This week I went to the MCA to see Unbound: Contemporary Art After Frida Kahlo. (The curator's talk was actually kind of torturous, as Shirin Neshat's video installation in the next room was as loud as the lecturer's voice- mighta just been me, though.)
Two pieces that really caught my eye were Tiny Split Character, a collage by Wangechi Mutu:
and Margot Bergman's Blondie.
I met Margot there; a friend of a friend, and liked her right away. She has an opening coming up June 20th at Corbett vs. Dempsey and I look forward to talking with her again and seeing more of her work.
Still at Corbett vs. Dempsey now is work by Charline von Heyl. (The catalog is fantastic.)
