For their newest exhibition opening this Saturday at San Francisco’s DeYoung Museum, it is going to be a feature of artists, whose works maps out certain places, literally.
The exhibition Mapping the Contemporary Print: Selections from the Anderson Gallery, consist of works that were drawn from the Anderson Graphic Arts Collection at the Fine Arts Museums, each expressing an interest in mapping the outside world, both physical and metaphysical.
According to the DeYoung Museum website, this will be considered an opportunity for patrons to have themselves to be challenged with the consideration of alternative modes of both seeing and understanding spaces, in which are in themselves subject to continual reformation. And with the works ranging everything from blurring abstract to undefined spaces, it will truly be a demonstration of how artists best represent the world as he or she see it.
And speaking of artists, the exhibition will feature some of the most famous and legendary artists including David Hockney, Wayne Thiebaud, and Richard Diebenkorn. One sample of what is to be expected in this exhibition can be seen on the museum’s website at deyoung.famsf.org, featuring a work by Edward Ruscha, and a earthtone colored print resembling a map of the Pacific Coast Highway.
