A Presentation by Marita Loosen-Fox with Ron Meyers

Terry Fox (1943–2008) lived in San Francisco for much of the 1970s, where he was an integral part of activities that centered on Tom Marioni’s Museum of Conceptual Art. Alongside gifted contemporaries such as Howard Fried, David Ireland, Paul Kos, Linda Montano, Bonnie Sherk, and Marioni, Fox abandoned the production of static art objects in favor of process works, video, installation, and performance, most of which are known through photographs and video. Living Archive is a presentation of objects, ideas, and media by Marita Loosen-Fox, Fox’ widow, and Ron Meyers, his longtime friend, exploring how the artist’s archive might be activated in the present and beyond to create what Loosen-Fox calls “echoes, shadows and reflections.” Living Archive is in conjunction with Terry Fox: Resonance, a series of exhibitions and programs related to the life and work of Terry Fox, curated by Dena Beard and Constance Lewallen.
