Behold, America!

This fall, three San Diego art museums — the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The San Diego Museum of Art and the Timken Museum of Art — will bring together the finest American works from their permanent collections to present a groundbreaking collaborative exhibition titled "Behold, America!: Art of the United States from Three San Diego Museums." Internationally known for their permanent collections and scholarly exhibitions, these institutions together provide a three-museum venue for "Behold, America!," which will be on view from Nov. 10, 2012, through Feb. 10, 2013. This civic collaboration, which presents work from the colonial period to the present, offers an unprecedented opportunity to view the full sweep of American art history as told through the visual art of three institutions, and to reconsider how national and individual identities have shifted over time. While lending selected works among institutions is not uncommon, "Behold, America!" is unique in the scope of the exchange and the intermingling of these distinctive collections. It is also the first time the three institutions have worked together on one project.

Margaret Noble: 44th and Landis

Part of the MCASD’s ongoing "Cerca" series, this mixed media installation by sound artist Margaret Noble charts a psychogeographical path through San Diego’s City Heights neighborhood, where the artist grew up. Combining visual traces of the neighborhood’s early Victorian years and motifs drawn from 1980s urban pop culture, "Margaret Noble: 44th and Landis" takes the form of an ephemeral sculptural environment comprising hundreds of cut paper forms. The installation also incorporates an experiential soundscape spread over 14 handmade paper speakers, and will serve as the set for a series of sound-based performances by Noble. A performance will take place on Nov. 17.
