Poverty Porn

by Michael Shaw
        Nikko Mueller’s show, up for one more week, begins with a great title, and goes on to deliver on its promise with a sophisticated suite of twelve paintings.  The name Poverty Porn, on one hand, comes with a certain audaciousness, especially in light of painting titles such as Gaza Strip, Freeways over Projects and reFUgee camp, Darfur.

Let’s just say that the intriguing Group Show at Angles Gallery that focuses on the theme of love, in all its flighty incarnations, does not treat the world’s most discussed topic from at least the 13th century on with such simplicity.
