Both artists are well-known for their large-scale installations which reference colorful, graphic imagery and contemporary pop culture. In these installations, they construct a brilliantly executed three-dimensional painting out of color, shape, and pattern; inviting us to to step into the composition as participants in an up-close and abundantly sensory experience.

Interstitial presents “Who’s the Daddy,” a solo exhibition by Wong Ping. Flashing, pop-like imagery; visual and auditory narrations that explicitly touch upon sex, politics and social relations; vibrant installations that extend into three dimensions the artist’s fantastical animation world – these are but cornerstones of Wong Ping’s (b. 1984, Hong Kong) practice that combines the crass and the colourful to mount a discourse around repressed sexuality, personal sentiments and political limitations. Hong Kong born and raised, Wong Ping discusses his observations of society, from teenage to adulthood, using a visual language that sits on the border of shocking and amusing.November 11 – December 23, 2017.

Oxbow  Seattle-based artist, Barbara Robertson has created a site-specific installation, titled “Architectonic,” composed of three projected animations which use the expansive Oxbow space as an integral part of the image.

Bridge Productions  presents KAT LARSON, THE GHOST FROM VEGA. Opening reception 10 DECEMBER. Interdisciplinary artist and performer Kat Larson creates hauntingly beautiful video paintings addressing themes of identity, race, and femininity. In Larson’s new series of photographs and video, The Ghost from Vega, she tells the story of a being from another planet who crash lands on Earth and, over time, becomes a ghost with no means to return home. Intrigued by our world, the visitor begins to explore it only to find their strength weakened by the deficit of love and compassion, and begins to slowly fade away. Over time, they become a ghost with no means to return home.  This intimate, tender story serves as a parable to the power of connection, perseverance, and strength of the spirit.

Krab Jab Studios  In times of uncertainty, fear and turmoil, there is work to do, that only can be achieved when operating together. “Standing Rock” is not just another “event” that will quickly pass by but rather the embodiment and expression of our zeitgeist: the spirit in time not only in Dakota or the United States, but globally. Polarization and disintegration is happening all around us. The suffering as seen clearly and again with the Sioux and their direct supporters, is an evident result of authoritie’s ignorance, marginalization and discrimination. Our work and social responsibility is to bring together, to connect, to listen, to communicate and to act where we can. We have already all it takes to change, if we just allow it to happen. Any step towards the great, is a solid step!
