Especially given my early post about the presence of important women artists in SF MoMA’s collection and the current Focus on Artists show, I am very glad Anne Wagner is giving this talk at Berkeley on Friday night. I’m sad that one of the brightest, most influential, and generous art historians and teachers is leaving the Bay Area. The roster of Wagner’s former students who are convening on Saturday is impressive in and of itself, but that we will also have the chance to hear these talks is a fitting tribute to Anne, as is the conversation with Kaja Silverman that will follow. Hooray.
