RICHARD DIEBENKORN: THE BERKELEY YEARS, 1953-1966
Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years, 1953-1966
10/26/13 – 02/16/14 – Annenberg Wing
Palm Springs Art Museum
Richard Diebenkorn achieved national and international acclaim during his lifetime and is considered one of California’s finest 20th century artists. His work has been the subject of several retrospective exhibitions, numerous smaller exhibitions, and many articles and critical reviews. This exhibition will be the first to examine the productive period between 1953 to 1966 while Diebenkorn and his family lived in Berkeley, California. It was a remarkable period of exploration and innovation in his art marked by vivid abstract landscapes characterizing the rich, natural conditions of the Bay Area, followed by a sudden shift to a representational style that played a leading role in the Bay Area Figurative Movement, which finally gave way again to abstraction after the artist’s move to southern California in 1966.

Glass as a fine art material is relatively new and used by a wide range of extraordinarily talented artists from throughout the world. Its remarkable physical properties result in a medium of astounding aesthetic expression. From the spontaneous to the methodical, artists’ creative ideas range from narrative to conceptual, explore current art movements, or innovatively express personal vision. Drawn from the museum’s permanent collection and private collections, this exhibition includes works by significant artists who have contributed to the notion that glass has broken through the aesthetic barrier between craft and fine art.
Contemporary Works from the Permanent Collection
The museum’s contemporary galleries are installed with a set of themes that integrate significant works from the gifts and promised works from Donna and Cargill MacMillan, Jr. with recent loans. Artists in this collection include Louise Bourgeois, Ralph Goings, Mona Hatoum, Donald Judd, Anish Kapoor, Rachel Lachowicz, Morris Louis, Max Neumann, Mimmo Paladino, Neo Rauch, Robert Rauschenberg, the Starn Brothers, Andy Warhol, and Andrea Zittel.
