Last night’s opening reception for Paul Kos’ retrospective, at the Berkeley Art Museum brought out a big crowd to honor this respected artist’s artist and SFAI faculty member. Timeless pieces such as “rEVOLUTION: Notes for the invasion: mar mar march” (1972 - 73) have particular resonance for us now, and the timing of this show makes one marvel at the uncanny synchronicity of current events and exhibition scheduling. Following the Fred Wilson show, senior curator Connie Lewallen and the Berkeley Art Museum raise the bar for relevant museum exhibitions with these two stunning mid career retrospectives. Through July 20, 2003.
