Wishing I were in New York right now…


So that I could go to this. Luckily, the exhibit goes through early February, so I’ll be able to hit it up when I get back.

Have any of you gone? What did you think?

Thanks to Kyle for the suggestion.

    OMG, I so want to go! Now I just have to hitch a ride to New York. Walker is an amazing artist. She is so subversive and confrontational, but yet in a creative and slightly playful way. I first saw her work in the St. Louis Art Museum back when I was in High School and was really curious about it. They had stuck in on a wall next to the elevators, not with anything else. At first it didn’t seemed very innocuous, just a silhouette. But when I read the artist’s card about the work, and began to think about its implications, it really struck me. I have been a fan of Walker’s ever since. So, definitely go, it sounds awesome!

    I saw that show here in Minneapolis at the Walker. As always, astounding, moving, horrifying, it’ll leave you breathless. Definitely bring a friend to talk about the show with or digest it for a few hours alone (like I did).

    Now, off to see Frida Kahlo’s new exhibit that just opened up here!

    Since the intended meaning probably isn’t “Person sticks finger up horse’s arse and pulls rider’s penis” (in a display cleverly alluding to goatse), I guess that means that I just don’t “get” art and should stick to superheroine comics. Oh well.

    I saw some of Kara Walker’s work in NYC when I was there last year, and I was instantly mesmerized. All the works I saw were still, though — I’d love to go see an installation like this. (Maybe we’ll relocate closer than the midwest, who knows.)

    It’s pretty rare that art speaks to me as loudly and in as clearly defined terms as Walker’s does.
