“Nineteen Nineteen”
Travel back a hundred years as the Huntington Library marks its centennial with an in-depth examination of the year 1919. The same year that the paperwork was inked to turn the Huntington’s San Marino estate into a public institution, the U.S. was dealing with the fallout of World War I, Halley’s Comet came to visit, the suffragist movement reached a pivotal turning point and the Red Car was rolling all over town—all of which are represented here through books, posters, photos and all sorts of other ephemera.

 

The Body, The Object, The Other
Craft Contemporary’s second clay biennial examines contemporary ceramic practices that use the human figure as the starting point for material and conceptual experimentation. The exhibition presents works from both emerging and established artists that actively challenge traditional notions of representation. Works in the exhibition include sculptural objects, site-specific installations, and performative works.
