I’ve only been here since October, so it’s fairly new. I’m from France originally and have worked at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and was a studio assistant for the French artist ORLAN. I moved to the U.S. in 2012 to study at the California College of the Arts here in San Francisco, and graduated with a Master’s in Curatorial Practice here in San Francisco.

Curated by students of the Curatorial Studies program at the California College of the Arts, this compact, well-considered gathering of work across many media byMartin Wong is a marvel of what the small-scale and seemingly ephemeral can communicate.

That could also more or less be the thesis of “Martin Wong: Painting is Forbidden," currently up (through April 18) at the Wattis Institute in San Francisco. Organized by members of the Curatorial Practice program at the California College of the Arts, the modest but wide-ranging show brings together some 150 pieces, both works by the artist and previously unseen ephemera. It shows an overlooked side of a major figure, but also, through his story, offers a glimpse of the now-passed creative world of 1960s and 70s counterculture that formed him.
