Maria Porges, Acts of Deception: Art + Magic + Science
John Berggruen Gallery, San Francisco
March 16 - April 29, 2000

John Berggruen Gallery presents an exhibition of recent work by Maria Porges. 

In her third one person show at John Berggruen Gallery, Maria Porges explores the place where art, science and magic overlap or collide - magic meaning sleight of hand and science referring to the fundamentals such as chemistry and physics.

Maria Porges, who thinks of herself primarily as a sculptor, exhibits cabinet and shelf pieces as well as several free-standing works. Many of her works continue to include cast bottles made of tinted beeswax with elements of image and text on their surfaces.

Maria Porges lives and works in the Bay Area and was a recipient of the SECA award from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1992. Her work has been widely exhibited in galleries, museums and alternative spaces in the Bay Area and around the USA.

An illustrated brochure will be available.
