As part of the Magnes WINDOWS series, the latest installation is by Israeli-born, Berkeley-living artist Naomie Kremer.
The WINDOWS series was launched to use the Magnes new facility to positive effect, namely as public art to be viewed at night: to bring more cultural content to downtown Berkeley and in the evenings when the street traffic is less -- to light up the night.
Kremer's opening was this evening and we had a really nice turn out, including important local patrons of the arts, collectors etc. Here pictured are Jeff and Jane Green, Penny Cooper (one of the Bay Area's finest collections, focused primarily on women artists with her wife Rena Rosenwasser).
Here Naomie introduces her video piece on Bluebeard's Castle, by Bela Bartok.
