Just messing around with paints, crayons and other stuff, brings out joy you remember when you were young. Hint!
Kate Gilmore at ICA-U of Penn, September 5 – December 7, 2008
The value of art is that it expresses the sentiments of a diverse group of people. How ultimately we all want the same thing. Go to the ICA website and watch the short film. At first I experience discomfort, then realizing that what I was looking at, metaphorically was my own struggle.
The dogged persistence of Gilmore’s protagonists suggests the obsessive behavior that can characterize daily efforts to cope with high expectations. These dolled-up women seem desperate for success, love, or attention—desires traditionally bound up with gender and the condition of artmaking. In all of her projects, Gilmore strives for compositional perfection, and her incongruous party clothes are always perfectly coordinated with the installation itself.

NADIA HIRONAKA: The Late Show
In her multi-channel video installation, The Late Show, Nadia Hironaka expands the cinematic experience into the realm of the gallery environment. Synthesizing video projection, videos on monitors and audio, Hironaka entices the viewer to imagine characters leaving the confines of the projected image and entering the real space of the gallery. Using an abandoned drive-in movie theater as her point of departure to examine the convergence of cinematic and real space, Hironaka also asks us to reflect on how mood and emotion are constructed within the context of film.
ASU Art Museum Presentation
Organized by John Spiak, ASU Art Museum Curator, The Late Show will be installed in the Arizona State University Art Museum’s Nelson Fine Arts Center location.
