75 Reasons to Live: Carey Perloff on Robbert Flick’s Along Ocean Park, Looking West, Summer

Carey Perloff is the artistic director of the American Conservatory Theater. She likens Robbert Flick's Along Ocean Park, Looking West, Summer (1980) to a curtain rising at the theater.Remember the end of Manhattan, when Woody Allen asks himself what makes life worth living? In January 2010, during SFMOMA's three-day 75th anniversary celebration, 75 people from the Bay Area creative community gave extremely short talks — 7.5 minutes or less! — on a single collection work of their choosing. Someone called it “manic splendor“ — and it was. You can view all of the talks on The Anniversary Show exhibition page. Or look for them here, on Open Space.
