Bob Matheny: Almost Anonymous

The work of San Diego-based artist Bob Matheny

Bob Matheny: Almost Anonymous is the first major survey of the work of San Diego-based artist Bob Matheny. Since the late 1950s Matheny has developed his expansive practice through the lens of many different disciplines and mediums, including graphic design, sculpture, small press printing, painting, writing, photography, curating and performance. Grounded in the formal tenets of modernist design, but mitigated by a healthy dose of Dada irreverence and Duchampian hijinks, Matheny’s diverse body of work is a singular blend of craftsmanship and concept, idea and object, wit and intelligence.

Presenting key works and moments in his remarkable six-decade career, Bob Matheny: Almost Anonymous showcases the artist’s prolific output and honors his pioneering contributions to, and continued impact on, San Diego’s art community.
