Out of Joint: Joan Tanner
Out of Joint: Joan Tanner is now on view at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, February 12, 2023 – May 14, 2023
“I love the flexibility of manipulating something that is so ordinary, or should I say accessible. There is no interruption. It somehow makes a lot of sense to me” – Joan Tanner
For over a decade, Joan Tanner has made room sized sculptures from plastic corrugated roofing sheets, re-bar, cast concrete, zip ties, drywall, c-clamps, safety netting, electrical conduit, joint compound, and plywood.
Presenting a total of 20 artworks, including two new installations and a new sculpture, this is the most extensive exhibition of Tanner’s work in California to date and represents a homecoming for an artist whose first solo exhibition was held at SBMA in 1967. All of the artworks are from the past ten years.

I am thrilled to be joining the Santa Barbara Museum of Art with its important mission ‘to integrate art into the lives of people.’ That inspiring charge is a call to engage the different communities of the Santa Barbara region.
