Rat Bastard Protective Association
Apr 27-Jun 03
Through gallery ephemera and more than 40 works by 10 artists, the exhibition documents the activities and artistic production of the Rat Bastard Protective Association RBPA, an inflammatory, close-knit community of artists and poets who lived and worked together in a building they dubbed Painterland in the Fillmore neighborhood of mid-century San Francisco. The idiosyncratic group included Wallace Berman, Bob Branaman, Joan Brown, Bruce Conner, Jean Conner, Jay DeFeo, George Herms, Wally Hedrick, Manuel Neri, and Michael McClure.
