This week we’ve got art and stories, and stories of art.
Read about T. L. Solien’s long and winding career in Mason Riddle’s review of his show at the Bockley Gallery
The way stories come alive in pictures is certainly intensified in Thomas Allen’s wonderful photos
of the guys and molls of pulp fiction; Mason Riddle brings us an account of his show at Thomas Barry Fine Arts. And Suzanne Szucs shines light on the autobiographical work of four women
at the North Dakota Museum of Art, and a celebration of a fifth woman’s life: Laurel Reiter was recently feted there for her 30 years of curatorial practice, giving exposure to the artists of her region and beyond.
Erin Marsh, in this week’s Thinking Souls, gives us a reading of Mark Nowak’s
stunning collection Shut Up / Shut Down,
, from Coffee House Press, in which he channels the many voices of the changing industrial heartland, deriving a rich tapestry of narrative and invention. Rich Horton, in Mix Tape
, lets us hear some new CDs he’s been weaving into his life, good for thinking and for driving fast to (Bribe the Ghost and Self Evident are the responsible parties).
Lightsey Darst investigates what happens to story when there’s too much going on, in her piece
on the Electropolis / Xenium rendition of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis
at the Southern.
This week both What Light and our interview podcast Radio mnartists are on hiatus while they work on new series; so we’re reprising a couple of favorites. Read Marya Morstad's interview with John Hock
(originally published last summer), and Anna Meek's
wonderful poem, also published originally in 2006.
