Beau Monde: Toward a Redeemed Cosmopolitanism.
Critic turned indie curator Dave Hickey, our flaneur du jour, welcomes us to his world. It's not the usual biennial, earnestly investigating local conditions to expiate the sins of globalism; Hickey, like Baudelaire, just wants to fall in love. Look for his trademark passions: cool classics (Ellsworth Kelly, Bridget Riley), upbeat California color (Ken Price, Jorge Pardo), sex & drugs and rock 'n' roll (Kenneth Anger, Jeff Burton, Stephen Prina), and the just plain eccentric (Big Chief Allison "Tootie" Montana & Darryl "Mutt Mutt" Montana). Quirky or no, the artworks vie for attention with the exhibition's installation, courtesy of LA-based Graft Design, which favors interlocking spaces that evoke architectural traditions from around the world. July 14, 2001-2.
