Neil Marshall 

Neil Marshall was bitten by a magic bug as a kid and has been fascinated with magic for over forty years. He used to be a member of one of the world's most prestigious magic clubs where celebrated magicians gathered at monthly meetings and top-quality magic workshops by world-class magicians. Their philosophy for the emphasis of magic originality inspired him to develop his magic act signatures. His magic passions include visual comedy, manipulation, parlor, mentalism, close-up, and street magic for adults and children. His magic acts have been shown on local TV and at distinctive venues such as festivals, churches, parties, conferences, schools, and star evenings.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITON

Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped is the first major survey of Annabeth Rosen (b. 1957 Brooklyn, NY), Robert Arneson Chair at UC Davis, and 2018 Guggenheim Fellow.

For over two decades, Rosen has interrogated the medium of ceramics in the context of contemporary art. Featuring ceramics and works on paper from over twenty years, this groundbreaking exhibition examines how Rosen’s work radically defies the limits of her primary medium, pushing it beyond spectacle and into conversations about contemporary painting, feminist theory, endurance-based performance, and conceptual art.

Sculpture composed of many colorful fragments of ceramics, bound together.
