  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

This exhibition focuses on the legacy of two of Southern California’s leading venues for contemporary art since the 1940s: the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Pasadena Art Museum (known from 1941-1953 as the Pasadena Art Institute, and since 1975 as the Norton Simon Museum). These two institutions pioneered what is now perceptible as a common strategy—to exhibit the work of local artists living and active in Southern California, alongside the work of influential modern and contemporary artists from other parts of the United States and abroad.   ($6 - $9)

Publicly Private: Enrico Natali and Doug Rickard  
  Enrico Natali and Doug Rickard  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

January 14 – April 22, 2012 This exhibition explores the documentary intent and style of two photographers working 50 years apart. Enrico Natali made surreptitious photographs on the New York subways in the 1960s. By placing a small Yashica camera at his side, he could look down into the rangefinder and choose the moment to snap the shutter, obviating the need to point a camera directly at a subject. Respectful and intimate, his approach enabled him to overcome his extreme shyness. In contrast, Doug Rickard’s 21st-century approach is to roam the forgotten streets of select cities without ever leaving his house. Using Google’s Street View, Rickard screens thousands of technological artifacts that are publicly available on the internet, selects, and re-photographs images on his computer monitor. He sees them as “A New American Picture” that is both voyeuristic and heartbreaking.    ($6 - $9)
