Austin Openings

Tell me everything, as you remember it.

Creative Research Laboratory
Opening October 17, 6-9pm

If Bas Jan Ader's story is any indication, (in 1975 the artist set out in the smallest sailboat ever to cross the Atlantic; later his boat turned up, but he never did,) this exhibition will be full of the melancholy of loneliness, disappearance and displacement. In addition to Bas Jan Ader, the show includes work by Myranda Bair, Susan Chen, Kate Gilmore, Justin Goldwater, David Horvitz, John William Keedy, Jason Bailer Losh, John Mata, Stephanie McMahon.  A screening of Here Is Always Somewhere Else, a documentary about the life and work of Ader, will take place on Thursday October 29 from 7 to 9 pm.

Austin on View

Erin Curtis

Women and Their Work
Through November 14

Recently returned from a Fulbright in India, Erin Curtis shows new paintings at W&TW. The show opened last night after this issue "went to press," so we'll withhold comment until the next issue.

Contemporary Culture

Lora Reynolds Gallery
Through October 31

See the review by Dan Boehl in this issue, then check out this cartoon from Big Red and Shiny. Lora Reynolds brings together work by Conrad Bakker, Colby Bird, Graham Dolphin, Mads Lynnerup and Kehinde Wiley, among others.

Devin Flynn

Okay Mountain
Through October 31

Devin Flynn's show at Okay Mountain appears to be an experiment in translating his work from the commercial world (his cartoon "Y'all So Stupid" is on adultswim) into the visual art world. If his buddy Gary Panter, with whom he plays in the band Devin and Gary, can do it, why can't he?

Austin Closings

Sterling Allen
Jessica Halonen

Art Palace Gallery
Closing October 24

Art Palace has extended these shows through October 24! In the main gallery, Sterling Allen's photos mess with your head. In the project room, Jessica Halonen's delicate branch sculptures please the eye. Artist talk on Saturday, October 10 at 2pm.

Beili Liu

D Berman Gallery
Closing October 24

See the review by Lauren Adams in this issue. More than once, I've overheard someone say this is the most striking show they've seen at D Berman in a long time. So don't miss it.

San Antonio on View

Jeffrey Wisniewski

Through January 3, 2010

Battle of the Budda?! In Wisniewski's anamation, a good and evil Budda duke it out. Sounds like Urban Outfitters might be interested in adapting this into a t-shirt. The exhibition also includes four satirical tableaux of iconic American imagery.


Unit B Gallery
Through November 7

Self-Revolution brings together the work of black artists, both academic and self-taught. Aspects of African and African American ritual are applied unapologetically by each artist to investigate the conceptual nature of operating in and outside of colonial structures, while addressing the broad and complex culture of those of African descent. (excerpted from the press release)

San Antonio Closings

Jo Baer, James Bishop and Suzan Frecon

Lawrence Markey
Closing October 16

Get out and see this show before it closes. Review forthcoming in our next issue of ...might be good.

Mark Hogensen

Sala Diaz
Through October 25

Mark Hogensen's charcoal compositions find connections between the near and the distant as well as the rational and the unreasonable while remaining complimentary and in opposition simultaneously. (excerpted from the press release)
