Kristen Morgin, Sweet and Low Down, 2004

Renee Lotenero, The Red One, 2003

We were inspired by THING at UCLA’s Hammer museum this weekend, clearly a roadmap of the future. The surprising curatorial vision blends relaxed wit and craftsmanship (craftspersonship). The kind of show to make you fall in love with art again.

In the initial wall text, THING separates itself from performance and installation, well timed to coincide with the somewhat lackluster Gates opening in NY. It makes sense: subtle nuance can be lost in a large work. THING is a generosity grenade.

    Thanks, Bas! Kristen Morgin is a favorite of ours, and, in fact, she teaches ceramics at Cal State Long Beach, where I’m a grad student in the Art History department.
