... Terry Fox: Exhibition walkthrough with Constance Lewallen
Terry Fox: Resonance is a city-wide exhibition curated by Dena Beard and Constance Lewallen. From October 12 to November 2, 2019, the Wattis hosts The Labyrinth Series and Other Works, an exhibition of works in a variety of mediums that revolve around Fox’s interpretation of the labyrinth of Chartres Cathedral.

Terry Fox (1943-2008), a native of Seattle, was a first-generation Conceptual artist who from 1963 to 1978 lived off and on in San Francisco, punctuated by extended stays in Europe, where he subsequently made his home. He was a core member of the artists, including Howard Fried, David Ireland, Paul Kos, Tom Marioni, Linda Montano, Bonnie Sherk, and others centered around Marioni’s Museum of Conceptual Art. Like their peers internationally, these young artists developed the new genres of body art, performance, installation, video, and sound.

This roving exhibition celebrates and reinvigorates the spirit of Fox’s works in multiple spaces around the Bay Area, including The Lab, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, Grace Cathedral, the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, 871 Fine Arts, Cushion Works, and the libraries of the San Francisco Art Institute and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
