Lost In Translation

by Eduardo Alexander Rabel
In terms of this exhibition's parameters, the subtitle says it all. However, when it comes to the quality of the work on view, that's another story entirely. I should probably disclose upfront that I have never studied the French language and haven't had much prior familiarity with the work of contemporary French artists. However if this mish-mash of a selection is representative, it doesn't seem that I have been missing a whole lot. To be sure, there are some excellent standouts – most notably two emotionally moving installations by Christian Boltanski, a poignant English text-based piece by Sophi... [more]

REVIEW: Peace Initiative at Frost

by Natasha Solis
In this diverse exhibit, art is being used as a tool for social change with the difficult task of motivating people to pursue peace in their lives using the Dalai Lama as example.  This is no easy undertaking when one considers just some of the reasons we devise to be combative, heavy topics such as territory, religion, race, class division, and gender. In The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama, 45 artists reflect His Holiness’ pacific message. Upon entering the Frost Museum’s Grand Gallery, we are confronted with varying portraits of the Dalai Lama, some that are larger than l... [more]
