Alexis Smith’s wall painting of Marilyn Monroe.
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
