Saturday Links: Lee Bontecou, Qinmin Lee, Terry St. John, Way Out West


PRINCETON, N.J. — “Lee Bontecou: Drawn Worlds,” at the Princeton University Art Museum, is as stimulating an exhibition of works on paper as you might expect from an artist known for “drawing” with a blowtorch. Review from the NY Times http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/25/arts/design/lee-bontecou-drawn-worlds-an-artists-other-side.html?_r=0

Chinese artist Qinmin Liu -- who recently explored human fragility through the metaphor of paper in a performance at KUNST-STOFF arts, as well as the human ability to endure and connect through an eight-hour walk through the streets of San Francisco costumed only in a layer of rice -- makes her debut at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts with WATER. http://www.qinminarts.com/#!qinmin/cawa




I love Paris.... in the 1920s, William Odiorne's Paris at the Robert Tat Gallery celebrates the charms of the lost generation in a series of previously unseen prints.

Way Out West: The Art City Project's first public exhibition takes outdoor advertising space in the Inner Mission - think billboards and bus shelters - and turns it into art space, featuring works by Jeremy Fish, Jet Martinez and others. Through Aug. 17. http://helloartcity.com.


Terry St. John At Dolby Chadwick. The San Francisco Chronicle featured Terry St. John's current exhibition. They note, "his new works are strong on the female form and characterized by vibrant colors, contrast, strong brush strokes and the play of light. The backgrounds are full of reductive shapes presented in oblique, parallel and perpendicular directions."
