUE"
The first complete retrospective of Bruce Conner’s 50-year career brings together over 250 works, from rarely shown paintings, collages, and assemblages to photographs and groundbreaking films. And Teiji Furuhashi: "Lovers."
Conner's work is definitely worth seeing, but be warned, it is very "California."
