Join us for the 2015-2016 inaugural PopUp Exhibition, learn about this year’s program, and meet Argentine artist Andres Waissman (Buenos Aires, 1955), who will be interviewed by Buenos Aires gallerist, Gachi Prieto, about his work, and the role of art in contemporary Argentina.

The presentation will be accompanied by the display of Waissman’s painting, La familia (1980), which is part of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life.

About the PopUp Exhibition Series

Each week, UC Berkeley faculty and students, visiting artists and other notable guests present brief lectures focused on selected treasures from the The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life. One speaker and one object at the time, these “flash” exhibitions include the opportunity to view the art and artifacts discussed intimately and up close.

Bring your own lunch, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and take part in an exciting learning program, free and open to the public. Close-up view of collections included.
