Presence: Selections from the Matthew and Iris Strauss Family Foundation Collection

Nov 05, 2015 – Jan 25, 2016


From a nineteenth-century ukiyo-e woodblock print to video documentation of a contemporary performance, the Matthew and Iris Strauss Family Foundation Collection comprises a compelling range of noteworthy international art. A thematic selection of the Foundation’s holdings is brought together for the San Diego community in Presence, the focus of which is images of women. Incorporating either the female figure itself or women’s apparel as surrogate for the female body, the works in the exhibition manifest a breadth of physical, psychological, social and political states of being. Exploring this diversity of female identity with a variety of media and from a global perspective, Presence features painting, printmaking, photography, installation, fiber art and video from Argentina, China, Britain, Italy, Japan, Norway, Pakistan, Sweden, and the United States.
