John Zorn Redbird 1995 w Agnes Martin Pace Palo Alto 9/18

That’s a prologue to this show, from 1995 although I was not feeling it until today. There’s also a museum or gallery of her work (with accents by Donald Judd) at University of New Mexico.

Pace show is as follows:
First presented in Palo Alto and then coming to New York, this major exhibition will bring together a selection of large-scale paintings by Agnes Martin alongside masterwork Navajo Chief Wearing Blankets. The first of its kind, the exhibition will narrate parallels between the exquisite design and craftsmanship of the blankets created by Navajo women throughout the 19th centuryand Martin’s approach to painting, both of which prize the power of balance and inspire a transcendental experience.

Opening Reception:
September 27, 4–7 PM

Not sure what this is, maybe paintings from 2000 showed next to their influences, maybe Navajo rugs from 1840s. Did I mention I sometimes wear a cuff by Navajo silversmith Cody Sanderson (although I admit that last time I saw City Manager for a few more weeks of Palo Alto for 10 years Jim Keene he was not, despite being former city manager of Flagstaff, AZ, wearing his punier silver cuff)
