Base presents Jordan Spade, Solo Show: 120 Paintings. “You get the feeling that Jordan’s made thousands of paintings to get to this point, and that he has to do it every day. The kind of confidence, complexity and mayhem that exists in each work only results from that level of comfort. The painting themselves however, are quite the opposite of comforting… in the very best way possible.” – Shawn Carney, Senior Art Director at T Magazine.

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!
