The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will present free lectures in conjunction with "Disappearing--California, c. 1970: Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden, Jack Goldstein."

  • May 7: Exhibition curator Philipp Kaiser in conversation with Mary Sue Andersen Ader, owner of the Bas Jan Ader Estate and curator Helene Winer. For this special presentation, Kaiser, curator of "Disappearing--California, c. 1970: Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden, Jack Goldstein" is in conversation with Andersen Ader, the widow of Bas Jan Ader and owner of the Bas Jan Ader Estate, who as an artist herself filmed many of her husband's pieces; and Helene Winer, co-founder and curator of Metro Pictures Gallery in New York, who in the context of this exhibition worked with all three artists and was crucial for conceptualism in Southern California as the director of the Pomona Art Gallery in the early 1970s. "Disappearing--California, c. 1970" is an intriguing look at three of the most enigmatic and probing artists of the 1970s, bound by a special time and place that was primed for their radical and poetic explorations. Offering personal insight and investment in the premise of this exhibition, Kaiser, Andersen Ader, and Winer recount the early issues and occurrences of California conceptualism, offering a wonderful preview to a compelling exhibition.
  • May 23: Alexander Dumbadze is Associate Professor at George Washington University and Design. Dumbadze is the author of Bas Jan Ader: Death Is Elsewhere (University of Chicago Press, 2013) as well as co-editor and co-author of Contemporary Art: 1989 to the Present (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013). Dumbadze is currently writing Jack Goldstein: All Day Night Sky. His essays and criticism have been published in a variety of national and international publications. A recipient of a Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant, Dumbadze was a Visiting Professor of Art History at the Université Paris 8 Vincennes - Saint-Denis in 2012. He is also a co-founder and former president of the Society of Contemporary Art Historians.
