Torrance Art Museum (TAM) presents the Fall Exhibitions on display beginning September 19.
Tam is pleased to announce two new exhibitions for fall: Baker’s Dozen 2020 in the Main Gallery and Rewilding Structures in Gallery Two.
Main Gallery – Baker’s Dozen 2020 acts as a review of sorts; a survey show of thirteen artists whose work made an impression upon the curators in the last year. These thirteen reflect current directions in Southern Californian contemporary art practices.
Historically, a Baker’s Dozen is thirteen instead of twelve, as British bakers in the 13th century gave customers an extra loaf of bread to avoid being punished by King Henry III for cheating the public when serving up notoriously light loaves. It takes on new meaning during 2020, considering all the necessary pandemic closures that robbed public of experiences. As with previous Baker’s Dozens, the selections within this exhibition reflect our own preconceptions and biases, centering on artistic endeavors at this moment in history. 2020 has proven to be a year of daunting challenges, and it is insightful to discover how new creations can either follow, oppose and/or move beyond the influences of our particular times.
