Kate's been sharing her favorites at (the newly redesigned/spiffy) yngspc, if you're interested in what caught her eye.
I was visiting these shows with a much less critical artistic viewpoint/aesthetic, and with no real expectation except that it would be all contemporary work and some of it edgy. I immediately honed in on the textile-related pieces and, for some reason, was surprised at their number.
Chromatic affinities X, José Patrício, 2013,
buttons on canvas on wood
State of Being (Children's dress), Chiharu Shiota,
metal frame, children's dress, thread
And then I was dumbfounded...
also Sanford Biggers (I didn't get the titles)
Quilt Painting, Giordanne Salley,
oil and paper on canvas
I neglected to get any information at all about this piece (NADA Show)
or this one (Spring/Break)
I believe there was an "antique quilt" at all four shows -- and I was surprised! Oh, that fabric book tho...
Stay tuned, I have more to share!

This weekend, I'm looking forward to some sunshine and a thermometer reading 50°F at some point. Also, I'm beginning to feel on pins & needles about the baby! What's ahead for your weekend?
