    “Easily one of the best art exhibitions I’ve seen in years” 

    Exhibition review by Ben Marks, KQED Arts writer, December 2010

    Tony May: Old Technology, which runs through February 26, 2011, at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, is easily one of the best art exhibitions I’ve seen in years. This handsome, elegant and witty retrospective makes those of us who have not paid enough attention to May’s work for the past 30 or 40 years feel like fools. For the record, I fall squarely into that camp. To paraphrase the title of the fine catalog essay by Renny Pritikin, who borrowed the line from artist Italo Scanga, why isn’t this guy more famous?  Read the full review here.

    Coming Nov 2010: Tony May: Old Technology

    The first large-scale retrospective exhibition of works by San Jose artist Tony May opens in November 2010 at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). This  comprehensive exhibition that includes painting, sculpture and site-specific interactive installations runs through February 2011.

    By presenting carefully curated pieces from public and private collections, May’s own archive, new works and recreations of past temporal or site-specific projects that have been lost over time, the exhibition brings long-overdue recognition to May as a Bay Area art treasure in his own right.  An exhibition opening reception will be held at the ICA on Friday, November 12th from 6pm – 8pm.
