Ellipsis: Pulitzer Arts Foundation

During my visit to St. Louis I had to visit the Pulitzer Arts Foundation!

Ellipsis (April 15 – July 2, 2016) was currently on view, and it was such an immersive experience! All of my senses were stimulated through taste, touch, look and listen. On view was one of my favorite artists of all time: Felix Gonzalez-Torres. His work stimulated my senses as the roomed glowed gold, and it is a special treat to be able to take a piece of candy to eat, which also keeps the work alive.

Intergalactic Soul

Jason Woodberry’s “Dark Matter”

Intergalactic Soul is an art exhibition that brings science fiction and social awareness together as one. The artwork explores a cosmic sci-fi theme that’s driven by social, political and cultural undertones. Imagination meets consciousness to create a show with a message for all to ponder, discuss and enjoy.

Marcus Kiser’s “Lasers Not Losers”

Intergalactic Soul art exhibition  is at the Harvey B. Gantt center of African-American Art in Charlotte, NC through Sept 27, 2015.

Intergalactic Soul is the visual work of artist Marcus Kiser & Jason Woodberry. Quentin Tally is the performance artist and narrator.

WILLIAM POPE.L: TRINKET

One of the most stunning exhibitions I have ever seen, the William Pope. L: Trinket exhibition at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA (March 20–June 28, 2015) was a truly immersive experience.

One quote to mention from the website by William Pope. L:

“This project is a chance for people to feel the flag,” Pope.L has said. “People need to feel their democracy,not just hear words about it. For me, democracy is active, not passive. With Trinket, I am showing something that’s always been true. The American flag is not a toy. It’s not tame. It’s bright, loud, bristling and alive.”
