Real Normal is a group of SAIC students posting on a blog of the same name. They will be having a big show this Friday, called “Magic Carpet” and you really must go if you are in the Chicago area. Arend (who I’ve posted here before), Aylor, Bailey and Carson create smart, young and fresh work that walks this weird little line between irreverance and familiarity.

PROTECT PROTECT

17 March 2009

Jenny Holzer has a new exhibition which just opened at the Whitney in New York. PROTECT PROTECT is one of her largest exhibits in the US in over 15 years. I had a chance to see her work while it was here at the MCA Chicago, and it was quite a sight. There’s an interesting interview with Holzer about the exhibit at New York Press.
