Charles Howard: A Margin of Chaos Illuminates Creative Trajectory and Bay Area Connections of Significant Abstract Artist

This summer, the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) will mount the first museum exhibition in over six decades to explore the legacy of Charles Howard, a pivotal figure in the Surrealist and abstract art movements of the mid-twentieth century. Charles Howard: A Margin of Chaos will showcase more than 50 works by the artist, drawn from the collections of many esteemed museums across the country, that chart his affiliations with Surrealism and abstraction, as well as his previously underexplored roots in the Bay Area and its influence on his work. The exhibition will be on view at BAMPFA from June 21 through October 1 and will be accompanied by the first ever monographic publication on Howard, which includes new scholarship on this important and underrecognized artist.
