Today, I am too lazy to be clever; and I gotta save my energy for all the art (and music) I’m about to get up into today and tonight.
E.Brady Robinson at Addison/Ripley - LOVE her and not sure why I keep putting off her offer to photograph my desk. The desks really do say it all, especially about what the creative mind looks like in an abstract kind of way. 3-6pm at Addison/Ripley.
Winter Recap at Honfleur Gallery - If there’s ever a reason to get to SE DC, Honfleur is usually one of them. This show pulls together work by Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann and Gustavo Diaz Sosa amongst others. 5-9pm at Honfleur.
Looking Ahead at Randall Scott Projects - I don’t love a lot of the artists included in this show, but I do like James Busby, so go for him. 6-8pm at RSP on H St., NE.
MFA Open Studio at American University - See what the “kids” are up to! I don’t even know who they are, which means this could be a boom or bust event. 6-9pm at American in Upper NW.
Exposure at Catalyst Projects - This one gets a shout out specifically to support local musician (Apes, Heavy Breathing), photographer and all-around town lady creeper Amanda Kleinman. Go Kleiny! 6-9pm in Brookland, NE.
Ellington Robinson at Project 4 - This is gonna be Supreme Magnetic. It’s Ellington’s cartographic world and we’re just living in it. 6:30-9pm at Project 4 in the U St. Corridor.
Sunwolf at Comet Ping Pong - Not an art exhibit, but it is where you will find most of the artists in a kind of afterparty form. Plus, it’s Sunwolf!!! 10pm until ???
Eye-Candy Monday: Silk-screen on ceramic plate by Keaton Henson.
Eye-candy Monday: Carlos Nicanor | Artist Profile (spanish)
Eye-Candy Monday: Detail from the illustration “Formation of the Crescent of the Moon”, from the Turkish version of The Wonders of Creation by al-Qazwini, artist unknown, c. 1717 (source)
Eye-Candy Monday: Germanic Funen bracteate, Denmark, 5th century, National Museum of Denmark
Better late than never, as I spring some last minute suggestions on you regarding what you should get up to tonight.
Kristina Bilonick at Arlington Arts Center - I like Kristina; she has good energy going on. I also liked the ceramic hamburger she shared in Furthermore’s last show. She also has that art cheer squad thing going on. And what of her art? I like that too, but like the matrix, I can’t tell you about it, you have to see it for yourself. “Folklore” opening tonight, Saturday, November 2 from 6-9pm.
FotoNOMA: The District Experience - Tonight go see what 25,000 square feet of photography looks like. I am personally super-psyched about the participation of Empty Stretch Collective (LOVE Aaron, LOVE Nate, LOVE Jordan), STRATA collective, the indie Photobook Library (iPL), and a collective called Silvercore who I know nothing about but love their mission statement. Opening tonight, Saturday, November 2 from 7:30pm - 9:30pm at 51 N Street NE, DC.
Eye-Candy Monday: Ana Teresa Barboza: Animal Bodies and Embroidery
A comic I did last Halloween for Vol. 1 Brooklyn. Forgot to post it until now!
Eye-Candy Monday: Mary Sibande, I put a spell on me, 2009, digital print on cotton rag matte paper.
