    Napa, di Rosa, Robert Kinmont: Trying to Understand Where I Grew Up, 31 October 2015 – 24 January 2016

    Robert Kinmont was born in Los Angeles in 1936, but grew up in the small town of Bishop, California before moving to Sonoma, where he still lives and works. One of the pioneering artists in the California Conceptual movement in the late 1960s and 70s, Kinmont's works incorporated nature and environment, as well as humor, like other California Conceptual artists such as Paul Kos, John Baldessari and Chris Burden. His series of photographs, 8 Natural Handstands embodies the ideals of California Conceptualism perfectly: Kinmont performed an expert handstand in eight different outdoor locations, the first in the Sierra Nevada mountains on the edge of a cliff.

    After a twenty year hiatus as an artist, Kinmont returned to the practice and has been included in numerous exhibitions including State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970, co-organized by the Berkeley Art Museum and Orange County Museum of Art for the Getty Symposium Pacific Standard Time in 2011-12; Ends of the Earth: Art of the Land to 1974 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 2012; Afterlife: A Constellation as part of the Whitney Biennial in 2014; and solo exhibitions at the di Rosa: Center for Contemporary Art in Napa in 2015, Alexander and Bonin in New York in 2009, 2011, 2014, and 2017.
