Art List

After some time away to recover from the mental and emotional abuse of SR and DL, Discos is back. A high five to Richardson Heights for his excellent work the past three weeks- you will be seeing much more from him. Now onto the list:


Sehnsucht (Light and Sie)
Paintings of  Ingrid Calame, David Reed and Dan Walsh, photography of Vanessa Beecroft, Todd Eberle, Thomas Ruff, Hedi Slimane and Jeremy Kost, and projections of Kimsooja and Joseph Dadoune.

Free Admission (Dallas Museum of Art)


Rob Kindrick: Tintype Portraits (Afterimage)
Modern day portraits done using tintype process.

Karen Garret(HGC Gallery)
I'm going to extract this quote from her bio: "Her work is associated with the Blue Man Group, Elton John, and Billy Joel." I don't think so much name dropping has ever said so little about someone's work.

Gastronomia: erotica y estimulante (the MAC)
Work about the love of food.


The Program (Conduit)
Richardson Heights has already plugged this series, which is the first installment of the Dallas Video Festival focusing on video and media art (the second installment of DVF starts Oct.3). This week will be the second exhibition at Conduit, with three more left. If you would like to see the full schedule click here. Reception with installations from last week starts at 7pm, seated screenings start at 7:30. By the way, it's free.


On Kawara (Dallas Museum of Art)
I have no idea when this opened, but its going until Aug.26th. Kawara! In Dallas! This is a rare American exhibition of his work, so don't ask questions. Just go to it.

actually, the comparison (or connection, whatever) of karen garrett's work to elton john and billy joel makes perfect sense. i scoped it out a few weeks back, and she creates these gargantuan intricate sculptures made out of nothing but shredded cardboard.

pretty amazing, to tell you the truth. quite unlike billy joel and elton john in that respect.

I totally agree with you, 5:21. That line made up about a quarter of HCG's very short bio on her on their website- I think her work deserves more credit than just being associated with those three performers.

thanks for checking back 11:37 am

at least your interested enough to leave me a comment.

i know this is mainly a music blog but since the art list exists i feel free to mention an upcoming exhibit.

you caught me , i'm trying to build up some interest . If you attend the event in sept. i think you'll be pleased .

the artists are local and have really taken on this new medium.

i'll post more information about the show as we get closer and will properly send el tocadisco a press release .

please come out i've even asked a group of musicians to perform for the opening.

it's free.
