Thomas Glassford: TESTIGO / WITNESS: Popular Fiction and the Dismembered Object
A multi-faceted exhibition of new work by Thomas Glassford, along with an extensive selection from his personal collection.
Part cabinet of curiosities, part ready-made surreal museum; Glassford´s assemblage offers a unique speculative, formal and fictional detour informing his sculptural practice.


Description:

Quint Contemporary Art (QCA) was founded in 1981 and has been a fixture on the San Diego art scene ever since. The gallery exhibits contemporary painting, sculpture, installations, drawings and prints by both emerging and established artists. Some of the artists in the gallery’s over 250 exhibitions have included Manny Farber, Sol Lewitt, George Trakas, Kim MacConnel, Dan Flavin, Ryan McGinness, and Roman Opalka.

In 1990, owner Mark Quint began a residency program with San Diego collector Michael Krichman, creating Quint-Krichman Projects, which sponsored visual artists from around the globe to visit, work and exhibit in his multiple studio spaces. This collaboration was instrumental in the creation of inSite, San Diego and Tijuana’s international art biennial.

In 2000, QCA was particularly proud to have three gallery artists selected to exhibit in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Biennial, which highlights the most important American artists working today. The exciting exhibition schedule has kept QCA on the cutting edge of contemporary art in Southern California, bringing artists from all over the country and the globe to San Diego.

“It is fair to say that no one has done more than Mark Quint to develop the art scene in San Diego over the past 25 years. It has been an inspiration to follow him and the exhibition program he has consistently presented in gallery spaces all over the city for so many years. The through line has been his impeccable eye, uncompromising intelligence and a fierce loyalty to his artists and his friends. His persistence for the sake of art has vastly improved the cultural climate of our city.”
– Hugh Davies, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego

Over the past twenty-five years QCA has facilitated the placement of art in private, corporate, public and museum collections. QCA continuously works with multiple museums in the assistance of exhibition management for the gallery artists’ work. QCA also collaborates closely with private collectors and public institutions to realize bold, exciting commissioned work by some of the leading artists of today.

Quint Projects is an offshoot of Quint Gallery and deals with experimental, site-specific forms of art making. The new industrial gallery space located in the San Diego neighborhood of BayHo.
