Over sixty works from di Rosa’s permanent collection are included in Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times.
Gallery 1 contains an exhibition of collection works selected by authors Dodie Bellamy and Kevin Killian in response to the theme of surveillance. Presenting a range of works that speak to a sense of vulnerability, danger, and foreboding, their selections reveal the collection’s heightened relevancy amid the upheaval of a divided nation.
Situated in the hallway of Gallery 2 are selected works from the collection that speak directly to the themes of the nearby installations by Ala Ebtekar, Rigo 23, and Allison Smith. Works by Enrique Chagoya, Terri Garland, and Irving Norman—some created almost seventy years ago—draw out the historical and ongoing complexities of the topics and further emphasize the politically engaged nature of artists working in the Bay Area.
Note: the Residence Gallery and Sculpture Meadow are currently closed due to conservation efforts following the October 2017 wildfires.
