Critical Catchup 01
I keep forgetting that I'm an art critic. But here's a link to my previous piece for the LA Weekly, a round-up of gals at Bergamot Station, including Marnie Weber, Karen Carson, and Shirley Tse, whose sculpture "Sink Like a Submarine" includes the carved jade heart pictured above.
My current piece is a review of the Hammer's "Eden's Edge" which includes Elliot Hundley's seminal styro-palette "Deathless Aphrodite of the Spangled Mind" from 2003.
Marnie Weber's Spirit Girls gave a typically coffin-rattling performance Friday night in conjunction with the Hammer's screening of the artist's film and videographic oeuvre. Above, a homeless crazy man prostrates himself before Lead Spirit Girl. Weber's exhibition at Patrick Painter has been extended through June 2nd.
