Venue

Overload by Conrad Ruiz, 2009, watercolor on canvas, 77 x 110 inches, BAMPFA, gift of the artist and Neil LeDoux

We are delighted to announce that work by Evelyn Reyes is included in the Way Bay 2 exhibition at the Berkeley Art Museum.

The second iteration of an innovatively organized exhibition of art, film, performance, poetry, and archival materials, Way Bay 2 continues the wide-ranging exploration of the creative energies that have emerged from the San Francisco Bay Area over two centuries.

The exhibition features almost two hundred works by Bay Area artists and others whose work engages directly with the region’s geographic and cultural landscape. Dozens of works not seen in the first iteration of the exhibition are on view, including pieces by Rosie Lee Tompkins, Larry Sultan, Frank Moore, Ajit Chauhan, Nicole Phungrasamee Fein, Conrad Ruiz, and Lewis Watts as well as films by Jordan Belson, Lawrence Jordan, and Chick Strand.

Ranging in historical scope from the early nineteenth century to the present, the exhibition explores the enduring themes and powerful artistic voices that have emerged from the Bay Area across times and cultures, highlighting transhistorical affinities among the many artists, filmmakers, authors, and other creative practitioners who have drawn inspiration from the region’s distinctive character. Rather than a conventional historical survey, Way Bay 2 is an open-ended and provocative attempt to reveal hidden currents and connections among works from disparate times, cultures, and communities.

When visiting the Way Bay 2 exhibition, look for work by former Creativity Explored artist Evelyn Reyes:
