In this video, Sara and Johannes VanDerBeek talk about their collaboration with Ian Berry on Amazement Park, a yearlong, rotating exhibition at the Tang Museum that featured their work alongside work by their late father, Stan VanDerBeek.
Amazement Park took its inspiration from a dream exhibition proposed by Stan VanDerBeek, an influential 1960s and 1970s American filmmaker and artist. The exhibition presented an experimental, studio-like space that changed every month, with each rotation featuring work by the three artists, ranging from previously unseen Stan VanDerBeek drawings from the 1950s to new photographs and sculptures by Sara and Johannes VanDerBeek. The evolving nature of the project mirrored the spirit of their work, which shares a common interest in re-combination and collage, ephemeral materials and architectural forms. Over the course of the year, a multi-layered picture of influence and experimentation emerged.
