OCMA has a rich history of showcasing modern and contemproray art for more than five decades.
At Sarkisian & Sarkisian's core is a long-overdue, California survey of video artist Peter Sarkisian (born 1965, Glendale, CA), and the artist's father, Paul Sarkisian (b. 1928, Chicago) with 22 video sculptures by Peter Sarkisian and nearly a dozen paintings by Paul Sarkisian, the exhibition hints at a comparison between the distinct approaches of two artists who happen to be father and son.
OCMA Chief Curator Dan Cameron will present a selection of artworks made between 1970 and 1989, which were acquired by the Orange County Museum of Art in the past three years.
The Avant-Garde Collection traces the museum’s acquisitions highlights across five decades, with a specific focus on the evolving definition of avant-garde during that period.
