The University Art Museum is pleased to present Centric 59: Seth Kaufman. The artist’s first solo museum exhibition, Centric 59, comprises three new bodies of work displayed in the central court gallery. The exhibition will debut two eight-by-four-foot wall panels made entirely of eggshells fused in resin, plus four sculptural, organic forms made of paint, dirt, and weeds, and several delicately shaped paint-chip constructions. The exhibition will combine floor pieces, wall-mounted work, and small works made especially for the space to create a dynamic installation that will enliven the UAM galleries with the fresh spirit in which the work is made.

This exhibition is the 59th project in the UAM’s Centric program. Centric, which began in 1981, is an on-going series of small, timely exhibitions dedicated to introducing the UAM audience to work by individual artists that has not previously been shown in this area.

On Tuesday, March 28th at 12:15 pm, there will be a uam@noon gallery talk on the exhibition by Mary-Kay Lombino, UAM Curator of Exhibitions.

All events are free and open to the public.

Support for this exhibition has been provided by Anthony Meier Fine Art in San Francisco, Fringe Exhibitions, Jay Belloli, and anonymous donors. The UAM, a division of the College of the Arts, receives additional support from The Getty Grant Program and the Instructionally Related Activities Fund. Education programming is provided, in part, by the California Arts Council, The Bess J. Hodges Foundation, The Forty-Niner Shops, and the CSULB Alumni Association.
