Claire Rojas, Last Chance Weekend by Steve Ruiz

One of the shows I enjoyed but never wrote about was Claire Rojas’ Believe MeKavi Gupta. A folk fantasy on massive and micro scales, Believe Me is a blender trip through imagination and culture with narratives as endearing and bizzare as any real folk lore. As a kicker, their second space features the show Variations on a Theme, worth seeing for more than just the Angel Otero pieces.

If you haven’t made it up to Kavi Gupta yet, this weekend is your last chance for a bit – the shows go down on the 25th, and the next exhibition (Melanie Schiff) isn’t scheduled until September 11th. Some other shows to catch before they close: SAIC’s Making Modern closes this Saturday, Tony Wight will be taking down his two shows next Friday until the Robyn O’Neil show on 9/11, and Western Exhibitions will close out its two shows show next Saturday, with their 9/11 openening featuring Paul Nudd and Dan Attoe. Lots of stuff to see.
