Re: “Revisiting the dawn of postmodernism—and feminist art—at the Nasher

Thanks for the comment. Russian Constructivism has certainly been a part of the conversation about Kruger's bold black/white/red graphics. It's worth noting the prevalence of the black/red color palette of the exhibition in general - a spectral trope of the 80s. The whole 80s "high tech" design ethos seemed to have been founded on red and black. Another iconic 80s design element - the black suit and skinny tie. Cindy Sherman's piece for Dianne B. and Louise Lawler's photograph of one of Robert Longo's new wave dancing men captures some of that. Elvis Costello rocked the narrow black suit. David Byrne's "big suit" from the Stop Making Sense tour was a stylistic riff on the skinny black suit (it was notably white). Patti Smith worked the man's suit the best. Still does. But I digress.

Thanks for this clarification - my apologies for the omission - AW

Re: “Will the new NCMA become part of the Triangle identity?

Hey ncsu_grad -

Glad you're into it - if it catches on it could be a good thing. I like your sample sentences. We'll have to start working those in more:

"Did you catch the new Jennifer Steinkamp video installation @ the Nick? It's awesome!"

Re: “Plastic CameraWorks 2 at Rebus Works

I have been informed that the deer in Francesca Tallone's "Deer" are, indeed, real. For me the whole question of whether they are/were real is just enhanced by this. The world through the plastic lens pushes that ambiguity. Another correction, the diminutive vehicles in Jeff Evan's "Neck and Neck" are soap box derby cars, not go-carts. - AW

Re: “Friday 3.05

Re: Howard Sherman's painting - the artist has informed me:

"FYI - I no longer have a day job as a cartoonist. That was years ago.

Also, these paintings are only made using paint and marker. The masking tape, duct tape or pieces of paper that look like they're glued/taped on are paint. A basic Trompe-l'oeil effect."

My apologies for this key oversight - I hope some readers will have a chance to see this work before the show closes - AW
