Warm Up the Skinny Jeans, Kids – Art to Check Out This Weekend!

Taco Bus, warm up my burrito because I’m coming to down to the ‘Burg this weekend!  With the winter holidays behind us downtown St. Pete is kicking off the second half of the art season.  Here are two things to check out this weekend.

C. Emerson Fine Arts – Films for One to Eight Projectors     Friday, 1/06 7pm

The show at CEFA this Friday is being described as  “multi-projector experiments by Roger Beebe“.   To say that Beebe will be showing five films is an understatement if not inaccurate.  Beebe acts as more than a film maker or even a video artist.  Using antiquated equipment and multiple film projectors simultaneously almost makes the event verge on performance art.  You can expect this to be a great show.  All of you Tempus people would definitely dig this.  Anyhow, its good to see some more not-hanging-on-a-wall art.  I spoke with Beebe and will be posting the interview shortly.

Mindy Solomon Gallery – Rock-Paper-Scissors     Saturday, 1/07 6pm-8pm

Oliver Lang, People, Series of 78, 2005, 60 x 80 cm, Lambda-print on aluminium (1mm) with mounting

Rock-Paper-Scissors is a group exhibit curated by Isabel Balzer of balzerARTprojects.  While the name of the show has a loose relationship with the work (as it seems every good group show does) it should tell you about how fun this exhibit promises to be.  To be fair, though, the show’s name really references the universality of art and versatility of paper.  balzerARTprojects is a great curatorial project/gallery based in Basel, Switzerland and known for exhibiting talented emerging international artists.  This exhibit will be featuring the artists Andi Bauer, Domenico Billari, Tom Fellner, EddiE haRA, Mimi von Moos, Nici Jost, Oliver Lang, Sebastien Meija and Olga Vonmoos.
