75 Reasons to Live: Sarah Roberts on Terry Fox’s Pendulum Spit Bite
Sarah Roberts is SFMOMA associate curator of collections and research, and she’s talking here about Terry Fox’s print Pendulum Spit Bite (1977). She describes the mysterious pull of this etching and explains how Fox created it.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.
