Claire Sherman, it seems, has finally got some free time. Since I got in touch with Sherman about doing a Q&A for us, she’s come off a solo show at DCKT Gallery, moved to Brooklyn for a residency at the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation, opened another solo show at Pippy Houldsworth in London and taught an intensive painting course at Oxbow.

I met Peter last fall, and got to see some of his performances in person. All of his pieces are one-shots, never repeated except in documented form. His website has several of these. He’s Brooklyn-based now, but grew up in the midwest.
Lisa Sanditz lives in Brooklyn, but her 2006 solo show, Flyover, at the Kemper Museum of Art, dealt with some of the more humorous aspects of the Midwestern Landscape, like Subtropolis (above). The Kansas City Subtropolis is on my mind because it also figures into Deb Sokolow’s current installation at the Kemper, you are one step closer to learning the truth (post forthcoming).
