Jess: A Family Collection

Hackett | Mill

Presenting a special solo exhibition of the seminal Bay Area artist, ?Jess??. The paintings, drawings, collages and assemblages on view will be accompanied by ephemera documenting the relationship between Jess, his partner (the poet Robert Duncan), and their life-long family friends, whose collection forms this show.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Jess: A Family Collection :

The life and times of legendary Bay Area artist Jess (b. Burgess Collins 1923) is explored through this private family collection of paintings, drawings, collages and assemblages, spanning more than five decades of work from the 1940s-–1990s. Jess was originally trained as a scientist and drafted to work on the Manhattan Project before abandoning that work to become an artist.
