OC Weekly's Description

The Orange County Museum of Art is in Newport Beach, in Fashion Island. Every time we step foot in there, they surprise, enthrall and thrill us. From Karen Moss' (deputy director for exhibitions and programs) "15 Minutes of Fame: Portraits From Ansel Adams to Andy Warhol," exploding with photogs as varied in style and substance as Larry Clark, Warhol and Lawrence Schiller, to the utterly different—and equally mesmerizing—exhibition of Carlos Amorales' mesmerizing spiderweb sculptures, films and collages, curated by Sarah Bancroft, who's also heading up the museum's 2010 Orange County Biennial this month. And they also have a treasure trove of videotape. Oh boy! The museum was there at the beginning of the video-art movement, and despite the (presumed) dearth of celebrity-sex footage, the very thought of immersing ourselves in a bacchanalia of magnetic tape, amid the dusty and decaying formats of VHS and Beta, makes us hot.
