Do you like this story?
Hello again, onthecusp. Thanks for letting me guest blog, Scott.
I rarely get out to see opening events, so when I got an invitation to see the installation Trophy I decided to take my video camera with me so that I could record some part of my experience and then share it here (it’s a kind of tribute to James Kalm). In true Kalm fashion this is a rather off-handed production -- and please notice that in the first video I cut off a bit of my introduction and while crossing the street I nearly got run down by some truck.
I’ve known Brose Partington for a while and have kept track of his work with the NYC-based Dam, Stuhltrager Gallery, but just recently met James Darr who works over at Herron.
In addition to the gallery walk through the installation, I recorded a short discussion with the artists. Thanks for accommodating me, Brose and James.
I’ve been intrigued by the Erstwhile Gallery (I too saw Mike Lyons’ intriguing installation in the space), but really haven’t known what to make of it. Who owns that building, anyway, and what will it become?
