Event description

Description

McEvoy Foundation for the Arts presents Ellen Berkenblit and Sarah Braman in conversation with curator Kevin Moore on Saturday, February 9, 3:30 – 5pm. Seating is limited and available by reservation. The opening reception for True Blue Mirror: Ellen Berkenblit and Sarah Braman, an exhibition of works from the McEvoy Family Collection, follows the conversation.

In this Bay Area premiere exhibition for these two New York-based artists, Moore stages a theatrical dialogue between the pictorial calligraphy of Berkenblit’s gestural, semi-abstract paintings and the vernacular materials of Braman’s blocky, quasi-mystical sculptures and environments. Juxtaposing these two bodies of work reveals correspondences in line, color, and composition, yet differences in scale and dimensionality, as each is reflected and refracted through the vision of the other.

Working together with Moore, the artists have chosen a complement of photographic works from the Collection to expand the exhibition. Over the course of the conversation, the artists will share insights into their unique methods and practices and their experiences collaborating on the exhibition at MFA.

Admission is free.
