Three Talented Artists Focus on One of the Most Historical Moments of California Art

Providing art for people of all ages, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth proudly presents "Disappearing-California, c. 1970: Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden, Jack Goldstein." This exhibition thematizes the many implications of disappearing in the early 1970s and presents the bodies of work of three prominent California artists in full scope.

These three artists shared a common interest in themes of disappearance and self-effacement, which manifested in works that were daring and often dangerous. Responding to the social and political circumstances of their time and the nascent field of feminist art, the artists used disappearing as a response to the anxiety of the 1970s. This major exhibition reveals a fascinating intersection between major figures at a critical turning point for Southern Californian art.

With more than 40 objects - films, photographs, slide installations, objects, records, paintings, and three immersive installations - across 13,000 square feet of exhibition space, Disappearing focuses on one of the most interesting historical moments of California art. A richly illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition and will include an essay by Philipp Kaiser.

“Disappearing – California, c. 1970” is curated by Philipp Kaiser and organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. We encourage you to check out this exhibit while you can!
