'The Way You Look' 

When: Through Oct. 7
Phone: 802-865-7166
In the basement studio space at BCA Center, Burlington City Arts has launched a new and exciting initiative. The “Artist’s Artists” series asks Vermont-based artists to guest curate a show featuring those who have in some way influenced their own practice. For the inaugural installation, sculptor Pete Moran collides the ethnographically inflected films of Rhode Island-based Ashish Avikunthak with environmental sculpture by Brooklyn’s Tim Simonds. The result is a bit of a head-scratcher: a plush carpet platform surrounded by Simonds’ industrial interventions, plus one slowly bleaching head of celery to keep you company as you watch Avikunthak’s meditative, nonlinear “Et Cetera.” It’s a strange theater indeed, and a welcome hideout from the consistent pressure for everything to make sense.
