Fredericton, NB: Ingrid Mueller Art + Concepts

After my visit to Gallery 78 in Fredericton, I walked over to the Ingrid Mueller gallery.

This modern gallery with white walls and a striking black ceiling definitely caught my attention. Inside, works of artists from the Atlantic provinces hang on the walls. Pieces of pottery and jewelry are also housed in this beautiful space.

MASS MoCA – Material World: Sculpture to Environment

Material World: Sculpture to Environment at MASS MoCA

A friend sent me these interesting photos from one of the current exhibits at MASS MoCA. The artists of the exhibit, titled Material World: Sculpture to Environment, use ordinary objects (e.g., aluminum, rolls of paper, rope, fishing line) to alter the existing spaces within MASS MoCA’s galleries.

The artists, Michael Beutler, Orly Genger, Tobias Putrih, Alyson Shotz, Dan Steinhilber, and collaborative team Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen, “create their work against – or in concert with – the backdrop of the museum’s reclaimed factory space, its history, and its own rich assemblage of brick walls, wooden columns, steel beams, and multiple layers of paint”.

The exhibit runs until the end of February 2011 so if you’re in Massachusetts between now and then, you may want to stop in and surround yourself with these impressive installations.

The Friday Five: Whiteout Chairs

“White is the new black.”

The Danish exhibition, Whiteout, showcases almost forty snow-white chairs.  Amazing and beautiful, right? If only I was in Denmark to see this in person.

The Knitting Clock by Siren Elise Wilhelmsen

Norweigan artist Siren Elise Wilhelmsen’s knitting clock is pure coolness. It knits one two-meter scarf per year. Amazing, right?

Travel: Galerie Denise René in Paris

While strolling along the Boulevard St. Germain on the Left Bank (Rive Gauche), I came across the Galerie Denise René. The current exhibit is Anne Blanchet‘s light drawings all in white and I was instantly attracted.

Spiral Light

The form of Canadian designer Chris Kirby‘s spiral lamp is a thing of beauty. The lamp is made from a single sheet of plastic with slits cut into it. Let the light shine!
