Keeping Track of the Joneses
March 19 – April 12 1998
Keeping Track of the Joneses pulled from a diverse group of then-emerging artists to explore different meanings of “family." Works ranged from the Nigerian artist Fatimah Tuggar’s hybrid sculptures of domestic objects to portraits of lesbian and gay families by California-based artists Cheri Gaulke and Sue Maberry.
The exhibit also featured a full schedule of programming, featuring works by writer and dancer Mita Ghosal, performer Sharon Hayes, artist Elaine Tin Nyo, and artist and poet Tish Benson. Keeping Track of the Joneses additionally presented four programs of video works. Artists whose pieces were screened included: Thomas Allen Harris, Skip Sweeney, Danny Thompson, Glen Noble, Dennis Oppenheim, Steve Foley, Veena Cabreros-Sud, LaTrice Dixon, Amilca Palmer, Yvonne Welbon, Steve Goodman, Martha Rosler and Paper Tiger Television, Kip Fulbeck, Bob Rosen, Jane Zipp, and Lea and Pekka Kantonen.1
