June QUIZ - Wolfgang Tillmans, & Catherine Opie at MCA
First off, both of these great photographers currently have Solo Shows at Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
Here is a brief blurb from MCA's press release..
One of the most important and distinctive artists to emerge in the 1990s, his work is internationally recognized for its richly evocative and stylishly intimate reflection on the often overlooked objects and moments in everyday life.
Much of his work concentrates on deceptively casual and unforced views of friends and acquaintances, catching them off-guard and at their most unguardedly “human.”
So, I have only one question.. is "Smokin'Jo", a Joesph or a Joanne? Anyone Help???
By Catherine Opie.
I'm not sure if he or anyone is MAN enough, but, Tyler did a very insightful post on Catherine Opie a few months ago,
plus a while ago Tyler wrote one of the most detailed feature on Opie for BlackBox, both are well worth checking out!
So we had several bright MAO readers respond with the correct answers in just under a few hours! Either this QUIZ was too easy.. or the MAO readers
have nothing interesting to do are getting really smart!! But, My stalker friend, Kenny Tyburski (Oh. and FYI.. His last name is pronounced Tie-Ber-ski... not Tie-BREW-ski !!) of the wonderful DCKT Gallery was the first! So, A Big MAO Congrats goes out to Kenny T!
Kenny has chosen Visual Aids as his charity.. Great choice KennyT!! They are also having a charity fund raiser which DennisC and KennyT or "DCKT" have been doing a nice job of promoting! Which I think you can still buy tickets and attend the event tonight.
