75 Reasons to Live: Jennifer Dunlop Fletcher on J. B. Blunk’s Invisible Presence

Jennifer Fletcher, assistant curator of architecture and design at SFMOMA, speaks on artist J. B. Blunk's chair, Invisible Presence (1962). She talks about how the Marin County-based artist, who trained as a ceramicist, respected the inherent qualities of wood in his hand-hewn furniture.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.
