04/13/2024

Despite being central to the development and formation of Minimalism, Robert Mangold has always distinguished himself from his peers through his unwavering preference for irregularity over symmetry. His paintings frequently juxtapose the edges of a canvas against lines drawn on its surface.

In ๐˜š๐˜ฒ๐˜ถ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ž๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข ๐˜™๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ (1974), Mangold reorients a rectangular canvas as a diamond. At first glance, the square within the orange canvas appears to fit perfectly in the center, with each corner meeting the diamond's sides. However, closer inspection reveals the square's incompatibility and the rectangle's asymmetry, as the bottom right corner of the square never quite makes contact with the diamond's lower right edge.

A couple weeks ago, MCASD Educators visited Casa Familiar for a bilingual (English and Spanish) art discussion and workshop on installation art, onsite specific works, and the recontextualization of objects.

Inspired by Nancy Rubinโ€™s ๐˜—๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜—๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต (2006) from MCASDโ€™s Collection, participants created pop-up cards incorporating color balance, composition, shapes, cutting techniques, and construction techniques.

For many of the participants, this was their first time engaging with contemporary art, yet they felt stimulated by the artmaking and especially loved the group reflection on their creative process and experience at the end of the program.

We canโ€™t wait to see our friends again in May for another workshop!

This program was part of Reflections, showing the power of creative aging.

The final artist we are featuring for our Womenโ€™s History Month series is Jay Lynn Gomez.

Gomez often paints images of caregivers, gardeners, and housekeepers, referencing her personal history as a live-in caregiver and the daughter of working-class Mexican immigrants. By depicting faceless workers, her collages and paintings underscore the complexity of socioeconomic difference and class dynamics. In ๐˜•๐˜ฐ ๐˜š๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฉ (2013), Gomez creates a powerful interruption of the archetypal imagery of Southern California by revealing lived realities of the overlooked immigrant workforce.

Your visionary support shapes cultural narratives at the Museum, allowing us to continue acquiring and presenting artwork by women.

Currently, a third of artists on permanent view are women-identifying โ€“ thatโ€™s nearly twice the national average.

At MCASD, we also acknowledge that special exhibitions can be an opportunity to tell new stories and create new occasions for learning. Thatโ€™s why since 2021, we have presented back-to-back showcases of trailblazing female artists, such as Yolanda Lรณpez (1942-2021), Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002), Alexis Smith (1949-2024), and Celia Alvarez Muรฑoz (b. 1937).

About Christopher Cozier

Itโ€™s Womenโ€™s History Month - can you name a female artist? Hereโ€™s one from MCASDโ€™s Collection: Yayoi Kusama.

Kusama is celebrated for her patterned objects and installations that seem to proliferate endlessly. Her artistic motivations were seen as idiosyncratic within the dominant artistic circles of the 1960s, and as an Asian woman artist she was doubly an outlier. Nonetheless, she was at the forefront of major artistic developments of the day and influenced the work of many artists.

With visionary supporters like you, MCASD continues our commitment to amplifying women artistsโ€™ unique perspectives, struggles, and innovations in various artistic mediums.

Since 2021, MCASD has presented a series of critically successful solo exhibitions of four trailblazing female artists, including Yolanda Lรณpez (1942-2021), Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002), Alexis Smith (1949-2024), and Celia Alvarez Muรฑoz (b. 1937).

Do you recognize this artist from our Collection? This Womenโ€™s History Month, celebrate artist Tschabalala Self.

Self's collaged fabric paintings depict powerful, jubilant Black women. These figures provide a counterpoint to the often reductive representations of the Black female body that circulate in contemporary culture. By piecing together scraps of recycled fabric, she reconstitutes disjointed bodies to generate animated, iconic female figures whose presence is much larger than the sum of their parts.

Personal and global histories intertwine in Doris Bittar's painting. The composition references family photographs from her childhood in Lebanon, prior to its civil war, and the artist's immigration to the United States. The domestic scenes are veiled by patterns, which recall cultural motifs of fabric, decor, and architecture.

With your visionary support, MCASD can continue exhibiting works by women, offering its audiences access to histories that spark inspiration and insight.

For the past three years, MCASD in La Jolla has showcased the artwork of emerging women artists of color in special exhibitions, including Carmen Argote (b. 1981), Griselda Rosas (b. 1977), and Kelly Akashi (b. 1984).

With a focus on the work of underexplored women artists, MCASD invites visitors to see themselves reflected in art in ways that they might not have elsewhere.
