TALKS: MCA

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.)
