Of Dogs and Other People: The Art of Roy De Forest

Roy De Forest's vibrant works present playful visions that take us on a trip into alternative realities. In April 2017, the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) will present Of Dogs and Other People: The Art of Roy De Forest, an exhibition designed to simulate an adventurous exploration of the artist's dream-like and sometimes humorous works. Large, colorful paintings and sculptures spanning De Forest's career will provide visitors the opportunity to navigate their own journeys by exploring vistas and portals into imaginative worls. Listening stations throughout the exhibition will allow visitors to drift deeper into individuals works, led by an array of exhibition-related character guides ranging from dog trainers to art historians and ship captains. A hands-on space will provide a social experience and allow visitors to manipulate and engage with textured, tactile amterials and shapes inspired by De Forest's artwork.

More details about the exhibition can be found in the following press release
