In a world of binaries, Grace Ndiritu creates a slippery space where she can present the world with art that is just as thoroughly slippery as the world, museums, and history-shaping narratives that surround us.

Guest Stars and Sci Fi: Brian Porray at Western Project

Brian Porray’s (NAP #84 & 2010 MFA Annual) second solo exhibition at Western Project is quite simply a must see and must feel. He fills the large, open gallery space with his signature bright and bold explosions of color, movement, and energy. In his last show, he focused on capturing the essence of his hometown Vegas and the complex power of the Luxor Hotel, and in this show, he moves to something else just as unsettling and unnerving as sin city can be to some – the ever-changing and impermanent night sky and the sci fi terrors and wonder it can bring to us mortals.
