Artist Talk

This is How We Do It: Math Bass


Thursday, November 2, 2017
6:30 – 7 pm
Skirball Lobby

Kelly Taxter, Associate Curator, speaks with artist Math Bass about Math Bass: Crowd Rehearsal and the process of creating her site-specific installation for the Museum’s lobby. Part of her ongoing series Newz!, which she began in 2012, zigzags, smoke plumes, and architectural shapes collide on canvases and translate into sculptures that feel rooted in the language of advertising, yet indicate that something more personal and mysterious is at play. The installation will show traces of the symbols and ceremonies of her Jewish upbringing.
