Arts Roundup: Return of the Bubble Edition
Same Collaborators, New Living Quarters: The Pittsburgh-based artist Agnes Bolt, who earlier this year spent a week camped inside a bubble inside Philippa Hughes' living room, returns this weekend with a new exhibit—this one at the Project 4 Gallery on U Street NW—that features more personal information from the Pink Line Project leader. Over at Huffington Post DC, former Arts Desker Arin Greenwood previews Bolt's latest venture, which includes a pillow-shaped sculpture informed by a recording of her, Hughes', and fellow art collecter Philp Barlow's heartbeats; a video installation about the bubble experience "that can be seen but not watched"; and an iPad displaying intimate secrets shared between the artist and the two collectors. Oh, and the bubble will be there, too.
Dept. of Wild Flag: On The New York Times' ArtsBeat blog, Wild Flag gets an early dose of the Times' tweet-sourced CMJ Music Marathon coverage. Basically it's a writeup from a Times music critic—Jon Caramanica in this case—and a single tweet plucked from the masses, neither of which mentioned Mary Timony.
Exit Interview: On Click Track, David Malitz gives Double Dagger—who are done after tonight's show at the Black Cat—a loving sendoff. Arts Desk's Leor Galil also interviewed the noisy Baltimore trio yesterday.
