I've already noted that Judith Schaechter has a new gallery show coming up in New York. Well, there is another, even more prominent (to the New York art establishment) gallery show in New York featuring stained glass and it's alread y up and running. In this case the stained glass is by Kiki Smith, in an exhibit called Lodestar. I'd only heard about it vaguely, but I came across a video this morning.
I suspect that the video, short as it is, gives a better sense of the show than the rather unwieldy and flashy Pace Gallery website (why all the graying in and out boxes? Very distracting). More informative is the PDF press release for 'Lodestar', which has some interesting process photos, while she made the pieces at the Mayer Studio in Germany.
Small added bonus from the New York times is this Kiki Smith as Glass Artist SlideshowPosted by Tom at May 11, 2010 10:26 AM
