Over the Water: Paul Ramirez Jonas (with contributions by curator Nato Thompson, scholar Shannon Jackson, curator Marina McDougall, and social psychologist Hugh McDonald
This collection celebrates Ramirez Jonas's We Make the Treasure, the second in the museum's Over the Water series of commissions for the outdoor public space at Pier 15.
Evoking the true story of the Beeswing, a long-sunken schooner in San Francisco Bay, the work investigates the value of objects lost and recovered, above and below the water line. Essays offer broad consideration of the artist's work and its capacity to inspire moments of intimate reflection while evoking what we share in common.
