In July 1975, I was one of six Bay Area artists (with Bob Fried, Jerry Gooch, Bill Martin, Robert Moon, Gage Taylor) who spent almost a month in the most harsh and unpopulated areas of central Baja, Mexico, to produce a body of creative works. The artistic adventure turned out in part, to be an unexpected fight for survival. Upon return, the artists completed paintings, prints, sculptures, photography, film, video, holography and installations for exhibition.
The BAJA exhibition opened at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in December 1975, as that year's SECA (Society for Encouragement of Contemporary Art) award show, and subsequently travelled to the Gallery Rebecca Cooper, in Washington, DC, and to the Nancy Hoffman Gallery in NYC, in 1976.
I created an adobe-like structure in the center of the gallery space, which included diaramic photography, three video installations (the first at SFMOMA) and a 360 degree multiplex hologram of "Queen Califa".
