Referencing the famous group of immense astronomical radio telescopes in the New Mexico desert, "The Very Large Array" nods to the vast spectrum of objects assembled in MCASD’s collection and to the ability of artists to connect us to something much larger than ourselves.

Featuring more than one hundred artists and representing five decades of collecting, this expansive exhibition of museum acquisitions highlights many of the region’s most beloved and accomplished artists. With two-dimensional works displayed in a salon-style installation, the white cube space at the center of the room presents focused, thematic selections, which change seasonally.

In July, MCASD opened a two-person exhibition in the cube, pairing early works by Manny Farber and Faiya Fredman. Juxtaposing Farber’s paintings on collaged paper from the late ‘60s and ‘70s and Fredman’s mid-1970s works of fleece and sand on canvas, the exhibition considers questions of process and materiality in the work of two distinctive San Diego artists.

Exhibition Dates: "The Very Large Array" will be showing Thursday, Nov 29, 2012 through Sunday, Oct 13, 2013 at the MCASD downtown location inside the Jacobs Building.
