Two veterans of Cincinnati’s co-op
gallery scene, now students at the University of Illinois at Chicago,
will present their strange and fascinating new project, Thing-stead
artist-books, Saturday night at Camp Washington’s Wave Pool gallery.
It’s not unusual for visual artists to choose film/video as a medium — Ragnar Kjartansson’s A Lot of Sorrow recently showed here and several videos were part of the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Eyes on the Street exhibit.
Were Claude Monet to look at the
black-and-white photographs that William Messer took of Giverny over a
20-year period — photographs featured in the Over Time exhibit at The Carnegie through Feb. 7 — he would say, “You missed the point!”
