Artists with developmental disabilities at San Francisco’s Creativity Explored explore the images and mechanisms of memory in a new exhibition guest curated by Lawrence Rinder, Dean of the College, California College of the Arts. Rinder is well-known in the art world, having served as the Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator of Contemporary Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art where he was chief curator of the 2002 Whitney Biennial. Selected works in the show include Camille Holvoet’s computer drawing of an empty room inside Napa State Hospital, James Montgomery’s landscape of clock faces and the hood of a 1967 VW bug on which artist John Patrick McKenzie has written the names of hundreds of old TV shows. Gordon Chin sums it up with a simple watercolor that states "I forgot to remember."
