México Inside Out

México Inside Out: An Exhibition at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas. What stood out: noisy videos, big installations, color. Weariness of violence. 
México Inside Out: a Volkswagen keeps aiming to crest a hill to the sounds of a brass band learning to play together. Every misstep and the VW comes back down the hill. The Myth of Sisyphus made clear. And: a bullet-ridden wall, disassembled at some point and reassembled for here and now. Visceral response. Sticks in the mind like a jeremiad.  
Today's Rune: Strength.

You should let them know the Governor is getting ready to sell some art. Or if they want another bullet riddled wall...
