In her Plains Art Museum show, “Vore,” Andrea Carlson uses a shocking comparison – museums to cannibalism.
Carlson uses images, though not graphic ones, inspired by the mondo exploitation films of the 1960s as a metaphor for museums’ hunger for cultural artifacts, even through ill-gotten means.
The homecoming was postponed, but the show went on. Grand Forks native James Rosenquist wasn’t on hand at the Plains Art Museum on Thursday morning for the unveiling of his $1.2 million “The North Dakota Mural,” but the work spoke for itself.
After decades of trying to get a James Rosenquist painting, the Plains Art Museum is having a little fun with their new prized possession.
“It’s kind of a big deal,” a recent mailing stated, referring to Rosenquist’s “The North Dakota Mural,” a project that’s been years in the making, which will be unveiled Thursday.
An interesting project is under way at the Plains Art Museum, 704 1st Ave. N., Fargo. People have been bringing in patterned 6-by-6-inch fabric squares and notes describing the personal significance of those pieces.
Artists Rob Fischer and Kevin Johnson, along with representatives of the Plains Art Museum, Fargo, and the city of Moorhead, will meet with residents, artists, master gardeners and anyone interested in art, landscape and design to discuss plans for a Defiant Garden at the Moorhead power plant site.
"Everybody knows the Beatles,” says Colleen Sheehy, director and CEO of the Plains Art Museum. “The Beatles cross several generations.”
The proof is not only on the walls at the Fargo museum but also in who picked what went on the walls.
