Fifteen, 1999, Installation view

Organized and guest-curated by critic and art historian David Pagel, this exhibition presented a fifteen-year survey of the work of mid-career artist Jim Isermann, whose work is known for its fusion of painting and sculpture, abstraction, and handicrafts. The first large-scale retrospective devoted to this internationally recognized West Coast artist, the exhibition consisted of thirty-four works, including free-standing sculptures, paintings, wall and ceiling pieces, and several room-size tableaus. In conjunction with the exhibition, the museum commissioned a multiple work, the first its Artists’ Editions Program: Isermann designed perforated in 16” × 16” vinyl decals in yellow, orange, red, and blue, which could be arranged in his signature ”overall” pattern. The first comprehensive, fully illustrated catalog of Isermann’s art, with essays by the curator and critic and art historian Michael Darling, accompanied the exhibition.
