*SIX SIX SIX AT THE WEX XEW EHT TA XIS XIS XIS*

columbus is a city that excels at three things: college football. training college football criminals(RBM). and murder. so obviously contemporary art isnt one of the cities strong points. click click click!

im not going to bother and slam the stuff i didn’t like in the wexner’s current show called six solos or whatever, and for a change here at weed$teeler, focus on what i was feeling…. ….anways being stranded here thanks to the blizzard that shut LGA down (i mean it doesnt even have to be a blizzard to shut that bitch down if one of the janitors even thinks about rain they will cancel a flight or five, like dont tempt me..) for days i had time to kill and was bored of checking out the newly upgraded barkers beauties on the price is right and being freaked out by drew carries dramatic weight loss, so why not pop by the wex?

my fav. type of art is the kind that the sort of person who is uncomfortable in museums/ “reads” columbus underground or the alive would say “i could do this my self!”, that being said, i love love love the megan Geckler instillation in the lobby! simple bright and fun.

fuck the haterz. more people need to make art like this.

really show me anything that is neon and not by murkami  or what ever his name is and i will tell you i love it. so i mean meg, babe… youre almost cheating when you get a good review from us!

at this point if you cant get into abstract stuff….i mean….what ever….. normally after a show at the wex i bitch about the space and how i hate it and how it breaks the show up weird and makes it all disjointed…. but not this time. im sure most people were feeling the bong sculptures on loan from “the gag” me personally i thought they toed dangerously close to “blog art” or art that “blog readers like” … but yeah back to abstract stuff. love it. love katy moran. love her stuff at this show. maybe i should say something about the sense of urgency in each painting or the found mixed media aspect with vintage disney vibe or i could just say fuck it…”im felln jay”— tony yayo voice

all the wexner needs to do know is cop the small store front. hire an edgy young curator and rotate shows like this in and out quickly. you cant re-invigorate a contemporary art scene that doesn’t exist, you have to create it from scratch and shows like this do nothing but get the ball rolling in the right direction.

    You forgot that Columbus especially North Campus is real rapey.

    thumbs up. I haven’t been in the Wexner in 10 years even though I walk by it all the time. This makes me want to go tomorrow

    wex is the only thing in the city art-wise that isn’t watered down or crafty.

    two thumbs up, maybe I will bring up the idea of a small art space in the short during my meeting with them next week. some real strange…..

    I just wanted to let you know that this review totally cracked me up. A perfect read for my Monday. Having seen the show, I’m with you about the Katy Moran exhibit. I’m really dying to know what you thought about the other exhibits. Did you see FETCH by Erwin Redl (the light installation in the grid outside)?

  6. THE GOSSIP CZAR

    NO. IT WA S TO COLD TO LOOK AT THAT.
