Sonya Rapoport: Ensemble Performance

March 22, 2017

For Performa Magazine, Alla Efimova and Terri Cohn discuss Sonya Rapoport's painting Koch II (1973-1975) now on view at the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive as part of Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia.

"Indeed, it is an accomplished and striking painting that sparkles when surrounded by bold and boisterous neighbors in the exhibition. You and I agree that Koch II is a milestone in the artist’s journey. It represents Rapoport’s own search for utopia: a communal approach to meaning making through collaboration, conversation, and play," says Alla Efimova.
