Colter Jacobsen’s time-based drawings and found object installations stand as meditations on memory and forgetting, seeing and blindness, lust and longing. The San Francisco-based artist, who has roots in the San Diego County town of Ramona, presents new work inspired by his recent travels by foot and train along the coast of California. Jacobsen’s first solo exhibition in a museum, This is How We Walk on the Moon will also include a selective survey of key works made over the past several years.
This is How We Walk on the Moon: Colter Jacobsen is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and made possible by generous lead underwriting support from the Cochrane Exhibition Fund. Additional funding is made possible by proceeds from the 2014 Biennial Art Auction. Institutional support of MCASD is provided by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Fund.
