Art and politics, exhibitions in California


This video is called ARTIST IN EXILE/VICTOR CARTAGENA.

From Susan Platt’s blog in the USA:

This is an installation by Victor Cartagena about The disappeared in El Salvador. He is using photographs that he found in a passport photo shop that were never picked up. They are not necessarily the same people who were disappeared by the military regime, they evoke the disappearance of individuals.

More to come on this stunning and provocative exhibition Prints Byte at SOmARts Cultural Center in San Francisco.

From ART FOR A CHANGE blog, also in the USA:

Millard Sheets: The Early Years (1926-1944), on display at the Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) through May 30, 2010, is an important exhibit of works by a leading California exponent of the “American Scene” painters, those artists given to documenting ordinary Americans going about their everyday lives.
