How to Explain Art to Your Parents
"...The formula for a fabulous new Dutch internet series is simple: a visual artist is seated at a table with a work of his or her art, joined at the other end of the table by a parent. There is a brief explanation of the piece (with constant parental interruption) which leads into a sometimes rambling, sometimes heated conversation...The universal language of a parent attempting to understand their spawn is universal and mostly consists of some variation of: "huh," "okay," or "nah." Enjoy!" www.utne.com

Five Thirty Three Gallery
***This show was also awarded the purple heart of best-curated-summer-art-courage by TRYHARDER
****P.S. It was super dark in there, so you should really go see how the exhibition feels in person. I tried my best to get the feeling of directed light and shadows, but, you know...what other openings are you going to go to this month that cause you to use your noggin? I enjoyed not knowing the premise and then getting the facts afterward. Did they design this show for me...I think so.
