Berggruen Gallery is pleased to present Passing Through Minnesota a group exhibition on view at Minnesota Street Project. The exhibition brings together internationally renowned artists that the gallery has championed over the past decade, alongside emerging contemporary artists. The exhibition coincides with the Gallery’s exhibition Sculpture in the Garden, on view in St. Helena through October 31.
Adjacent to the group exhibition, Berggruen Gallery will present a special exhibition of light works by Spencer Finch, offering visitors the rare chance to see these two pieces in a dedicated space. Atlantic Ocean (Cadiz) April 3, 2015, which Finch describes as Christopher Columbus’s view of the horizon looking towards the Atlantic Ocean from Spain, and Color Test (182), continue Finch’s exploration of his perception of natural phenomena and the way in which light alters our understanding of the world.
The exhibition comes in advance of the gallery’s permanent relocation to 10 Hawthorne Street, across from the new entrance to SFMOMA. The opportunity to present an exhibition in the dynamic Minnesota Street Project space aligns with the gallery’s mission as it looks towards its next phase, when it will continue its tradition of exhibiting major works of historic significance international in scope alongside prominent local Bay Area artists, while also providing a platform for promoting and nurturing young artists with engaging new exhibitions and programming.
