"Robert Overby: Parallel, 1978 - 1969"
2000-06-25 until 2000-09-03
UCLA Hammer Museum
Los Angeles, CA, USA

This exhibition will examine the work of Los Angeles-based artist Robert Overby (1935-1993), who also worked as a successful graphic designer. After a brief period of public activity in the 1970s, Overby decided not to exhibit his fine art. Considered a classic California experimenter, Overbys work ranged from geometric abstract paintings in acrylic and oils to resin casts of everyday objects, as well as monumental latex rubber casts of architectural details and walls.

An influential figure and an inspirational teacher, Overby had a passionate following among artists. He challenged notions of originality and had a conceptual commitment to the free exchange of ideas, as evidenced in a self published book titled 336 to 1, August 1973-July 1969, where he reproduced every art work he created in those years. The Hammer exhibition is conceived by curator Terry R. Myers as the beginning of the public life of Overbys 1970s production. It will consist of approximately 30 to 35 objects - including latex casts of walls, doors, staircases and an entire fašade of a building. This exhibition is curated by Myers for the UCLA Hammer Museum.
