INNER SPACE

by

Spread out over two expansive floors — one laid with Jim Lambie’s shiny colored-tape installation, another carpeted with wispy pink shag — curator Phong Bui’s Spaced Out: Migration to the Interior induces a mycological journey without the ingestion of mushrooms. Fungi do appear, in a large sculpture by Roxy Paine, a huge (16-foot-across) vinyl print by Chris Martin, and other incarnations; trippy videos and strong abstract paintings (including Sylvie Fleury’s colliding polka-dot orbs) further amp the head-shop vibe. Today, poet Robert Kelly and artist Nathlie Provosty celebrate the launch of their book collaboration, The Color Mill, part of a series of “psychedelic” readings throughout the show’s run. As Amherst professor Nick Bromell once observed, “You may never have taken LSD, but America has.”

Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: Nov. 2. Continues through Dec. 14, 2014
