At the Members’ Opening of “High Fidelity: Selections from the 1960s and 1970s” and “Emperor’s River: Philipp Scholz Rittermann,” at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla on May 27, many of the attendees looked as good as the art!

Chief Curator Kathryn Kanjo introduced the two exhibits, pointing out that they represented the museum in its fullest sense: its interest in different historical periods, along with its support of living artists, like San Diego photographer Philipp Scholz Rittermann, who was there at her side.

Kanjo described Rittermann’s large-scale images of life along China’s Grand Canal as having “formal complexity and mind-bending clarity,” and viewers clearly found them enthralling.

The “High Fidelity” works reflected the spirit and range of the ’60s and ’70s, and set the tone for a festive evening. The show runs through Sept. 5
