Hauntology

Hauntology, Curators' Tour




August 24, 2010; 41 Minutes; Video

Artist and musician Scott Hewicker and Director of the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive Lawrence Rinder in conversation with Kevin Killian, guest programmer.

This exhibition marks the first time that a museum has presented works of visual art within the framework of hauntology. Works by Luc Tuymans, Paul Sietsema, Carrie Mae Weems, Bruce Conner, Robert Gutierrez, Diane Arbus, Travis Collinson, Paul Schiek, Arnold Kemp, and others form loose groups in which one can discern various thematic concentrations: the enigma of place and placelessness, memorial and longing, transitional beings, displacement and disappearance, demonic manifestations, auras, elegies of nature, and the translucency of the psyche.

Scott and Lawrence are co-curators of the exhibition, Hauntology. On display at BAM/PFA though December 5, 2010.
