Barbara Chase-Riboud: The Malcolm X Steles
BERKELEY, CALIRFORNIA, UNITED STATES  •  BAM/PFA Galleries  •  12 February - 27 April 2014
 
 
Barbara Chase-Riboud: The Malcolm X Steles features six major sculptures, including Confessions for Myself (1972) from the BAM/PFA collection; Peter Selz commissioned the work in conjunction with a 1973 solo exhibition that introduced Chase-Riboud’s work on the West Coast. The current exhibition also includes lyrical drawings from the 1960s that trace the development of the sculptures, as well as the Monument Drawings from 1996 and 1997. These recent drawings, which incorporate text and calligraphic gesture, invoke historical, cultural, and geographical associations, from Queen Sheba’s Monument at Addis Ababa to Man Ray’s The Enigma of Isidore Ducasse.

Mark Morris Dance Group: Acis and Galatea
BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES  •  Hertz Hall  •  25 - 27 April 2014
 

Mark Morris Dance Group: Acis and Galatea

Mark Morris Dance Group, and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra present their latest joint undertaking, the world premiere of a production featuring Mozart's brilliant arrangement of a Handel score. An epic love story from Ovid's Metamorphoses set along the pastoral banks of the Mediterranean, Acis and Galatea is performed in English by four vocalists and the Mark Morris Dance Group, joined by the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale. Handel finished the opera in 1739 and Mozart later arranged it in the classical style, expanding the instrumental colors of the score and adding his signature clarity of orchestration.
