Arts On the Road

This morning I’m on my way to check out the Muenster Sculpture Project, the Venice Biennale, and Documenta 12. I’ll be back with stories and images to share after Sept. 13.
But first, I want to put in a plug for a particularly good First Thursday that I’ll be sorry to miss next week.
Here’s a teaser of one show: Scott Fife at Platform Gallery. Here’s Fife’s Quicktime video of “making Lionel Hampton.” The video, in strange not-slow motion, documents the creation of a recent sculpture of the legendary jazzman in cardboard, glue, and screws, with the artist eerily erased.
