This week (probably Friday) I plan to go over again to Paule Anglim Gallery which holds group exhibition of Beat Generation artists work (on view currently). My goal is to take some informal photographs and gather information for my new and still developing American Art course. These are the artists on exhibit: Title of exhibtion: Sight Vision Revisited, Artists: Bruce Conner ,Wallace Berman, Joan Brown, Jean Conner, Jay DeFeo, Wally Hedrick, Jess. The exhibtion is excellent and I look forward to my trip number 2. This is the press release from gallery website: Sight Vision Revisited September 8, 2009 – October 10, 2009″As a complement to its Bruce Conner exhibition, Gallery Paule Anglim is pleased to present a group of selected works by his friends and contemporaries in its Gallery II. Over the past 20 years the gallery has mounted the Sight Vision series of group shows. Featuring works by Wallace Berman, Joan Brown, Jean Conner, Jay DeFeo, Wally Hedrick, George Herms, Jess and others, the Sight Vision exhibitions focused on the spirit and special rapport of these California artists. Later to be known as ‘Beat Generation Artists’, they shared San Francisco houses, exhibition spaces and a bohemian underground of cross-pollinated ideas with writers, poets and musicians. New practices of fabrication and repurposing of thrown away materials characterized the work.
