by
Nick Cave at Seattle Art Museum March 10th, 2011 - June 5th, 2011
Posted 4/25/11

The artist Nick Cave has a little something for everybody. Do you like pastel colors and shiny objects? He’s got something for you. How about costume, performance and show? There’s some of that too. Ritual? Craftsmanship? Consumerism? Check.  There are so many cultural references sewn, glued and drilled onto Cave’s sculptures that they explode with social baggage. At the same time they somehow are able to separate from their materials, to discard their connotations and history for a sparkling, os... [more]

A Paean to Family History and a Serious Exercise in Ancestor Worship  
by
Misha Kligman at Kansas City Artists Coalition December 10th, 2010 - January 15th, 2011
Posted 12/23/10

Originally published in Art Tattler (www.arttattler.com) By Blair Schulman New work by Misha Kligman at Kansas City Artists Coalition shows us the weariness of a world where the past is always following you. Paintings and drawings of muted or obscured figures take us into a negative space allowing viewers to avoid confrontation with the subject matter. It seems easier to absorb Kligman’s take on displacement and genocide when you cannot meet the terror in their eyes. His use of exhausting co... [more]

Bahrain-based art collective Temporary Artistic Zone put on an impressive third show titled “Don’t strew me with roses after I’m dead” at Al Dar islands this October. May Ashour spoke to members of the collective for a closer look at the work exhibited. A group of young people sporting dreadlocks and swimwear lie sprawled across traditional red-and-black floor cushions on the sand, hiding from the midday sun in the shade of a palm frond wall with photographs mounted on it. A tall, disheveled and... [more]

Posted 7/14/10

I've never seen an exhibit at the Textile Center that I didn't like.  But, this exhibit was particularly impressive.  The variety of techniques used to create fabulous wearable and unwearable fiber art engaged an unusual amount of contemporary technology.  I enjoyed Jackie and Uosis complex design techniques that use photography, Adobe Photoshop layers and an industrial size ink-jet printer to print design on fabric.  The results are simple forms with sophisticated, interesting surface design pr...

The opening night began before I even entered the Moderna Building, outside a large crowd of people from the students to the dressed to impress mingling on the lower platform and crowding on the stairs -  some venturing through the very imposing doors (Doors of education and knowledge, their stature indicating that something special is about to be revealed, double doors so heavy I nearly disjoint my arm to get through), and alongside the obvious audio system that is set out along the front of the bu...
