(American, b. 1938)
from 10, Artist as Catalyst
Major revolutions in the art world during the twentieth century involved the expansion of non-traditional materials for image making, the move by marginalized artists from the borders into the mainstream, and the development of abstraction as an aesthetic principle. Revolutionary Visions featured works by prominent artists who have been at the forefront of these paradigm shifts, such as Nam June Paik, whose Anten-nalope was one of the highlights of the show. Yellow Peril, 1992, a serigraph by Ben Sakoguchi (American, b. 1938) expressed the ironies and complexities of racial discrimination in the context of twentieth-century, while Jun Kaneko’s Egyptian King and Egyptian Queen, lent by First National Bank & Trust Company, Columbia, Mo., represented the theme of abstraction.
