Lucinda Barnes was chief curator and director of programs and collections at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive from 2004 until her retirement in 2016. Here, she recalls falling under the spell of Frank Gillette’s video installation Aransas, and discusses how this record of the Texas landscape became part of the landscape of Bay Area art. (Due to a technical issue, the beginning of Barnes’s talk was not recorded.)
