Tom Marioni is founder of the Museum of Conceptual Art (1970-1984), Vision magazine (with Crown Point Press--1975-1981), and The Art Orchestra (1996). He is a Guggenheim Fellow (1981), and creator of the ongoing social artwork "The Act of Drinking Beer with Friends is the Highest Form of Art", first done at the Oakland Museum in 1970. His work is in museum collections in the United States and Europe. The artist will show a 32-minute video created by the Oakland Museum of an interview in 1999 with Marioni in his studio. The video is about conceptual art and the San Francisco art world of the 60’s and 70’s. Afterward, there will be a discussion between Marioni and art writer Mark Van Proyen.
