Weekend Arts Agenda: It's the remix, baby! August 21 2009

And Lil Wayne would be proud.

MINT Gallery celebrates its 3rd annual MIXT show this Saturday, August 22 from 8-11 p.m. Each year the exhibit gathers a swarming list of local artists (some of whom are also noted music personalities) and crowds the room with two-part installations: an original work of art paired with a mix tape created as its "sound track." That's right: There will be a Walkman and headphones hanging next to each painting, sculpture, and video. (The press release promises animation in addition to traditional still artworks.) And if you buy the art, you get the audiocassette, too!

This year's show will feature the talents of over 30 working artists, students, professors, and musicians, including Bean Summer, Emily Maxwell, Saint, Rachael Spiewak, Kelly McKernan, Jason Travis, Chris Hamer, Travis Thatcher, Sunni Johnson, and many more. Last year's MIXT was a riot, so I'm sure it won't disappoint.

Otherwise, I plan to check out the screening of Koolhaas Houselife at Whitespace Gallery. The film starts tonight, Friday, August 21 at 9 p.m., and is part of the gallery's Summer Falls programming, a multimedia "intermission" masterminded by John Otte. It's a chance to see cool sculptures and cinema in one night.

And look out for the Methane Studios poster show at Alcove Gallery on Saturday!

In photographer Tierney Gearon's latest series EXPLOSURE, currently on view at Jackson Fine Art, boulders are rendered lighter than air, shadows crawl toward the sun, and ghostly forms cheerfully mingle with the living. "Frame 18" watches two worlds collide within a single image: A gray-haired businessman gasps as the sidewalk dematerializes into thin air, while a bikini-clad swimmer stands... | more...
