Robert Arneson, Roy De Forest and William T. Wiley are included in a group exhibition at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art. Gesture: The Human Figure After Abstraction presents the work of the first-generation artists of the UC Davis art department at a pivotal moment in art history. As part of what came to be known as the Bay Area Figurative Movement, Davis artists looked to abstract art while nurturing a distinctive identity for modernism. The exhibition opens on January 26, 2020.
