Pan Recommends for the week of August 2 through August 8
The Big Slide Show part 2 at Lawndale, Thursday, August 2, 6 pm. A bunch of artists from the Big Show stand up and awkwardly talk about their own work. Come hear Matt Adams, Caleb Churchill, Jessica Crute, Daniela Koontz, Liza Littlefield, Chad Maydwell, Tracey Meyer, Pen Morrison, Donna Perkins, Cary Reeder and Stephanie Toppin.
The Ai Weiwei documentary, Never Sorry, opens Friday, August 3rd at the Sundance Theater. Should be awesome.
The Bridge Club performing Medium at Art Palace, Saturday, August 4, 6-8 pm. The Bridge Club killed with their performance Natural Resources at Lawndale in 2011, so we have high hopes for Medium.
Emily Sloan's Recreational Aesthetics: "Please Don't Tell My Parents" at Darke Gallery, Saturday, August 4, 2 to 4 pm. Virginia Billeaud Anderson writes, "I don’t know what it is, but Emily used the same title for the video she presented in the 2011 Big Show, in which her film character slapped a black man’s naked ass, and that outrageous work of art that made me decide it was worth being at Lawndale and tolerating the crowd and heat." Spanking? We're there!
Cornucopia Incorporated at Kallinen Contemporary, Saturday, August 4, 7-11 pm. Another overstuffed Randall Kallinen production (55 artists, at least!) down by the Ship Channel. Among the artists are Daniel Johnston, Solomon Kane, Norberto Clemente, Catfish Perez and many more!
