This Friday at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA), is a new exhibition courtesy of the museum’s MATRIX 253 program.
This upcoming exhibition features the work of Will Rogan, whose is known for multifaceted projects, that often reflects on prosaic manifestations of time’s passages identified in his local environs, which could be based on anything from passing a mural in Berkeley, or drinking his coffee from his studio. In his first solo exhibition in a museum, Rogan will present a new body of work, which will explore various time scales (past, present, and future), displayed in a reversed order or backward motion.
This exhibiton features a conceptual video that was in collaboration with his brother, as well as sculptures and photographs all of which exhibit an inverted state. Some examples include a gelatin silver print of a ruler made by Rogan’s daughter (titled Scout’s Ruler), and a sculpture of a plastic camera from Time magazine, which possesses antipodal features.
In a little information about Will Rogan, he is a graduate of UC Berkeley and has exhibited both locally and internationally. Since 2007, he was also the coeditor of THE THING quarterly with artist Jonn Herschend, which produced projects from artists and writers including Trisha Donnelly and Trevor Paglen. Rogan’s exhibition is on view until June 29th.
