Conceptual artist Tom Marioni presents a selection of works referencing the touch of the hand.
Marioni is famous for the ongoing conceptual art and book ‘THE ACT OF DRINKING BEER WITH FRIENDS IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF ART’ that began in the 1970s and that he continued to perform regularly in his studio prior to the COVID pandemic.
The works in the exhibition reference this performance through images of a cocktail, bottles of beer, a hand holding a cigar and other works.
During the opening reception Marioni will give a performance by drawing a work of art on the wall.
Tom Marioni is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and has exhibited in Europe and Japan as well as the United States. Marioni founded the Museum of Conceptual Art in 1970 and it continued until 1984. Marioni is a resident of San Francisco.
