Marion Gray: Within the Light
February 14–June 21 2015
The Oakland Museum of California presents 23 works by San Francisco-based photographer Marion Gray. Gray has spent four decades capturing performances, dance, and installations by some of the most significant artists in the Bay Area and beyond. The creative networks portrayed in the exhibition have fueled Gray’s life work as a photographer and, in turn, Gray’s images have contributed to the vitality of the scene. Including never-before-seen photographs, the exhibition covers the 1970s to the present, showcasing the work of artists including Barbara Hammer, The Harrisons, Sara Shelton Mann, Eiko + Koma, Joan Jonas, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Ann Hamilton, Marina Abramović, and more.
Opening in OMCA’s Gallery of California Art, the exhibition is the fourth in an ongoing series exploring contemporary topics in California through photography.
