Tang Exhibition: "Fred Tomaselli" February 6 - June 6, 2010 This survey shows the trajectory of Tomaselli's career, from early experiments with photography and collage to recent paintings and prints that combine abstraction with allusions to current events.

[4/10 - 8/7] Opener 19: Los Carpinteros
Time: 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: Tang Teaching Museum: Wachenheim Gallery

Everyday things from domestic items to urban architecture permeate the work of Havana-based duo Los Carpinteros. Marco Castillo and Dagoberto Rodriguez's exquisitely crafted sculptures and drawings twist these reco'nizable objects into surreal amalgamations-a bed in the shape of a roller coaster or a building with drawers for windows-that beg us to re-examine these ubiquitous objects and our relationship to them.
