The words Teach Art in black with black border
Stephen Kaltenbach, Teach Art, Artforum ad, 1969


February 6 - May 18, 2024

Is teaching art? Artist Stephen Kaltenbach thinks so. Teach Art explores the role of pedagogy within an artist’s conceptual art practice. Re-presenting the anonymous room installation, The Window, which premiered at the Else Gallery in 1981, along with a selection of paintings, drawings, sculptures and archive materials, the exhibition highlights “teaching moments” from Kaltenbach’s 30-year career at Sacramento State.

Feminist Wit in 1970s Bay Area Art

February 6 - April 13, 2024

She Laughs Back is serious fun. Showcasing nearly a hundred narrative artworks by nineteen women artists, the exhibition provokes laughter, smiles, and raised eyebrows. However, this art was not made for fun alone. Working in the politicized 1970s Bay Area region, the artists in She Laughs Back deployed humor subversively to advance women’s personal and political liberation.

Curated by Elaine O'Brien.
