    Casemore Kirkeby: Todd Hido - Intimate Distance

    Comment by AB: Todd Hido's images never fail to draw you in, dare you to figure them out and solve their riddles. There's always a mystery, a backstory, something missing, something unclear... and that's the allure. Good show; go see.

    Guerrero Gallery: Landfill/Bedrock

    Artists: Thomas Campbell, Maria Guzman Capron, Richard Colman, Michael Dotson, Joey Enos, Sam Friedman, James Gobel, Rebekah Goldstein, Sarah Hotchkiss, Malcolm Kenter, Greg Lamarche, Caroline Larsen, Danielle Lawrence, Lana Licata, Marcela Pardo, Hilary Pecis, Cleon Peterson, Ben Quinn, Josh Reames, Megan Reed, Laura Rokas, Tosha Stimage, Maryam Yousif.

    Comment by AB: Bedrock is stable; landfill can be iffy. Kind of like the ups, downs and sideways-es artists experience during the course of their careers. As for the artists in this show, here's where they are today. Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, we'll have to wait and see.
