Miki Baird’s “Read This … Part Two” at Studios Inc Exhibition Space is a meditation on death, trash and dissolution through the medium of shredded paper. The exhibit, a sequel to “Read This” at Haw Contemporary last November, builds on Baird’s previous work and explorations with her deceased father’s junk mail. Entering the gallery, one is immediately struck by the enormous scale of Baird’s works. “Chronicle 3” is a 30-foot pile of shredded junk mail, light in tone and perfectly shaped. At 4 feet wide, it’s like an enormous hotdog covered in sawdust.

In mid-April, Kansas City artist Robert  Bingaman showed slides and talked about  his work as part of the Nerman Museum  of Contemporary Art’s Third Thursday  visiting artists presentations.

The next thing Bingaman knew, the  museum’s executive director, Bruce  Hartman, invited him to do a show —  right away. Hartman was captivated by Bingaman’s new swimming pool paintings — presented as luminous blue geometric shapes surrounded by Continue Reading…

Jaimie Warren: ‘That’s What Friends Are For”

Art in Review
ByROBERTA SMITH
05.02.14 page C26 of the New York Times

In her latest New York exhibition, Jaimie Warren comes across as a force of nature, or at least pop culture, whose work brims with messy promise. Based in Kansas City, Mo., and New York, Ms. Warren is a founder of Whoop Dee Doo, a traveling artist-run project that has created performances and installations at universities, festivals and museums since 2006. On her own, she concocts photographic impersonations of celebrities and characters from the world of entertainment.
