The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art presents two exhibitions during fall quarter:

  • Bruce Nauman: Blue and Yellow Corridor — The artist conceived of this participatory environment in 1970 (four years after receiving a Master of Fine Arts degree from UC Davis), and now Blue and Yellow Corridor has been built for the first time — a narrow passageway that wraps around an existing room, combining colored fluorescent light and closed-circuit video to manipulate the viewer’s perceptual experience. Other Nauman works are also on display. Sept. 27-Dec. 16.
  • Irving Marcus: Romance & Disaster, A Retrospective — Vibrant and intensely personal paintings alongside works on paper, by an artist considered part of the extended UC Davis art community. Curator: Rachel Teagle, the museum’s founding director. Sept. 27-Dec. 30.
