My first visit to the Christopher Williamson show at the Art Institute, The Production Line of Happiness. I really enjoyed the space that frames the photographic piece within this work — beautiful. Always fun to listen to other people talking about art in museums. The security guard was chatting with a couple about this piece, and the neighboring video in the adjacent black box viewing space by another artist. They agreed that this was art…and that there was NO way the video could compare. I listened a bit more, and then went to confront the annoying, garish yellow wall text outside the space, which I not too shortly after gave up on myself, only making it through the Barbara Kruger piece about framing, which seemed appropriate, and then headed to check out the Dreams & Echoes show in prints and drawing.
