REVISIONS Amy Berk: Recoverings (Feb-Aug 2007)
San Francisco-based artist Amy Berk uses textiles in the Magnes collection as inspiration for her installation that explores the connections between feminism, Jewish culture, minimalism, and the 1960s. Berk uses linens left to her by her grandmother who lived in New York City, home to many of the Minimalists.

Berk was born in Brooklyn, received her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute and has written extensively for national art magazines. Berk is represented by Traywick Contemporary and is a co-founder of the on-line magazine of Bay Area contemporary art.
