Just try to stereotype Mungo Thomson. You really can’t do it, because his artistic goals and mediums are so wide-ranging. In Mungo Thomson: Time, People, Money, Crickets, opening at SITE Santa Fe on Friday, Feb. 22, the California artist engages his audience with six works involving video, photography, magazine-referencing mirrors, coins, film, and collapsible room dividers. The show is curated by Irene Hofmann, SITE’s Phillips Director. It runs in conjunction with the group exhibition State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970 and with the single-artist show Linda Mary Montano: Always Creative.
Thomson earned a bachelor of arts degree at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a master of fine arts at UCLA. His résumé during the past decade includes solo exhibitions and projects in several U.S. cities as well as in Berlin, Basel, Paris, Brussels, Vancouver, and Guangzhou, China. He has participated in biennial exhibitions in New York at the Whitney Museum of American Art, in Berlin, Istanbul, Panama City, and Cuenca, Ecuador.
