This worthwhile, though problematic, exhibition begins simply but evocatively, in a small antechamber, with a juxtaposition of two works that manages to suggest a number of the historical and aesthetic trajectories that will unfold in the rooms to come. The first of these is a 1964 drawing by Charles White, who came to prominence as a WPA muralist before accepting a teaching position at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. The piece, entitled Birmingham Totem, was created in response to a 19... [more]

From Jorge,   While visiting the show i encountered various works from various artists. Most works did not capture my attention, but there was an exception, well three actually. The video installation of the bear was very captivating. Also the artist books that were there were very thrilling, a look a gritty look at a gritty artist. My favorite piece was the buffalo. The End. Love you Clement. [more]

Dear Diary, Today I'm writing about getting 10 more points by doing this assignment and hopefully finishing  the final... As usual I am become the tool and recieved most of the work but aside from that... The most memorable thing i saw in the Japanese history museum was the piece with the half-a-buffalo ramed into a mirror... Mainly because it was quite confusing and made me think alot about why it was made like as such... Mainly what i concluded was that the artist was either thinking that it w... [more]

although I really enjoyed a few of the pieces in the show,  I didnt feel any sort of connection or fluidity in the show. It was hard for me to take anything from the show, as it was very mixed up, making it hard to concentrate on any sort of theme in particular. I liked the colorful car crash painting though. [more]

an interesting show. there seemed to be a definite lack of space, as everything generally was crowded together which didn't work so much with such a diverse millieu of art...however the variety served as a visual sampler and, if they were spaced appropriately, the peices could have dictated an interesting and varied narrative without confusing or overwhelming the viewer. the only contemporary art show i can even remember seeing at janm, which might speak for something.
