The museum is part of the art as OCMA explores architecture and permanence
The Orange County Museum of Art’s latest exhibit won’t be a typical gallery with “Do Not Touch” signs plastered all over its walls.
The “2017 California-Pacific Triennial: Building As Ever” exhibition has 25 projects, some of which museum attendees can step through, move and wear in the museum.

A hand icon by each piece of artwork indicates that guests are allowed to touch the piece. A hand crossed by ... (read more)

The Dangerous Professors
@ Triumph
2055 W Cermak Rd, Chicago, IL 60608-4115
Opening Saturday, May 13th, from 6PM - 10PM
The Dangerous Professors, a curatorial project exhibiting over one hundred and fifty artists–educators, acts as a counter-action to the pervasive rightwing impulse whose spirit jeopardizes civil, artistic and academic freedom by calling out, shaming, and harming those it opposes. The exhibition responds by first inviting artists who define themselves as educators to participate, the result of which creates a list of art-educators that can ... (read more)

Rebecca Ripple in Hometown Pasadena 5.17.17

“Los Angeles-based object makers whose work exists in the interstices, the spaces between the historical genres of the decorative arts, still life, and abstraction.”
Some fun, quirky, intriguing art at the Pasadena Museum of California Art.
Aartists Jeff Colson, Renee Lotenero, Kristen Morgin, Joel Otterson, Rebecca Ripple, Aili Schmeltz, and Shirley Tse take ordinary, “quotidian and overlooked” objects and create, so a viewer is caught, along with the object, “in between the memory of their previous function or usage and their abrupt and unexpected ...

Report: Orange County Museum of Art
With the exhibition title “Building As Ever,” the 2017 California-Pacific Triennial unites a spectrum of geographies through a theme of flux.
“Building As Ever,” the 2017 edition of the Orange County Museum of Art’s California-Pacific Triennial, is aptly named. For many years now, the museum has been engaged in a Sisyphean attempt to leave its Newport Beach campus behind for more glamorous digs. A patch of land in the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa ... (read more)

Emily Nimptsch reviews Alexandra Wiesenfeld’s o on alphasixty 5.16.17

Alexandra Wiesenfeld at Klowden Mann
Walking into Klowden Mann–currently housing Munich-born, Los Angeles-based artist Alexandra Wiesenfeld’s latest exhibition, o–one is struck with the unorthodox hanging of the artist’s work. Here, small and large pieces are seemingly arranged at random. Several works are crowded onto a single wall in a style reminiscent of the Parisian salons of yore, while other areas are virtually empty. There is, naturally, a method to such unexpected madness. The show was organized based on theme and ... (read more)
