Megan and Mike tear up LA!

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Galleon Traders double-feature in Lost Strangeles this weekend! Megan Wilson is in an exhibition at Tinlark Gallery in Hollywood, and Mike Arcega is an exhibition at Steve Turner Contemporary in Los Angeles!

Megan is one of the three artists in Re::Views at Tinlark, although technically since she’s doing something in the Project Room, her Morning Glory installation might just be its own entity. I’m sure that it’s going to be gorgeous. The other artists in Re::Views are Scott David Johnson and Catherine Ryan.

Mike is part of Past Over, a group exhibition featuring works inspired by historical facts that are often overlooked, sanitized or denied. He’s showing three of his sculptures: a life-size suit of Spanish armor made from manila folders; a large canon created from beer cans and shredded bills and documents; and a cathedral made of petroleum-based plastic (PVC). This is the inaugural exhibition at Steve Turner Contemporary’s new location. Past Over also includes Zoë Charlton, Sam Durant, Ken Gonzales-Day, Mary Kelly, Marc Andre Robinson, and My Barbarian.

For viewers who go to see Fermata, there are brochures (more like mini-books) that offer a sample image and brief statement about the work from each artist in the exhibition.

I thought it might be nice to post  up my cohort’s texts and images, but it seems like folks are a bit reticent, which I totally respect. I do want to honor how talented and amazing my fellow MFAs are, however, so I’ve just added links to Bill Jenkins‘  new website and Lindsay Benedict’s ongoing podcast website to my sidebar, and let you take it from there.
