This summer, The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth hosts two exhibitions highlighting the development of the twentieth century art scene in the Golden State. David Park: A Retrospective and the highly conceptual Disappearing–California c. 1970: Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden, Jack Goldstein weave together two modern art movements from different parts of California. Guest curated by Phillip Kaiser of Los Angeles, Disappearing occupies 13,000 square feet of the museum’s entire first floor. It is thematically organized and explores how the three artists stretched the limitation of disappearance through performance. The show gets its name from Burden’s 1971 work “Disappearing,” in which he vanished from December 22-24. Both exhibitions share a geographic connection and trace the development of two overlooked artistic movements that emerged in 20th century California.
