Contemporary Art Exhibit
I went to the Phoenix Art Museum last weekend to see an exhibit I read about in the Museum's monthly newsletter. It's called "Any Moment Now" by Brazilian artist Valeska Soares.
It was a wide-ranging exhibit of pieces she has created over the past 20 years. Some of it looks like collections of items that she has accumulated, but the purpose is to trigger memories in the viewer. And this glass collection did just that for me. I was suddenly remembering things I had seen in the homes of family friends and relatives.
This room was rather fun. Each one of those light bulbs in the ceiling had a pull chain that went all the way to the floor creating a sort of beaded curtain. Visitors were encouraged to walk through the beaded curtain and pull the chains to turn the lights on and off. On the other side was another collection, this time of a variety of headboards for beds.
I enjoyed this one very much and will probably visit it again before it's gone.
