Hop on POP

At Blaffer, it's all about bright, vibrant colors, lush imagery and glossy surfaces

"POPulence" has some strong work, but as you go through the show, something weird happens: It all starts to seem the same. I've been to minimalistart shows where the work didn't feel this similar. After a bit I realized that the works aren't the reason -- it's how they've been hung. For the most part, they've been spread out through Blaffer's sprawling space with one example from each artist in just about every room. It creates a sense of déjà vu as you move through the show. The scattered way the work is installed effectively blends and homogenizes the show. The catalog becomes a welcome respite, allowing you to see images of each artist's work grouped together, and letting you get a sense of it without having to flip through your visual memory.
