KEYNOTE: Created for the renowned Orange County Museum of Art’s 2010 California Biennial, this exhibition catalogue features forty-five contemporary California-based artists and collectives in all their rich diversity.
The works shown here represent remarkable developments in contemporary art, including drawing and works on paper, film and video, installation, painting, performance and dance, photography, sculpture, and text-based work. This exhibition and catalogue continue the museum’s four-decade history of identifying new talent on the verge of national and international recognition. “California is an inimitable and variegated environment in which to work as an artist,” states Sarah C. Bancroft, the exhibition’s curator. “The 2010 presentation champions emerging artists, celebrates a selection of more established practitioners, and shares a unique vision of the vibrant practices and the disparate media found in the state today.” This catalogue offers four-page entries for each artist, featuring reproductions of their works, an extensive interview, and biographical material.
Sarah C. Bancroft is Curator at the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, California.
