The CalArts Pool Fisheye Snapshot

Mira Schor ’73

Mira Schor ’73 reports, “My work from my years at CalArts was exhibited in Mira Schor: California Paintings, 19711973 at Lyles & King Gallery in NY last April. The show was widely reviewed, including in Artforum, the New York Times, Hyperallergic,,, Artnet, and the New Yorker. My work from that period is included in Where Art Might Happen: The Early Years of CalArts, which focuses on the legendary founding years of CalArts. [See story on page 17.] It’s a wide-ranging group exhibition presenting a variety of perspectives on the school: parallel movements from the milieus of conceptual art, feminist art, and Fluxus, as well as the school’s radical pedagogical concepts, brought together for the first time. I am also the recipient of a Sharpe Walentas Studio Fellowship for 2019–20.”
