Dario Robeleto

Will The Sun Remember At All

2011–12

In Plain Sight brings together artists whose work points to the invisible systems and unknowable mysteries that shape and define our lives. The exhibition features the work of Kathryn Andrews (Los Angeles), castaneda/reiman (San Francisco), Dario Robleto (Houston), and Weston Teruya (San Francisco).

A seeming paradox, the phrase “hiding in plain sight” contains elements of both obscuring and exposing, and it implies that secrets, while visible, may only be noticed or revealed upon close inspection. Through strategies of layering, embedding materials, replacing one material for another, and giving concrete form to invisible phenomena, the artists in the exhibition reference history and art history, pop culture, science, and personal identity.

Kari Marboe

Tracings, 2018

Kari Marboe attempts to recreate an original sculpture, recorded as missing from MCAM’s permanent collection, by the influential but under-recognized ceramicist Daniel Rhodes.

The only remaining evidence of this sculpture is its accession date (1975, gift of the artist) and a murky black and white photograph.
