    Casemore Kirkeby : Option to the Death of Freedom. Organized by Petra Bibeau.

    Artists: Whitney Claflin, John Edmonds, Frank Heath, Dan Herschlein, William Koone, Nicolas Lamas, Mads Lynnerup, Ellie de Verdier, Andrew Tosiello, Larry Sultan & Mike Mandel.

    Comment by AB: The mind-mauling show statement begins, "The contemporary role of option provides an illusion to allay a sense of entrapment in our daily structure quieting a never-ending loop of collapsed feedback by promise of change reliant on option." If you're into high-end hocus-pocus, it makes for an excellent read. As for me, please pass the anti-inflammatories.
