The latest offering from Seattle's Western Bridge gallery, Funhouse, seems intent on leaving a lasting impression: vertigo, a lack of breath, seared retinas. Granted that the carnival image conjured by the title is more Britney or X-tina than Turrell or Nauman, but the carefully pruned selections both support and belie this whimsical touch. This is not to say the sideshow allusion is dumped. Rather, one gets the impression that each of the major “attractions,” Mungo Thompson's Skyspace Bouncehouse, 2007,... [more]

"The parks that surround some museums isolate art into objects of formal delectation. Objects in a park suggest static repose rather than any ongoing dialectic. Parks are finished landscapes for finished art.” Robert Smithson, "Cultural Confinement," 1972Maybe Smithson’s right about sculpture parks: the bourgeois ramble, the semblance of control over nature, the way they run counter to his favorite word (“dialectic”). But then again, the art and artists who inhabit these spaces have changed a li... [more]

  Having never been to the Royal Academy of Arts before I was alarmed at quite how unwelcoming the entrance and ticket room is; however, do persevere through the initial battle just to enter the gallery as what lies ahead is a real treat! It is immediately clear that this season of exhibitions and performances is a vivacious accumulation of important artists that are intelligently expanding the parameters of the contemporary art scene. GSK Contemporary, Part 2: Collision Course is boisterous, humorous,... [more]

Desertshore. Everything turns to sand - dry and parched. Writer/curator Jan Tumlir curated “Desertshore” at Cal State Los Angeles’ Luckman Gallery with Nico’s 1970 album in mind. All 15 of the artists featured in the show are Los Angele-based artists and it shows. It really makes sense; we live in a city built on top of a desert, kept alive by constant rebirth. The works deal with urban and desert landscapes, destruction, decay and rebuilding. Parts of the exhibition summon thoughts of Mad Max,... [more]
