The Tribune has a nice piece on MoCC's
Call and Response
... with a lot of smart stuff quoted from curator Namita
Wiggers. But, define renowned? ...in my book only Chris
qualifies, though many more major international artists are getting set
to move here... (being international isn't enough either, we have lots of internationally
active artists in Portland now, for me it's the probability of a solo show at
MoMA some day that is the litmus test).
Stockholder's park installation
shows just how good she is. Local artists
, Stephanie Robison and Jacqueline
are all quite influenced by her... and she's actually from the Northwest...
so will we ever get a solo show of hers here in Portland?
If there is a critic in Portland who is more interested in sexualized identity
politics than Richard Speer, Id be very surprised... case in point is his review
Lesbian Art Show
, a show pretty much designed to polarize reactions.
Blame jetlagg for me missing famous one-time portlander Robert
. He was always a favorite of mine and PORT reviewed a
show of his
a few years ago at Laura Russo. Our upcoming in-depth interview
with Mel Katz also has some interesting banter about the man.
