Brief Cincinnati Field Trip

I tagged along with the video classes on their field trip to Cincinnati Friday. We visited the Contemporary Art Center and saw remnants of Shepard Fairey's retrospective in the main lobby:

I enjoyed seeing Is This Thing On? though I wish the rest of the galleries were open/installed with the next exhibitions. The most mesmerizing piece in the museum was Eva and Franco Mattes's Re-enactment of Marina Abramovic and Ulay's Impoderabilia:

Why? It dominated the room in scale. It didn't look like anything else in the show. I love the original Imponderabilia and this piece makes a little more sense to re-do rather than the version with models in Abramovic's retrospective at MOMA in 2010.

Afterward, we stepped across the street to the Weston Art Gallery to see Material Witness. Some highlights include Terry Berlier's Perfect Lovers, 2010:

Peter Haberkorn's Pool House Flurries:

... that took place inside this structure:

and Matthew Flegle's Bewilderness from 2010:

Other than that I saw some bookends I wanted but they look like I can make them for far cheaper:

Here's to getting out of town on a sunny day! Feels like a long time since the Columbus, Ohio road trip.
