Lucinda Barnes and Lawrence Rinder on Irene Pijoan

Composed of intricately designed cutouts on paper and featuring beautiful, organic silhouettes cascading down the wall, Irene Pijoan's Kick Count Chart (1994) immediately impresses the viewer upon entering Gallery 6. This work in the BAM collection was the topic of an informal conversation between Lucinda Barnes, Associate Director for Art, Film, and Programs, and former BAM curator Lawrence Rinder. Pijoan, who died in August 2004, was an internationally exhibited artist known for her striking mixed-media works combining blocks of color, organic shapes, text, and autobiographical imagery. From 1983 to 2004 she taught at the San Francisco Art Institute, where she was an associate professor of drawing and painting.

Lawrence Rinder is dean of graduate studies at California College of the Arts. He was formerly curator of contemporary art at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and founding director of the CCA Wattis Institute. From 1988 to 1998, Rinder was curator of the MATRIX Program and curator of twentieth-century art at BAM/PFA.
